Apple on Thursday released its promised software update for iPhones and iPad to fix the Group FaceTime bug that went viral last week. The update, like all other iOS updates, is free to download and available now by going to the Settings app followed by “General” and then “Software Update.”

Mac users can go to “Settings” and then “Software Update” to download the free update to their computers.

In a statement on Thursday, Apple thanked customers for their “patience.”

“Today’s software update fixes the security bug in Group FaceTime. We again apologize to our customers and we thank them for their patience,” the company said. “In addition to addressing the bug that was reported, our team conducted a thorough security audit of the FaceTime service and made additional updates to both the FaceTime app and server to improve security,” including fixing a previously unknown issue with Live Photos shared on FaceTime.

After news of the bug went viral on Jan. 28, Apple turned off the feature from its servers and initially promised to release the fix later that week. On Feb. 1, however, the company announced it would be delaying the update until this week.
