The release comes three weeks after the release of iOS 8.2 beta, which included the WatchKit SDK for the upcoming early 2015 launch of Apple Watch.

Yesterday, Apple released iOS 8.1.2 for the public, to address bugs and a fix for ringtone purchases not showing up on devices. Apple also updated its App Store Distribution page yesterday to note iOS 8 is now running on 63% of devices, as of December 8, 2014.

    Is there a fix for battery drain / phone use as a hand warmer? Updated 5s thinking security updates would be good but wouldn’t have bothered having known these bugs were a problem for the latest iOS 8.

  • I had that issue with my 6 Plus when I restored from a previous backup. I did the ‘nuke’ route and started new and it solved both issues. Your mileage may vary of course but it’s worth a try, as your backup will still be in iCloud.

    Was considering that but read other site post where people were finding it didn’t work….will try it. What a pain just bad timing.

    The other thing a little weird was apple support was willing to rollback to 7, I asked if that was possible and they reassured.

    Going to cue up that Mac vs. PC “let me lie here and depreciate” ,
    throw it on loop and contemplate seeing what Samsung had copied lately 😉 ????????????????
