Apple iOS 8.0.1 Update Pulled Amid Reports of Glitches

An Apple spokesperson confirmed to NBCNews on Wednesday that it has pulled its iOS 8.0.1 update after widespread reports that the software has left some users unable to access cell service, among other issues. It is unclear whether the problem affected random iPhone users or certain carriers, as some were able to download the update with no issue. There have also been some reported issues with Touch ID after downloading the update, with some users noting that the feature — which enables users to unlock their phones using their fingerprints — was no longer working.
