Apple has almost immediately released the iOS 8.0.2 as a fix to the iOS 8.0.1 update. The latter which was released a couple of days ago caused loss of service and Touch ID issues on the newer iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
Apple responded to the issues with iOS 8.0.1 almost immediately, by pulling the update and even issuing a downgrade guide for users who switch their devices back to iOS 8.0.
Now the iOS 8.0.2 update has arrived, fixing the issues with iOS 8.0.1 and also including the bug fixes to iOS 8.0 which were originally intended for iOS 8.0 users, including fixes to HealthKit, 3rd party keyboards, and much more.
Based on initial reactions, it does seam like iOS 8.0.2 does what its meant to do, so it should be a recommended update to anyone on iOS 8.0.1. However we wont blame anyone on older versions of iOS who chose to wait longer until Apple irons out all the bugs on iOS 8 with a more stable release.
The update can be downloaded OTA (over-the-air) or by manually downloading the the IPSW file and manually installing it using iTunes.
