Apple has released the iOS 13.4.1 and iPadOS 13.4.1 today for the general public. The updates came following the last month’s iOS 13.4 public release and here the focus is more on the bug fixes, security enhancements, and performance improvements.
The beta testing for iOS 13.4.5 started last week with everyone left wondering why the smartphone giant didn’t introduce iOS 13.4.1. However, the update has rolled out now to the iPhones and the iPads. Let’s have a look at release notes:
- Fixes the issue of FaceTime calls not working on devices with iOS 13.4 when they tried to reach devices with iOS 9.3.6 or earlier and OS X El Capitan 10.11.6 or earlier.
- Fixes the bug in the Settings application where selecting Bluetooth through quick actions menu from the Home Screen didn’t work.
As for the iPad users, it:
- Fixes the issue with devices on iPadOS 13.4 that couldn’t make FaceTime calls to devices running on iOS 9.3.6 or earlier and OS X EL Capitan 10.11.6 or earlier.
- Fixes the issue with iPad Pro 12.9” (4th gen) and iPad Pro 11” (2nd gen) where tapping the Flashlight button from the Control Center or Lock Screen won’t turn it on.
- Fixes a bug in the Settings app due to which selecting Bluetooth through quick actions menu from the Home Screen didn’t work.
Even though it is not specified in the latest release notes from Apple, the iOS 13.4.1 could also include a VPN vulnerability fix. If you’re not already aware, there was a certain bug in the iOS 13.3.1 and the later versions that prevented VPNs from traffic encryption. However, it remains unconfirmed if the latest update fixes the said bug or not. We’ll keep you posted if something of the sorts is shared.
