Apple releases iOS 13.4.1 for the new iPhone SE

On April 7, Apple released iOS 13.4.1 to the public with a few different bug fixes, and now the company has released the same software again — this time for the new iPhone SE.

Apple on Thursday released iOS 13.4.1, which, at first glance, appears to be the same software update the company released earlier this month. Which it is, but it’s not meant for folks who have already installed the update — or even as a slightly modified version with immediate security implications. Instead, the new software is meant for the upcoming launch of the new iPhone SE, which will start being delivered to owners beginning tomorrow, April 24.

Here’s the official changelog:

iOS 13.4.1 includes bug fixes for your ‌‌iPhone‌‌.

  • 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 a Bluetooth from the quick actions menu on the Home screen would fail.

That’s the same changelog from earlier this month, so no surprises here. Which means if you have an iPhone that you’ve already updated to iOS 13.4.1, you won’t see a brand new version of the mobile OS ready to be updated. Your device should tell you you’re already up to date.

So it sounds like the new iPhone SE will be running iOS 13.4 right out of the box, which means those owners should update to the newest version of iOS as soon as they can. A day-one update is never great, but it’s certainly better than not running the latest software, right?
