Warning to Jailbreakers
Just like iOS 7.1.1, jailbreakers should avoid upgrading to iOS 7.1.2 until further notice as you will lose the jailbreak and won’t be able to jailbreak your device.
We’ll update this post after we hear from the Pangu team as to whether the release is safe for jail breakers. See update below.
If you want to update to iOS 7.1.2
If you don’t care about jailbreaking then you can update your device to iOS 7.1.2 wirelessly or “over the air.” Before you update it is recommended that you take a backup of your device using iTunes or iCloud.
After taking your backup, plug in your device to a power source, launch the Settings app, navigate to General > Software Update, and install the update. Detailed instructions to update your iOS device to iOS 7.1.2 available in this post.
iOS 7.1.2’s build number is the same as the build that was seeded to carriers a few days back, so it should be possible to jailbreak it with Pangu. But we’ll wait for Pangu Team to confirm.
iH8sn0w says Pangu will jailbreak iOS 7.1.2 out of the box, so it appears to be safe if you want to jailbreak your device.

Check our post for the instructions on how to jailbreak iOS 7.1.2 using Pangu.
If the iOS 7.1.2 OTA update stops midway during the update process, then a hard reset should fix the issue. Check this post for more details about the freezing issue reported by some users.
