As we should all know by now, Apple has officially pushed iOS 12.1.2 out into the public domain. With that release out and available, we’re going to take a look at the final changes, release notes, new features and even changelog of everything related to iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch users.

Apple’s release of iOS 12.1.2 may have come as a surprise to some. Especially considering that the Cupertino-based business hasn’t made a huge song-and-dance about this particular version of the platform and only released a minimal number of pre-release seeds to developers.

If you haven’t heard much about this release and are wondering what all of the fuss is about, then you could check out Apple’s official release notes or you could put those notes together alongside this post to ensure that you catch everything from every angle.

This firmware release by Apple does contain a number of bug fixes and improvements that are designed to make the platform more streamlined and to promote a more positive user experience. However, although iOS 12.1.2 doesn’t expose any brand new functionality and doesn’t integrate any new features, it does contain some very important changes that are particularly relevant to those in China. As part of Apple’s ongoing court battle with Qualcomm Inc., a court had ruled that Apple’s products infringe on a number of patents held by the aforementioned Qualcomm. This ruling prompted Apple to stipulate that it would fully comply with the ruling by making some changes at a software level. And that’s exactly what the primary focus of iOS 12.1.2. is.

iOS 12.1.2 includes bug fixes for your iPhone. This update:

– Fixes bugs with eSIM activation for iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max

– Addresses an issue that could affect cellular connectivity in Turkey for iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max

Apart from that, iOS 12.1.2 also fixes eSIM activation issues along with cellular connectivity issues on the newer iPhone XR, XS and XS Max in Turkey.

This isn’t the largest or most impressive firmware release that Apple has ever pushed out into the public domain but it is definitely one of the most important in recent times from a legal requirement perspective.

If you want to read the full changes, improvements, and verbose release notes directly from the horse’s mouth, then you can see them listed above. Of course, if you have a compatible iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, then you can also see the release notes within the Software Update mechanism as and when you come to download and install the iOS 12.1.2 firmware.
