Apple releases iOS 13.4.1 and watchOS 6.2.1 with FaceTime fix

Yesterday, Apple released iOS and iPadOS 13.4.1 and watchOS 6.2.1 with fixes for issues with FaceTime and FaceTime Audio alongside numerous other corrections.

For iPhone and iPad, Apple has resolved an issue with FaceTime users unable to call devices running older versions of iOS or macOS. This fix is also present on watchOS 6.2.1, applying to FaceTime Audio only.

  • 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 Bluetooth from the quick actions menu on the Home screen would fail
  • [iPAD] Addresses an issue on iPad Pro 12.9-inch (4th generation) and iPad Pro 11-inch (2nd generation) where the flashlight may not turn on after tapping the Flashlight button in Control Center or on the Lock screen
  • [iPAD] Addresses a bug with the Settings app where choosing Bluetooth from the quick actions menu on the Home screen would fail

It’s not yet thought that Apple has included a fix for the VPN vulnerability, with numerous sources suggesting nothing has yet changed. We’ll likely see another update in the next few weeks to address this.
