Apple pulls HealthKit apps from its iOS 8 launch after discovering a last-minute bug

Well, iOS 8 is here and, assuming you can get through to the servers and free up enough space on your device, you’ll have a shiny, new operating system to play with.

CARROT Fit’s HealthKit update has also been pulled from the App Store.MacRumors reports that developer Brian Mueller posted on Twitter that HealthKit is “broken and isn’t ready to launch” with no ETA on a fix, but those tweets have since been deleted.

SMS – You can now relay messages from other than iPhone users …
