Apple will push to release another update to iOS8 after the failure of an update released Wednesday that wreaked havoc on some phones, according to its website.

Along with instructions to uninstall the problematic 8.0.1 update, Apple said on its support page “We are also preparing iOS 8.0.2 with a fix for the issue, and will release it as soon as it’s ready in the next few days.”

The update iOS 8.0.1 was supposed to fix multiple problems with the new software, launched last week, including one with Apple’s HealthKit feature.


But soon after the update became available Wednesday morning, iPhone users took to social media to complain that their cellphone service and ability to use Touch ID were not working.

Once 8.0.1 is uninstalled, the Health app again won’t work, but it will be fixed in the iOS 8.0.2 update, according to Apple.
