I initially downloaded iOS 8.1.2 as an OTA update. After installing this update on my 6+, the dark iOS QWERTY keyboard (the one you see in Spotlight search or the password prompt in the iTunes and App Stores) consisted of all question marks. And the emoji pages were mostly blank in the dark keyboard. Not jailbroken or anything. I downloaded the iOS 8.1.2 IPSW and did a manual update in iTunes. The emoji issue is now resolved, but the dark iOS QWERTY keyboard still consists of all question marks. Is anybody else experiencing this? I'd like to know whether I can hold tight for a forthcoming fix from Apple or I will have to blow my day tomorrow doing an erase+restore. I have to say, this is becoming an all-too-frequent occurrence. Apple pushes an update that screws up one of my devices and nonchalantly suggests an erase+restore as a remedy. When you have a big app library like I do, an erase+restore is a royal pain. Apple should take better care not to put its users in this situation. I'm not a troll--I've owned every generation of iMac, MBP, iPhone, and iPad. In MY experience (your mileage may of course vary), software stability has taken a complete nosedive since Mavericks and iOS 7. Thanks, all.
