Apple Releases iOS 13.4.1 for iPhone, That Fixes FaceTime Bug and
On April 7, at 10 a.m., Apple has released iOS 13.4.1 to the iPhone and iPad users. The update comes exactly after two weeks since the release of iOS 13.4 which has 33 new features and changes to compatible iPhones and iPad
According to Apple, the latest iOS 13.4.1 update fixes two bugs:
- Fixes a FaceTime Problem that has been seen on devices running iOS 13.4 could not jump into calls when communication with other older devices running iOS 9.3.6 and earlier versions or with Max OS X 10.11.6 and earlier versions
- Fixes Bluetooth Problem – Apple has fixes a bug where choosing “Bluetooth” from the Settings app’s quick actions menu on the Home Screen fails
It seems that Apple’s strategy for iOS release has deviated from its usual path, as of late. Because Apple released the first beta for iOS 13.4.5 after releasing iOS 13.4, skipping 13.4.1, 13.4.2, 13.4.3, and 13.4.4.
Based on 13.4.1 release, it seems that Apple is saving those minor numbers for some official updates and it’s just trying to remove bugs and security patches rather than introducing some extra features and changes.
You can clearly see the following release notes for iOS 13.4.1 for iPhone and iPad, that there are no published patches for any CVEs, so the update has no security updates.
- Fixes an issue where devices running iPadOS 13.4 could not participate in FaceTime calls with devices running iOS 9.3.6 and earlier or OS X El Capitan 10.11.6 and earlier
- Addresses an issue on iPad Pro 12.9-inch (4th generation) and iPad Pro 11-inch (2nd generation) where the flashlight may not turn on after tapping the Flashlight button in Control Center or on the Lock screen
- Addresses a bug with the Settings app where choosing Bluetooth from the quick actions menu on the Home screen would fail
