Apple on Thursday released its latest update to iOS 7. According to the company, iOS 7.0.4 contains some “bug fixes and improvements, including a fix for an issue that causes FaceTime calls to fail for some users.”

You should be able to download and install the update by opening your Settings menu and tapping on General > Software Update. This is much smaller than Apple’s last update, which fixed sensor calibration issuesiMessage problems, and added new features such as iCloud keychain. I’ve already downloaded and installed the update on my iPhone 5s, but I wasn’t having problems with FaceTime so I haven’t noticed anything new.

As for the rest of the fixes included in this round, the details say to check out http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1222, but so far Apple hasn’t included any information for iOS 7.0.4. So far, this seems to be a relatively minor update unless you were one of the users effected by the FaceTime bug.

  1. In iPhone 4 some time Service net work going to down that time mobile also hanging.

  2. I don’t understand what you’re trying to say.

    I installed this update on both my iPhone 4 and my iPad mini last night. It went smoothly, and they seem to be working fine.

  3. I experienced the FaceTime “failed calls” bug. I successfully installed the new iOS.
    Now FaceTime activation fails instead of the call itself. Bug shifted to a new location!

  4. Never used FaceTime. Stupidly updated anyway, error occurred during update process and now have to restore to factory settings. Problem is, to do so involves iTunes updating to the latest version, and it is failing mid-way through the update still. So right now I have a lovely paperweight in the form of a 4s

  7. Since installing 7.0.4 my iphone 5′s screen fades to black. This has happened many times. It eventually restarts. Anyone know why or what to do?

  8. This is pretty much just to let people know that the update is out there and what it does, since your phone usually doesn’t tell you an update is available as soon as it comes out.

    As for whether or not it works, I mentioned that I wasn’t having trouble with FaceTime to begin with.

  9. I updated my iPhone 4S today but after viewing a Qtime video the screen is in max zoom, won’t respond to finger pinch to make the screen normal, and I cannot even shut it off because the slide icon is too big to fit in one screen! Agh! Help!

    1. Have you tried double tapping with three fingers? I had the same problem and this helped.

    2. I did have the same problem

      you can fix this with an hotstart pressing the both knobs and holliding them together, one on the right upper side and the one on the dowside of the screen until the i Phone shut down than start again problem solved !
