I'm running iOS 8.1.1, and 8.1.2 is out. Going to Settings > General > Software Update, I can see that iOS has acknowledged that there is a version of iOS available which is newer than the one I have installed: (thumbnail; click to enlarge) Isn't this supposed to appear as a badge notification on the Settings app? I'm not getting one: (thumbnail; click to enlarge) I sent into Settings > Notifications to make sure I had badges enabled for the Settings app, but the Settings app is nowhere to be found in the list of apps, leading me to believe that the badge is not optional, but mandatory. What am I missing? Was this feature removed? I Googled "badge icon on settings" and it seems there are many instances of users with a Settings badge icon that won't go away, but none where it fails to appear.
