Apple on Wednesday released the iOS 8.0.1 update, which aims to fix some early glitches in iOS 8, which was released last week. However, many users, especially of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, complained that the update affected their ability to make calls. Some users also complained that the update interfered with Apple’s Touch ID system, which allows people to use their fingerprints to unlock their phones.

Apple said it was pulling the update while it investigated the reports. The company said it plans to release the advice to users “as soon as possible.”
