iOS 8.0.1 Needs a Fix ASAP: Disables Cellular Signals, Touch ID for iPhone 6 Users

Apple just released iOS 8.0.1 at the top of the hour, and it has arrived with numerous bugs. After installing the update, we no longer have a cellular connection, plus Touch ID has been disabled on our iPhone 6 Plus. All that is showing is either “Searching…” or “No Signal”.

From what we’re hearing from you, the Touch ID bug seems to be affecting iPhone 6 models only, as most iPhone 5s users are unaffected. Older iPhone users still have signals.

Even if you try to re-enroll Touch ID, it won’t work on the iPhone 6 Plus in our case:

We have tried multiple reboots, re-inserting the SIM card and resetting network settings but to no avail. You can be sure Apple is aware of the issue and we expect them to push an iOS 8.0.2 update shortly, because having no cell service after an update is a major problem.

Do not install iOS 8.0.1 at this point if you’re an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus user.
