Apple releases iOS 4.3.2; iOS 4.2.7 for Verizon iPhone

iOSupdate4.3.2

Apple has just released the latest update for iOS devices, firmware 4.3.2. Apple also included a separate update for Verizon iPhone users, iOS 4.2.7. The latest update addresses issues with the iPad 2 FaceTime application crashing during a video call, international users from connecting to 3G networks and security patch.

Firmware 4.3.2 will patch the latest security vulnerability that was exploited by iPhone hackers to create a jailbreak for all iOS devices except the iPad 2. Users who upgrade to iOS 4.3.2 on a jailbroken device will lose their jailbreak, at least until another vulnerability is discovered.

- Fixes an issue that occasionally caused blank or frozen video during a FaceTime call
- Fixes an issue that prevented some international users from connecting to 3G networks on iPad Wi-Fi + 3G
- Contains the latest security updates

The latest firmware addresses an issue where iPad 2 users would experience a blank or frozen screen while using the FaceTime application with another iDevice. The other patch corrects an issue with international users from connecting to 3G networks on the iPad WiFi+3G models.

Products compatible with this software update:
• iPhone 4 (GSM model)
• iPhone 3GS
• iPad 2
• iPad
• iPod touch (4th generation)
• iPod touch (3rd generation)

I'm amazed to read that there are ANY issues with anything coming from Apple, I thought they were perfect from the onset and would never have something as mundane as "battery problems" or "fragmentation" or "upgrade mess". Are you sure you people have genuine Apple devices? </sarcasm>

Not worth the upgrade for me.
#1 I have AT&T 3G and not VZ.
#2 From what I read...still lagging and battery still sucks!
#3 I have iPad1 without front camera(or back camera), so facetime is not an issue for me.
#4 Apple, you F$#!% lazy piece of A. Stop pumping out beta OS.
Can't wait for Windows 7/8 tablet.

Why do apple keep releasing beta versions as final versions? Are they trying to make the public beta testers?

The major updates the release early to developers weeks in advance, and usually got through a few builds before going GM - so no, they don't use the public as beta testers, they use the develoeprs..

I wonder if they'll ever get around to incremental updates rather than the 400+mb blocks so frequently.

No, They won't. Each update is like a full clean install.

Clearly. The point is if they'll ever learn what an incremental update is.

so they are more worried about addressing jailbreaking that fixing more of the main issues. Dont they know that the new version will be jailbroken soon and all their efforts will be for nothing?

funny

This is just a minor update to fix bugs, DNS issues, fix document viewer, FaceTime issues, vulnerabilities and some battery life woes on all iOS devices.

Fixes for battery life woes? Got anything to back that up? Everyone else here seems to think 4.3.2 contains no battery related fixes. Which is it?

I believe he was just making a joke in referring to it being a "minor" update.

Fragmentation is continuing.

Although they're slightly different builds and some features are missing from the Verizon phones all the Apps made for iOS work on all platforms, which is more than can be said for Android

Scaremongering much? Take a game like Angry Birds, it would work on pretty much any Android device these days no questions asked, the fragmentation issue is really blown out of proportion.

I'm sure there are many apps that work across all Android phones. But then there are also speed/battery improvements as well as newer API that developers could use but don't use because they want their app to work across all Android devices.

What features are missing from Verizon phones? I have one and I had all of the features that 4.3 brought before AT&T users had them such as screen orientation lock and wireless hotspot. Not sure what I'm missing here.

The improved javascript engine in Safari is the one that jumps to mind, I think there might have been a few other bits and bobs as well

Wonder if they fixed the battery drain prob

Battery life issues were fixed on my wife's 3gs with 4.3.1, sounds like an app issue.

There's no need for that language, even hidden behind ****. It's obvious what the word is.

No need for that tone just because you didn't like a plausible theory. I would suggest logging off till you learn to be respectful to others.

He has an iPhone 4. May be something different.

Nope the battery drain and lag is still there.

Must not effect all devices because my iPhone 4's battery life seems to be the same as it was with 4.0 and 4.1.

Yup. Me too but I'm on a VZW iPhone so not sure if that means anything as far as the battery problem is concerned. Obviously the iOS is different (from ATT) so maybe that's why I'm not having the problem.

I feel ya buddy. Express your feelings. I'll back you up.

This must be the first time Apple is releasing iOS updates so frequently.
iOS 4.3, 4.3.1 & 4.3.2 were all released within 2 months

And they still haven't fixed one of the nmost obvious bugs

There were actually quite frequent in the early days as well. I remember the 2.x ones being frequent because iOS 2 was quite buggy

No point in upgrading to this for me. I never use FaceTime, and I've got an iPod touch, so the other issue doesn't affect me. And apparently, the only "security issue" patched is the one that allowed for jailbreaking.
