Right on the heels of an update, Apple Thursday issued the iOS 8.0.2 update.

This fix is for the flawed-and-quickly-pulled 8.0.1 update that disabled Touch ID and cellular capabilities on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. This latest update not only addresses these issues but reinstates the improvements and fixes initially found in iOS 8.0.1.

Fixes include:
• An issue where third-party keyboards could become deselected when a user enters their passcode.
• An issue that prevented some apps from accessing photos from the Photo Library.
• Improves the reliability of the Reachability feature on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
• An issue that could cause unexpected cellular data usage when receiving SMS/MMS messages.
• Better support of Ask to Buy for Family Sharing for in-app purchases.
• An issue where ringtones sometimes did not end up restored from iCloud backups.
• Fixes a bug that prevented uploading photos and videos from Safari.
