SHAFAQNA – Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has released yet another update for its iOS firmware, taking the version to iOS 8.1.2. The latest software update follows a series of frequent updates that the company has released since the public launch of the iOS 8, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus.
We decided to take the latest update for a spin and see if it resolves any bugs for us.
The update does not feature any major visual changes or added features. According to the official change log, iOS 8.1.2 instead features a number of bug fixes and performance enhancements.
The change log also mentions a specific bug that had been plaguing users since the release of iOS 8.1.1, where any ringtone bought from iTunes had been deleted off users’ iPhones.
The new iOS 8.1.2 update also breaks the TaiG jailbreak even though the team behind the jailbreak exploits claims to have a crack for the latest firmware as well.
Any users, therefore, looking to preserve their jailbreak should refrain from updating their device or they could lose their jailbreak and all associated data.
The new firmware is also expected to improve Wi-Fi connectivity for users of older devices such as the iPhone 5, who had been experiencing inconsistent Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.
The update is also expected to include performance improvements for users of the iPhone 4S as well as the iPad 2.
