Apple on Wednesday quickly pulled a troubled update to iOS 8 following an outcry over problems with the new version.

The iOS 8.0.1 update aimed to fix issues that have plagued Apple's mobile operating system software since it arrived last week. But many users immediately reported problems after downloading the update, including their iPhones no longer connecting to a cellular network, with a message of "no service." iPhone owners also reported issues with Touch ID after downloading the update, with some noting that the feature -- which allows people to unlock their phones using their fingerprints -- was no longer working.

Apple says in days there will be a patch or fix available for download. I downloaded it for my 19th century iPhone 4S and it works fine. Knock on wood.
