Yesterday we passed along a rumor that iOS 8.0.1 would be released soon to patch up a number of bugs, and, sure enough, Apple released it this morning.

In case you weren’t aware, Adobe is readying the next version of its Creative Suite (along with a new Creative Cloud offering) and as always, that will include a swanky new version of Photoshop.
