PSA: Do NOT update your iDevice to iOS 8.0.1




radioactiveWell, this isn’t good. Hopefully you caught our update to today’s iOS 8.0.1 announcement post, but if you haven’t, we’ll say it again to save you and your precious iDevice any pain and suffering. Reports are flooding in that iOS 8.0.1 basically destroys your iPhone, completely breaking cellular connectivity as well as Touch ID on compatible devices.

Apple has yet to pull the update on affected devices, so you’re still free to update if you so choose – but don’t. Seriously, you really shouldn’t. Apple will likely upload a fixed version shortly, and until then it’s better to sit this one out and wait. If it’s too late, you might want to look into downgrading to iOS 8.0.0 or iOS 7.1.2 while you still can.

Update 09/24/14 @ 2:10 PM EST: It appears that these issues are limited to iPhone 6 and 6 Plus models, however it would still be wise to hold out updating no matter what model you have until Apple clears this mess up.
