Apple delivering iOS 7.0.4 to users now

The routine is one we know well by now: Apple releases a major new iOS update alongside the launch of a new device, Apple users start upgrading en masse, and in the weeks that follow we start learning about new bugs and watch Apple fix them. That meant the arrival of iOS 7.0.1 and 7.0.2 back in September, followed by iOS 7.0.3 late last month. Apple’s not quite done yet, and today we see it make with iOS 7.0.4, delivering its own assortment of bugfixes.

All told, it sounds like a pretty minor update – in fact, while we’re sure there must be other little tweaks that aren’t getting much attention, the only bugfix we’re hearing about in any detail is one that aims to correct a problem with FaceTime connections. Still, better safe than sorry, so unless you’re intentionally keeping your iOS device running earlier software in the hopes that it might be more compatible with some future jailbreak release, we can’t see a reason to shy away from 7.0.4.

Be on the lookout for the updating coming to your iPhone 4 or better, iPad 3 or newer, and either iPad mini.

Update: If you’re already on at least some iOS 7 version, word is that installing 7.0.4 won’t add any new jailbreak-blocking fixes.
