iOS 8.0.2 update with support for HealthKit apps rolls out.

Well after a few days of embarrassment for Apple, finally the latest IOS 8 patch has been rolled out.

As you may recall, when iOS went live a week ago Apple had to disable support for HealthKit app integration due to various issues. The iOS 8.0.1 patch had supposed to resolve this and enable HealthKit apps, but this was subsequently recalled due to it causing issues with signal and Touch ID, amongst other issues.

Well today iOS 8.0.2 is finally being rolled out and we can confirm that this has now enabled support for HealthKit applications. These third part apps are designed to integrate with Apples Health Kit suite and offer simplified interfaces and extra features. According to 9to5Mac, the only one currently available is FitPort which acts as a cool interface for your health stats.

To be fair on Apple, it has only taken a few days to resolve the issue and fans will be pleased to get to grips with the new health apps.

Apple withdraws latest iOS 8 update

It seems its not all been plain sailing with the rollout of Apples latest iOS 8 update.

After the HealthKit fiasco Apple have now had another embarrassment in the form of the iOS 8.0.1 update which only went live earlier today. The update was slated as bringing some major fixes to the platform, but this has now also been pulled from the app store due to some user reported bugs.

Apple will clearly be feeling a little red faced in light of this further hiccup.
