Apple today released iOS 8.1.2 as an over-the-air software update.
This update reportedly includes a number of bug fixes, including a fix for a problem regarding ringtones purchased through the iTunes Store. Apple advises users who have lost ringtones to restore them by visiting https://itunes.com/restore-tones from their iOS devices.
iOS 8.1.2 was not seeded to developers before being released to the public, so we do not know at this point whether it includes any fixes or improvements for blind and low vision users. Please let us know in the comments of any changes that you find.
