Apple has also released iOS 6.1.5 for the fourth generation iPod touch, which fixes the same FaceTime issue. A new version 6.0.2 of the Apple TV software is also available, although it is unclear what has been changed.

iOS 7.0.4 comes just over three weeks after the release of iOS 7.0.3, which added support for iCloud Keychain and fixed accelerometer issues. iOS 7.0.4 can be downloaded via the software update tool in the settings menu on iOS devices.

Wish I could go back to iOS 1.0. Hated 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7.

I wish we could go back to horses and carts. Can't stand these cars.

6.1.5 for the iPod touch? I've never heard of Apple releasing an update for an older version of iOS. Kudos to them.
Yeah, real kudos to them. I'm really pleased that the 'FaceTime' bug has finally been fixed -- you know, the one everybody's been complaining about -- and yet they still find time to make an incremental update to last year's iOS.

I mean, forgetting the other bugs with iOS 7, such as Messages outright refusing to paste anything when you double-tap, issues with devices respringing if they're using a superior 64-bit chip, and the fact that Siri is utter, utter gash ... yeah, I just couldn't be happier for Apple. Good job, guys.

You're kidding, right?
Why would he be kidding?

Look at how often Android handsets get updated?

We've had 4 since iOS7 release 2 months ago. Averaging 2 per month. Not bad. Constant stream.
