Update, 9/27/2014: Some users are reporting some accessibility improvements in iOS 8.0.2. Check out the comments section for all the details!
Apple has just released iOS 8.0.2, an update which brings several bug fixes and feature improvements. iOS 8.0.2 comes on the heels of iOS 8.0.1, an update which broke cellular service and Touch ID for some users and which was later withdrawn from circulation by Apple. In addition to including all of the bug fixes from the iOS 8.0.1 release, iOS 8.0.2 includes a fix for the cellular and Touch ID issues some users experienced in iOS 8.0.1.
The release notes for iOS 8.0.2, via 9 to 5 Mac, list the following improvements in this update:
" • 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
• Fixes an issue that prevented some apps from accessing photos from the Photo Library
• Improves the reliability of the Reachability feature on 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 "
While there is no mention of VoiceOver improvements in the release notes for iOS 8.0.2—and while it is likely too early since the release of iOS 8 to realistically expect accessibility-specific bug fixes—please do let us know in the comments if you notice any VoiceOver changes in this new update.
iOS 8.0.2 is available over-the-air or via iTunes for all supported devices.
