Apple rolls out another iOS 13 update, fixes critical issuesLast updated on Oct 01, 2019, 11:35 am
Days after releasing iOS 13 and 13.1, Apple has released another incremental update for the platform - iOS 13.1.2.
The update doesn't come with any new features but fixes a number of issues, including those related to the iPhone camera, flashlight, iCloud backup, shortcuts, and Bluetooth.
Here's all about the issues and the update fixing it.
Issues with current iOS 13 builds
As per the details shared by Apple, the older versions of iOS 13 had bugs that kept the camera and flashlight of the iPhone from working in some cases.
There were also issues that disconnected the Bluetooth with some devices, prevented shortcuts from running via HomePod, and showed the iCloud backup progress bar even after the backup had been completed successfully.
Fixes coming with iOS 13.1.2
All the aforementioned issues can be tackled by simply installing the latest iOS 13.1.2 release.
To recall, these are the leftovers that Apple missed fixing with iOS 13.1.
That update had patched security issues related to third-party keyboards as well as glitches that drained the battery and prevented the iPhone from restoring backups, detecting Siri requests.
How to download the latest iOS update?
To install the latest iOS update, plug your device to the charger, head over to the settings of your device and tap on General.
Next, tap on Software Update and hit the download and install.
The update will then be downloaded, post which you will get the option to install it immediately, later at midnight, or get reminded about it later.
Apple has also updated watchOS
That said, you should note that this isn't the only update from the Cupertino giant.
The company has already released iPadOS, tvOS, and an incremental watchOS update for the Apple Watch.
This release, dubbed watchOS 6.0.1, comes with notable security and performance improvements as well as fixes issues with Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse watch faces.
