Apple on Tuesday released iOS 13.4.1 and iPadOS 13.4.1, minor updates that come just two weeks following the release of version 13.4 of both operating systems.
The update is available on all compatible devices over-the-air via the Settings app. To access the update, go to “Settings” -> “General” -> “Software Update.”
The updates fix 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.
Full release notes for the iOS 13.4.1 update are below:
iOS 13.4.1 includes bug fixes for your iPhone.
– Fixes an issue where devices running iOS 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 a bug with the Settings app where choosing a Bluetooth from the quick actions menu on the Home screen would fail.
The iPadOS 13.4.1 update also fixes the same two issues and also fixes a third bug that could cause the flashlight not to turn on on the new 11 and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models after the Flashlight button in Control Center or the Lock screen is tapped.
Although Apple should be transitioning its brainpower over to working on iOS 14, there will be at least one more iOS 13-based update, as Apple is currently beta testing iOS 13.4.5.
