Apple on Thursday released an iOS 13.4.1 update for iPhone SE owners, one day before the new lower-cost iPhone is expected to hit shelves. Owners of new iPhone SE devices that arrive on Friday will apparently need to do a day-one update to the device.
The iOS 13.4.1 update was released for other iPhones back on April 7 and addresses an issue that prevented devices running iOS 13.4 from participating in FaceTime calls with devices running iOS 9.3.6 and earlier or OS X El Capitan 10.11.6 and earlier. It also addresses a bug in the Settings app where choosing Bluetooth from the quick actions menu on the Home screen would fail.
The FaceTime bug was discovered shortly after the releases of iOS 13.4 and macOS 10.15.4 and prevented iPhones, iPads, and Macs running these updates from making or receiving FaceTime calls from older Apple devices that aren’t able to upgrade, including the third-generation iPad, iPhone 4S, and other older devices.
Release notes for the update can be seen below:

Pre-orders for the iPhone SE began on April 17. The first deliveries of the new handset will begin tomorrow.
