Technology giant Apple, have pulled the iOS 8.0.1 update for iPhones, iPads and iPod Touch after it was found to disable security features and mobile connectivity on a large number of devices.
The update was released on Wednesday in order to reinstate access to HealthKit and fix various bugs. But a large volume of users found that their phones were not connecting properly after the update, so Apple were forced to pull it.
Overnight, users reported loss of signal, the Touch ID capability and data service after installing the update.
“I would call Apple for an answer on this issue. But hang on I can’t. NO SERVICE!” ranted one user online.
The glitch seems to only affect newer models of the iPhone.
The phone broke records on its release last Friday.
Users have now been told to reset their phones if they wish to reconnect to their network.
A statement from Apple read: “We are actively investigating these reports and will provide information as quickly as we can. In the meantime, we have pulled back the iOS 8.0.1 update.”
This news is the latest in an on-going Apple saga, that saw furious users report that the new iPhone 6 Plus bends if kept in your back pocket.
Despite the problems, the new iPhone broke records when it was released – selling 10 million models after it became available on Friday.
