Ringtones are not the only thing fixed. With 8.1.1, my new iPad, when I wanted to add another pdf book to my iPad using iTunes, it would not just send it to my iPad, but it would then reload all 40 GB of my music files into my iPad. But before they would transfer, it would take an equally long time just figuring out what it was going to do. It did that every time I connected to iTunes. Others have reported this problem as well. Now with 8.1.2 its fixed!
Freaky! Glad to hear that was fixed.
Looks like I spoke too soon. It worked fine the first time and every once in a while, but most of the time it does what it did before. So this problem was not fixed for me.
Wasn't the only thing missing from my iPhone, just one of the many things. I backed up all the time! To my computer, to iCloud, to a 3rd party program. Then my iPhone (or iCloud) complained it had't been backed up in over a month. And I couldn't erase songs or albums (still?). So I went to iTunes 12 and it didn't know my iPhone from a new one. Backed it up, reset it, and tried to restore. An entire week later, learning in person all the reasons 2-factor auth can go wrong, I finally pin down every last thing that brings my iPhone back to "normal" and I find out there's a software update!
I should mention, perhaps, that I have an iPhone 5 that had a horrible time making the transition to 8.0, losing its ringtones back then. But it has never become so confused before. My I Pad 2 had a horrible experience going from 6.0 to 7.0, thereby causing me to have triple backup insurance. My iPad loves iOS 8.0. Go figure!
My iPhone6 128GB says the update is 64 and change MB
That's odd - my 64 GB iPhone 6 had the same number as Josh's, which is why I tried to be a little more specific when editing.
I had connectivity problems with my car via Bluetooth (frequent interruptions) but this latest update has fixed that totally.
