Apple’s iOS 8.0.1, for those that missed it, was a significant disaster, and also a significant imperfection in what has actually or else been a rather smooth launch of the company’s brand-new mobile software program. Having rolled out a married couple of days ago, it included major defects that viewed iPhone 6 as well as 6 Plus owners entrusted No Service and a non-functioning Touch ID finger print sensing unit, and also in all sincerity, Apple had not made such a blunder because the iOS 6 Maps debacle. Back in 2012 when Maps initially appeared, the scapegoating seem to start, as well as end, with then-iOS SVP Scott Forstall, who was quickly ejected from the executive group and also Apple in basic, yet incidentally, it has now been revealed that a participant of the quality control team amidst the Apple Maps scandal may also have been partly responsible for the blundered iOS 8.0.1 launch.

When it involves introducing a major new piece of software application, Apple, similar to Google, Microsoft and also the several other heavyweights in business, aims to ensure that users could delight in some brand-new, advanced attributes. Yet equally vital is that the changed interface actually functions, and also although iOS 8.0 had a reasonable dosage of to-be-expected bugs, they were slight as compared to the oversights made with iOS 8.0.1.


As held true with Apple Maps and iOS 6, when, embarrassingly, Tim Chef was forced to suggest solutions from rivals like Nokia and Google until the Cupertino giant got its residence in order, the Mac mold released an apology for iOS 8.0.1 and also entirely drawing the software and also advising individuals to downgrade. To its credit history, Apple handled to scurry iOS 8.0.2 together in merely 24 hrs, which promptly resolved the glaring bugs of the preceding release, however while the matter is now resolved as for customers are worried, the blame video game is likely to occur over at Cupertino HQ.

As per a report over at Bloomberg, the identical Apple quality control supervisor that supervised iOS 6 as well as its Maps app leads a 100-strong group that checks for major issues in iOS before it hits everyone channels, and also with some 40,000 iPhone 6 as well as iPhone 6 Plus customers having actually been afflicted by the error in iOS 8.0.1, stated individual might soon be in receipt of the Forstall therapy.

The report has yet to be confirmed, as well as hence, the manager’s name has actually not been divulged, yet if discovered culpable two times in the room of two years, it’s apparently improbable that there will be a third time.
