According to the CNBC host, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is also pulling the iOS 8.0.1 update as more and more users have started complaining about the issues brought about by the new software for the company’s mobile devices.
“We apologize for the great inconvenience experienced by users, and we are working around the clock to prepare iOS 8.0.2 with a fix for the issue, and will release it as soon as it is ready in the next few days,” Tausche quotes the company as saying in a statement to CNBC.
Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) earned the ire of many users recently after the updated software which was supposed to make iPhones and iPads better started causing problems for the devices instead. Tausche said that users are complaining about calls being dropped and the fingerprint scanner losing its function after the update was installed on their devices.
Other problems identified recently in a Bloomberg report includes forced closing of apps.
