To resolve ringtone issues and minor bug fixes, Apple has released another update to its iOS 8.1, bumping it to the version 8.1.2.
Some users reported that ringtones purchased via iTunes Store were removed from devices, so the new update primarily deals with this issue.
Once the update arrives, Apple users will see a notification saying, “This release includes bug fixes and addresses a problem where ringtones purchased through iTunes Store may have been removed from you device.”
The company has also said that affected users can restore the deleted tones from itunes.com/restore-tones. The previous iOS 8.1. update was rolled-out approximately three weeks ago i.e. in mid-November, and mainly focused miscellaneous bug fixes and security updates.
Two devices – the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 were badly affected with the iOS 8 update, making these devices slow in performance. So the iOS 8.1.1 update also brought stability and performance improvements for the iPhone 4S and iPad 2.
The new iOS 8.1.2 update is now available for download, and is compatible with iPhone 4S and later iPhone models, the iPad 2 and later iPad models, and the fifth-generation iPod touch.
