Yesterday Apple released iOS 8.0.1 yesterday to fix some bugs in iOS 8, and while it did that, it caused two more major issues. Users with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were reporting that not only broke Touch ID, but also broke cellular data connections. While many users could probably live without Touch ID for a little while, few can go without cellular connectivity. Luckily Apple has fixed the problem quick by dropping iOS 8.0.2.
This is a minor update just fixing a few bugs. It fixes those two major bugs as well as fixes with the keyboard and with HealthKit. The update is rolling out right now, but is not yet available through an OTA for most users. If you really need it now, go ahead and manually install it using the IPSW files available in the tweet shown below.
