Apple is already preparing the first update to its iOS 8 operating system in order to fix a number of issues that have plagued iPhone and iPad owners since updating to the new system.
Apple released iOS 8 on 17 September, promising a host of new improvements, features and functions, such as its SwiftKey keyboard. However, many owners of Apple devices, especially of iPhone 4S phones, have complained of numerous issues.
This includes poor battery life, sluggish performance, random app crashes, the keyboard's failure to appear in certain apps and video playback issues on web browsers. V3 can attest to many of these issues, having updated both an iPhone 5C and iPad Mini to iOS 8.
Apple appears to be moving quickly to address this, though, with a report on MacRumous saying a source had confirmed the iOS 8.0.1 update is being readied. This will tackle the video issues, problems with the phone app and also problems with the use of virtual private network tools.
MacRumours noted it had already tracked some devices running iOS 8.0.1 and said it is likely Apple already had the update planned even before iOS 8 was released. No release date for iOS 8.0.1 has yet been made available.
It is not surprising that an update to iOS 8 is on its way, as any new software upgrade usually requires a few tweaks and fixes. So far, despite some criticism levelled at iOS 8, it has already been installed by 46 percent of devices owners.
Furthermore, despite the issues, Apple is no doubt pleased not to have to tackle as many of the problems and complaints as last year’s launch of iOS 7 caused.
