Another huge iOS 8 bug could delete your iCloud Drive files

iOS 8 iCloud Drive Bug

Apple was quick to release an updated version of its latest mobile operating system after the iOS 8.0.1 rollout proved disastrous, but it appears that the company is still quite a ways from ironing out all the bugs. Last week, security research Stefan Esser noted that QuickType was offering up his unique passwords as autocorrect suggestions, and now MacRumors forum users are reporting that the ‘Reset All Settings’ feature on iOS 8 is deleting iWork documents from the newly-implemented iCloud Drive service.

iOS 8 FAR FROM FLAWLESS: Massive iOS 8 flaw suggests parts of your password in autocomplete

One third-generation iPad user was less than satisfied with the performance of their tablet after updating to iOS 8. In order to fix the problem, they decided to reset all the settings on their iPad, which, according to the text box, should restore the default settings but leave data and media intact. Instead, all of the iWork data disappeared on both the tablet and within iCloud Drive.

MacRumors attempted to recreate the scenario and recorded the same results: files from Apple’s iWork apps, such as Numbers, Page and Keynote, vanished shortly after the settings had been reset. Other files, such as Preview and TextEdit documents, were still accessible.

If you were considering activating iCloud Drive, it might be worth waiting until Apple has time to address this issue. Although it only seems to be affecting iWork apps, users have only just begun to explore the less-than-functional elements of the new software. iOS 8.0.3 might be needed sooner than Apple had planned.
