Apple has released the iOS 8.1.2 update for compatible iPhones and iPads. The latest version of the mobile operating system fixes some bugs, and makes sure users won't lose the ringtones they purchased from the iTunes Store.

Apple released iOS 8.1.1 in mid-November, an update that largely focused on improving the performance of older devices.

There was an issue, confirmed by Apple itself, that caused some iPhone users to lose ringtones purchased from the iTunes Store – the ringtones were inadvertently removed from their devices. Customers who have lost the ringtones they purchased will be able to recover them by visiting from their iOS device updated to the latest iOS 8.1.2 version.

Other bug fixes are contained in iOS 8.1.2, but they are apparently small enough that Apple did not specify them in the changelog.

In September, the first update to iOS 8 caused several problems for many Apple users. The 8.0.1 update was deemed disastrous, causing malfunctions in TouchID, Apple's fingerprint sensor, and the loss of mobile connectivity. Apple apologized publicly after withdrawing the update to fix it.

On top of this, the amount of space needed for the first iOS 8 download was considerable – many users had to delete photos and videos in order to make room for the update. Yet, despite what appeared to be a terrible update, iOS 8 adoption is growing, reaching over 60% in early December

According to Apple's metrics tracking devices accessing the App Store, approximately 63% of mobile users using an iOS device are running iOS 8.x. This is up from 47% recorded in October.
