Just over a week after releasing iOS 8, Apple today has released iOS 8.0.1 to the public with various bug fixes and improvements.
The iOS 8.0.1 release notes, via 9 to 5 Mac, list the following improvements:
"This release contains improvements and bug fixes, including:

• Addresses an issue where 3rd party keyboards could become deselected when a user enters their passcode
• Fixes an issue that prevented some apps from accessing photos from the Photo Library
• Improves the reliability of the Reachability feature on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus
• Fixes an issue that could cause unexpected cellular data usage when receiving SMS/MMS messages
• Better support of Ask To Buy for Family Sharing for In-App Purchases
• Fixes an issue where ringtones were sometimes not restored from iCloud backups
• Fixes a bug that prevented uploading photos and videos from Safari"
While iOS 8.0.1 brings a host of bug fixes, the 9 to 5 Mac article goes on to note that many users are experiencing issues with the cellular and Touch ID functions of their devices. At this time, we are unable to independently confirm the authenticity of these reports, but they do appear to be making the rounds on other Apple-focused news sources--as well as on Twitter.
While there are no VoiceOver improvements mentioned in the release notes, and while it is likely too early in the iOS 8 update cycle to see any accessibility-specific bug fixes, please do let us know in the comments if you notice any changes to VoiceOver.
iOS 8.0.1 is available via Over-the-Air Update or iTunes for all devices which can run iOS 8.
