Let’s have a look at salient features, version 13.4 brought to iPhone and iPad.

Interesting features of iOS 13.4

1. IPad mouse enhancements

Why was there a need for version 13.4.1 so quickly?

Yes, iOS 13.4 was a stable version, not a beta, however, unfortunately, users were seen reporting bugs, errors, and issues. The company has acted quickly launching this update to patch everything they have done wrong, unfortunately. The truth is that we are used to this type of erroneous update, which reminds us of a lot of the beginnings of iOS 13. We had to weigh numerous bugs that led to the immediate and accelerated development of iOS 13.1.

Although this time it has happened on a smaller scale, it is impossible not to remember these moments. We hope that in the future things will change in the development team and the final iOS version Update News and features will be as stable as possible.

What are the issues fixed with iOS 13.4.1?

In addition to this general performance improvement, the following solutions are also included:

  • Fixes a bug that caused iOS 13.4 devices to be unable to participate in FaceTime calls with iOS 9.3.6 devices or OS X El Capitan.
  • Resolves an error in the Settings app that caused the Bluetooth option in the Quick Actions menu on the Home screen to not work.
  • In iPadOS we have also seen some extra improvements for iOS App Developers, apart from solving performance problems.
  • Fixes an issue on the 4th Generation 12.9 ″ iPad Pro and 2nd Generation 11 ″ iPad Pro causing the flashlight to not turn on after pressing the flashlight button on the control center or locked screen.

In order to perform this installation on both iPhone and iPad, the following steps must be followed:

  1. Enter ‘Settings’ on your device.
  2. Go to General> Software Update.
  3. After consulting the information that appears, you can install the update.
