iOS 8.1.2 is now available for download

Presumably, there are some smaller bug fixes in the update, but we'll have to do some testing to confirm that. The only item listed in the change log for the update is a fix to restore ringtones that you might have purchased from iTunes, and had been removed unexpectedly. That sounds like a fairly low-impact issue that probably didn't have too many people who were affected (and even fewer who would have noticed that anything was missing). But, it's always nice to have a fix for a problem.
It's a small update,and it is available over-the-air right now. But, we do know that there is a major update on the horizon. Apple has already seeded iOS 8.2 to developers, which brings support for WatchKit. The Apple Watch is expected for release in the spring of 2015, so it is likely that iOS 8.2 will be hitting around that same time.

Use iTunes on your computer to update the software. It downloads the update onto your computer and then installs it on your phone. When you do it OTA, it downloads and installs onto your phone, and the download is usually big.

Thats pretty large for only a fix for ringtones. I guess allot more has been done. My brothers 5s has a problem with picking up the phone as it freezes. Hope for him and if others have the problem that it is fixed with this update. Seems to me that would be a bigger issue than the ringtones
