    Apparently the newest iOS8 update that is fixing the bugs in the Health tracker shit kills touch ID and cellular service for some people. What a fucking cock-up, this launch is so Windows-esque.

    I would not recommend anyone install 8.0.1 update.

    Apple's iOS 8.0.1 update breaks cellular connectivity, Touch ID support for many users

    Following the release of iOS 8.0.1 on Wednesday, many users began experiencing issues with the maintenance and software update, finding that their handset could no longer establish a cellular connection or recognize their fingerprint upon installing.




    Users who have not yet installed iOS 8.0.1 are advised to hold off, as the problems presented by the update appear to affect a large number of users.

    Initial reports suggest that the update causes issues for a variety of different iPhone models, including the newest iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Carrier connectivity issues are occurring across the board, affecting AppleInsider readers on Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint.

    After updating their system to iOS 8.0.1, users have also found that the Touch ID fingerprint unlock for their handset no longer works. Attempts to add a new fingerprint to the system return the error message shown above.

    In the meantime, users can still unlock their iPhone with their secure passcode, and connect to data over Wi-Fi.

    Hello darkness, my old friend
    I always wait a couple of weeks on any iOS update, just to see what bugs emerge and allow time for them to be ironed out. No iOS feature is crucial to have the day it's released.

    Apple is starting to turn into "BIG BROTHER" if they aren't there already.

    HomeKit source code was given out "freely" at the last expo. They are allowing programmers to make products to automate their life. Controlling sprinkler, alarm, television, lighting, heating, etc. Apple will be able to control this with the AppleTV or phone. Get ready for the next innovation of automation in an all-in-one application.

    I checked out the phones at the apple store today. 6 plus is pretty cool, fits in my pocket fine. The bending shit is a killer for me though (along with the non-removable battery). Won't use a case, if its that big I don't want to make it any thicker.
