Apple has just released an update to the iOS software, bringing it to version 4.3.2.
Update: The Verizon iPhone 4 got it’s own edition of the update, bringing it to iOS 4.2.7
You can download the iOS 4.3.2 firmware directly from Apple using the following links. Scroll down for the Verizon iPhone 4 download link.
- iPhone 3GS
- iPhone 4 (GSM)
- iPad 2 (also iPad 2,2 and iPad 2,3)
- iPod touch 3rd gen
- iPod touch 4th gen
The software fixes several bugs including an issue that could cause blank or frozen video during FaceTime calls and a bug that prevented some international users from connecting to 3G networks on the Pad.
Strangely it seems to point to the iPad Wi-Fi as also being affected by this bug although it does not contain a 3G radio. It’s possible that the issue prevented some users from tethering their iPads to devices running on 3G networks like the iPhone 4.
They have also included the security updates which are detailed at Apples site here. These security updates seem to be aimed at, among other things, patching the vulnerability that allowed for the untethered Jailbreak of iPhone iOS 4.3.1 as noted by Musclenerd, a member of the prominent hacking group iPhone Dev Team.
Update: The iOS 4.2.7 software for Verizon iPhone 4’s only can be downloaded below.
Apparently the Verizon iOS 4.2.7 update contains the same security fixes but doesn’t seem to have any updates related to the Facetime issue.
The update is available now to all iDevice users, simply connect your device to iTunes and hit the update button.
