iPhone and iPad owners, it's time to delve into your smart phone's Settings app -- there's a brand new version of iOS 7 available to download today.

The iOS 7.0.4 update sadly doesn't bring any life-changing new features, but does offer 'bug fixes and improvements', which we suppose are fine too.

Specifically, the latest patch for Apple's revamped iOS platform targets a FaceTime bug that caused calls to fail 'for some users', according to the update description.

Although the update itself is a reasonable 17MB, you'll need at least 765MB of free storage to download it, so get ready to clear out some old apps if your device is already at capacity.

iOS 7 is the biggest change to Apple's mobile operating system in its history, bringing in a flatter, more colourful aesthetic.

While a massive departure from iOS' tradition look, not everyone is happy. Some Apple fans have complained that iOS 7's swooping transitions and floaty icons make them feel seasick.

A recently-added settings tweak does let you turn off these high-flying animations, something owners of older, less-powerful devices might want to consider.

Are you enjoying iOS 7? Or do you yearn for the old days? Let me know your thoughts so far in the comments, or over on our Facebook wall.
