Apple had to rather embarrassingly pull an update for the new iOS8 operating system just hours after launch.
The update for iPhones and iPads had a string of errors including Touch ID technology not working.
Apple said: “We have received reports of an issue with the iOS 8.0.1 update. We are actively investigating these reports and will provide information as quickly as we can. In the meantime we have pulled back the iOS 8.0.1 update.”
As expected, Twitter was abuzz with complaints about the new operating system.
iOS 8 makes me feel like I’m using an Android device again. Faulty update, malfunctioning, apps not working properly. #updategate

The news comes after iPhone 6 owners complained that the phone bent out of shape in their pockets.
