Apple Aims to Squash Pair of Bugs With Latest iOS Update

Apple on Thursday issued an update designed to fix a pair bugs that have cropped up on the latest models of its iPhone and iPad devices.

According to Apple, the new update (iOS 4.3.2) is designed to address an issue where users encountered a blank or frozen screen when conducting FaceTime chats as well as an issue “that prevented some international users from connecting to 3G networks” on the iPad.

Apple said last week it was investigating an issue that had caused 3G connection problems for some Verizon iPad 2 owners.

The update also aims to close several security holes. Apple also issued security updates on Tuesday for the Mac OS and for the Verizon iPhone, which has yet to reach iOS 4.3.
