Back in early September, BGR exclusively reported that Apple was hard at work on its iOS 8.0.1 update long before iOS 8 was even released to the public. Now, a new report from MacRumors claims that the update has already been seeded to Apple’s carrier partners ahead of its upcoming public release. The blog goes on to supply what it claims to be a change log for Apple’s upcoming update, and the bad news is that none of the major complaints we’ve been seeing appear to be addressed in this first update.

Here is the iOS 8.0.1 change log from the report:

  • Phone: Addresses bugs with call forwarding and freezing when accessing visual voicemail
  • Keyboard: Fixes an issue with keypad not appearing to enter iCloud Keychain verification codes
  • Safari: Fixes a problem with videos occasionally not playing
  • Sharing: Fixes AirDrop support for Passbook passes
  • VPN: Addresses an issue with installing VPN profiles

It is possible that additional changes were made in iOS 8.0.1, of course, though we still don’t know exactly when Apple plans to release it.
