Gonna install iOS 8.0.2 right now or wait for lab rats like me to test it first? Can’t blame you one tiny bit, though you should know that Apple says fewer than 40K iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were actually effected by the iOS 8.0.1 blues.
Rilly? Yep, really.
“iOS 8.0.2 is now available for users, it fixes an issue that affected iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users who downloaded iOS 8.0.1, and includes improvements and bug fixes originally in iOS 8.0.1,” said Apple, hat in hand. “We apologize for inconveniencing the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users who were impacted by the bug in iOS 8.0.1.”
New in iOS 8.0.2
— Fixes an issue in iOS 8.0.1 that impacted cellular network connectivity and Touch ID on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus
— Fixes a bug so HealthKit apps can now be made available on the App Store
— Addresses an issue where 3rd party keyboards could become deselected when a user enters their passcode

So what’s the difference between iOS 8.0.1, which Apple pulled, and today’s freshly released iOS 8.0.2? That first line only — ‘fixes an issue… that impacted… iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.’
This sample size of three iPad 3s and one iPad mini are running iOS 8.0.2 Update with no obvious problems. Moreover, it seems to have resolved an issue where Safari would hang, especially when editing a web form.
How is iOS 8.0.2 working out for you?
