I just upgraded my iPhone 6 Plus to iOS 8.0.1 as soon as it was available.
But after installing the update I am getting “No Service”, and it looks like I’m not alone.
Several readers are reporting the same issue.
The update includes number of bug fixes and improvements such as:
- 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
- Fixes an issue that prevented some apps from accessing photos from the Photo Library
- Improves the reliability of the Reachability feature on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus
- Fixes an issue that could cause unexpected cellular data usage when receiving SMS/MMS messages
- Better support of Ask To Buy for Family Sharing for In-App Purchases
- Fixes an issue where ringtones were sometimes not restored from iCloud backups
- Fixes a bug that prevented uploading photos and videos from Safari
I will let you know if I have figured out a workaround for the issue. Let me know if you’ve hit the “No Service” issue as well after updating, and if you’ve figure out a workaround.
It looks like people are also reporting issues with Touch ID. We would recommend to avoid upgrading to iOS 8.0.1.
The typical troubleshooting steps such as restarting or hard reset didn’t fix the issue for me. But some are reporting that it has helped fix the issue. So do check and let us know.
Resetting Network settings also did not help.
You need to install the iOS 8 update manually to fix the issue. You can download it from our download page:
If you need help, please use this guide to fix the ‘No Service’ and Touch ID issue. I just used it to fix the problem.
It looks like the issue was affecting mostly iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users. Apple has finally pulled the iOS 8.0.1 update.
