iOS 7.0.4 released to exterminate FaceTime bug

iOS 7.0.4 released to exterminate FaceTime bug
iOS 7 has a number of bugs and Apple has been working constantly to fix them. A new update to iOS has just been released, iOS 7.0.4, and it brings a couple bug fixes, but it hasn't taken care of some of the bigger bugs that are plaguing Apple users. The update that is out now only really has one bigger fix in it that will help with FaceTime calls. There had been a bug in FaceTime that had caused calls to drop for some users, and now that should be fixed. Apple has also released iOS 6.1.5 for the 4th gen iPod touch, which provides a fix for the same FaceTime issue.

Unfortunately, there are still a number of big bugs that persist in iOS 7.0.4 including bugs that caused the wallpaper to change on the lockscreen, an issue where the Music app shows as a black screen when switching to landscape mode, a bug that causes a reboot when switching tasks via the Control Center, a screen freeze when trying to upload videos to YouTube through the Photos app, and more. 

We're sure Apple is working on these bugs as well, but as yet there are no fixes.

50 millions people have a S3 and the 4.3 update is a sh!t. I cannot wake up the phone,the sound on headphones is 50% down and it is crashing all the time. The phone is also showing me 30 notifications for no reasons and has a lot of lag. How is this possible?

Apparently when Apple does something and it has problems, everyone goes crazy. When others do it it's ok. I'm not saying it's your case, it doesn't look like, but only Apple gets the bad press these days.

Because Apple have stated " iOS is the most advanced operating system in the world". And Apple is known as software company. So wtf with that mini updates?

Well, accordingly to Android users who hate Apple also like to think Android is the most advanced operating system. And I don't have a problem with that, I do think Android is more advanced but it's up to the users need and pr.eferences

Neither companies are acceptable to a point for the bugs they have, but I think Apple gets far more attention because of their "it just works" and "most advanced operating system" comments they've used in marketing. People hold you to the standard you preach.

Apple needs a raid app for the bugs.

I think they need more testing and more time to work things out before release. If you look at how quickly they've shored up a lot of the problems, a few weeks longer before release could have saved them a wealth of headaches and bad press.

That's true, with a massive overhaul like ios7, bugs are to be expected having had less than a year to do it. I think they've done a heckuva job, all things considered. To think ios8 is gonna build on this, that excites me more than benching 405lbs. +1

More colorful icons is a major overhaul?? BWAHAHAHAHA I guess for Apple that is true since they haven't changed since 07

so you believe McDonalds when they tell you their meat is quality meat and that their burgers supposed to look like in the commercials... is called marketing where even .99 cent products use quality ingredients...

Deal with it and keep your stupid analogies out of it.

You are right about that, they put themselves in a tough position by saying that, but this is nitpicking. I know there are a lot of bugs, but 80% of them happen in non normal usage, as if someone is trying to find the bugs. because even if these bugs exist you won't really get affected by them in day-to-day usage.I've used iOS 7 on my iPad since Beta 3 and I found a lot of bugs. Starting from Beta 6, on day-to-day usage, I never found a bug. Even now I don't have bugs, I browse, I play games, read pdfs, write documents, read mail and everything you could do on a tablet and almost 0 bugs. My point being that "it (really) just works" and that this is nitpicking, sort of like an excuse to give bad press.

Probably the most important piece of information that's missing, the amount of people that are affected by all the bugs that's been reported. I might have missed it but I don't remember reading any stats on that. Even though, it's bad publicity for Apple when tech sites continually bring this up.

seems that samsung and apple gives more attention to patents war than fixing their buggy software

Yea no, that's not a viable option, the crappy service you paid for should at least be functional. Otherwise they should just sell the phone without any OS and save us some money.

Expect it to take until v. 7.1.# (probably 7.1.4 if iOS v. 6 experience is predictive) before things settle down in iOS-world.

...Do you mean, to introduce more bugs? so there will be 7.0.5 soon to be released.

Spontaneous wallpaper changing is funny as heck, but the vast majority of these bugs have missed my 5S.

I bet they're there but some are just too situational, and some are minor inconveniences at best.
