Apple has just introduced a pair of minor operating system updates. AT&T’s versions of the iPhone, as well as the iPad, iPad 2, and the iPod touch are getting iOS 4.3.2, while iOS 4.2.7 is being released for Verizon’s version of the iPhone 4.
According to Apple, the most major change in iOS 4.3.2 is “an issue that occasionally caused blank or frozen video during a FaceTime call.” In addition, they include the latest security updates for this OS. For iPad users, there is a fix for a problem that sometimes prevented them from connecting to 3G cellular-wireless data networks outside of the U.S.
The update for Verizon’s iPhone, iOS 4.2.7, is much more minor, as it only includes a security update. This is likely to displease some users of the iPad 2 — Apple’s official changelog makes no mention of a promised fix for an intermittent issue this recently-released tablet has with connecting to Verizon’s 3G network.
Update Available Now
To install either iOS 4.3.1 or 4.2.7, connect the Apple smartphone or tablet to a Mac or PC running iTunes and then follow the on-screen instructions. The process will take several minutes, and should not be interrupted without the possibility of damaging the device.
