Errors such a loss of network and WiFi connectivity, freezing apps, syncing problems, and bugs with the Safari web browser are being reported by forum users.
Despite being released to plug the problems in the previous version of Apple's mobile operating system, it would appear iOS 8.0.2 has broken as much as it has fixed.
After complaints about the bugs iOS 8.0.1 caused for several generations of the iPhone – having been originally rolled out to fix errors in iOS 8 – Apple promptly pulled the update and replaced it with iOS 8.0.2.
While some savvy users have found ways to work around the problems, others have been left to either vent their frustration on the forums or visit one of Apple's stores.
One forum user was particularly incensed by the errors encountered on the iPhone 6: "Ridiculous. Apple really needs to get it together. This is the worst OS release yet."
Another complained: "After updating to iOS 8.0.2 [I] have problems with my cellular reception on iPhone 5S, no service appears every few minutes."
Other complaints were voiced on Twitter.

One comment on V3's sister website the Inquirer voiced anger and confusion at the problems iOS 8.0.2 has caused for the iPad.
"What are we supposed to do? My iPad 2 has so many issues...more now with 8.0.2. I couldn't afford the iPad Air then and can't now. Apple owes me a new iPad. Surely they tested the different iOS before launch on all Apple devices. This isn't fair...this isn't fair...this isn't fair," wrote the commenter.
Some forum users believe the problems caused by updating to the latest version of iOS is a ploy by Apple to encourage users of older iPhones to upgrade to either the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus.
One user explained his take on the alleged conspiracy: "Because iOS 8 is so awful. And Apple are making us buy the new iPhone 6/6+. That's why iOS 8 is lagging, full of bugs...because they want our money."
iOS 8 hit the iPhone 4S particulalry heavily, with users reporting almost crippling slowdown on the older smartphone.
V3 contacted Apple for comment on how it plans to address the issues raised, but so far the company has yet to respond.
While Apple will likely be pushing out another update to resolve these problems, the company has remained silent about any plans it has to roll out another version of iOS 8.
Despite the errors in iOS 8, Apple has still sold more than 10 million iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus handsets.
