Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has removed the iOS 8 update that it had rolled out for iPhone iPad, and iPod touch users. The move came after several users complained that the new update causes some of the phones features not to work.
There are users who complained that the update causes Touch ID feature not to function while others pointed out that it interfered with their cellular networks, rendering them unable to make calls.

Some even questioned whether it was actually made to bend. Social media was flooded with users showing pictures of their bent phones while others posted videos of them bending their phones. The iPhone started selling in stores last week going ahead to make a record opening weekend sales.
The Cupertino, California-based company had released the new update on Wednesday, but withdrew soon after several complaints filed in. The update, iOS 8.0.1, was released to fix some bugs that users had been complaining about such as popular apps crashing, apps not able to access stored photos, and a host of other issues. When Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) received the complaints, the tech giant acted fast to release an update, but that too brought its own issues.
