Apple released iOS 8.1.2 to the public today to help solve the mystery of disappearing ringtones on iOS devices.
The iOS update is being made available to the public despite never being made available to developers for testing before its wide release. iOS 8.1.2 fixes a bug that caused ringtones to disappear from iPhones even if they were purchased through iTunes.
To restore any missing ringtones, Apple advises users to visit iTunes.com/restoretones from your iOS device. The free update is available now via OTA download or directly from iTunes. Because this build hasn’t been tested yet though, you might want to wait for the early downloaders to report that it’s ok.
