To update to the new version, iOS 8.0.2, go to your device’s Settings > General > Software Update, and off you go.

In case you missed Update-gate yesterday, Apple released its first update for iOS 8 since making the new operating system available last week, but it caused widespread issues for people’s devices. Some folks reported difficulty using their iPhone’s Touch ID, and others reported interrupted cell service.

Apple quickly pulled the update and directed users to revert back to iOS 8.0.0.

Yesterday’s update was intended to fix a first set of bugs the OS encountered after its release, namely problems with HealthKit and third-party keyboards, among others.
