It was rumored last week that Apple might release an incremental iOS 7 firmware update in the near future. Web traffic from devices running iOS 7.0.4 started increasing last week, presumably because the update was being tested by Apple’s employees prior to its release. Today, Apple has released iOS 7.0.4, its an incremental update which does not bring any major features. It only brings a few bug fixes.

The official release notes state that this update, iOS 7.0.4 build 11B554a, comes with “bug fixes and improvements.” It also brings a fix for an issue that caused FaceTime calls to fail for some users. This update is compatible with the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. All smartphones from iPhone 4 right up to iPhone 5s are covered, and so are all tablets from iPad 2 to the recently released iPad Air. iPad mini and the Retina iPad mini are compatible with this update as well, and the fourth generation and fifth generation iPod touch models are included too. Apple releases the updates over-the-air, so they can be downloaded and installed right on the device itself. No need to connect to a computer, simply head to the Settings app and go to the Software Update section. IOS 7.0.4 weighs in at 37.6MB.
