Apple has released the latest update for its iOS 7 software as it continues to address issues plaguing the operating system.
The latest update includes fixes for the FaceTime video calling service after Apple acknowledged that some users were experiencing dropped calls. Another fix is for the App Store to ensure any paid-for purchases require a password.
“A signed-in user may be able to complete a transaction without providing a password when prompted. This issue was addressed by additional enforcement of purchase authorisation,” the firm said in a support page detailing the upgrade.
The update is 33.5MB in size and works on iPhone 4 devices and above, iPad 2 and above, and iPod Touch fifth generation and above.
The update is the fourth from Apple for its new iOS 7 operating system, which was released in September. So far users have been split on the new update, with scores of people complaining about the new design and the loss of key functionalities.
Apple moved to address many of these issues in its last update, but many are still complaining. The biggest criticism is that users can't downgrade back to iOS 6. This is especially frustrating for iPhone 4 users who are finding their phones unable to cope with the requirements of the new OS.
Despite this over 200 million devices had upgraded to the new iOS by the end of September. With new iPhone and iPad models flying off the shelves since they were released, no doubt this number is now much higher.
