iOS 7.0.4 and iOS 6.1.5 Fix FaceTime Calls

by Josh Centers

Apple has released iOS 7.0.4 [1] to fix an issue that caused FaceTime calls to fail for some users, as well as the usual, unspecified “bug fixes and improvements.” On the security side [2], Apple also beefed up the enforcement of purchase authorization, since it was possible for a signed-in user to complete a transaction without providing a password when prompted. You can download the 17 MB update in Settings > General > Software Update.

Interestingly, Apple has also updated iOS 6, which you can no longer install (see “Lion and Mountain Lion Still Available, Unlike iOS 6 [4],” 25 October 2013), to iOS 6.1.5 [5] to address FaceTime issues. However, iOS 6.1.5 is specific to the fourth-generation iPod touch — no other iOS 6 devices will be offered the update.
