  1. Apple has launched yet another mobile software update this week, and this time it (hopefully) won't knock out your iPhone's cellular service. Available now, iOS 8.0.2 brings the HealthKit and Reachability fixes that were meant for iOS 8.0.1, while avoiding the cellular network issue that plagued the previous update.


    One of iOS 8.0.1's intended features was to minimize data usage during text messages, but the update caused a multitude of iPhone owners to lose their cellular signal entirely after downloading the patch. As a result, Apple took the update down within an hour and provided affected users with away to upgrade back to iOS 8.0 via iTunes.
  2. Launched two days after the botched iOS 8.0.1 release, version 8.0.2 packs mostly the same changes, and hopefully won't keep you from calling and texting your friends. One of the main fixes is the death of the HealthKit bug, which prevented fitness apps from working with Apple's much-touted health hub.

  3. iOS 8.0.2 aims to improve Reachability, a new feature that lets iPhone 6 and 6 Plus users shift around the screen to make apps more thumb-friendly. The update cures some photo and video-related bugs, tightens up third-party keyboard support and improves the new "Ask to Buy For Family Sharing" feature for little ones trying to make in-app purchases.


    As always, if you're looking to update to iOS 8.0.2, head to Settings, select General and then Software Update. Storage requirements vary by device, but you'll need about 64 MB free for an iPhone.

    It's been a tumultuous week for Apple, with bent iPhones, iOS camera issues and iOS 8.0.1's catastrophic launch all getting tons of attention. To Apple's credit, the company at least seems to be taking care of these problems quickly, starting with today's update - iOS8 Application Development.
