Reported by MacRumors, Apple has released iOS 13.4.1 for the iPhone SE today. This will most likely mean that iPhone SE models reaching customers tomorrow will come installed with iOS 13.4 and need a software update in order to be running that latest version of iOS 13.

iOS 13.4.1 was already released for other iPhone models on April 7, 2020. The update addressed an issue where devices running iOS 13.4 could not make FaceTime calls to older Apple devices limited to either iOS 9.3.6 or OS X El Capitan 10.11.6. It also fixed a bug that prevented users from picking a Bluetooth device from the quick actions menu within Control Center.
