Apple releases iOS and iPadOS 13.2.3 to exterminate some bugs
Apple disseminated today iOS 13.2.3 and iPadOS 13.2.3 with both updates pushed out to exterminate several bugs that have popped up in iOS 13. The last update was released in the first week of this month after iPhone users complained of a memory management issue that closed apps in the background. This forced users to reopen an app they had left open in the background to open another app. 

Today's update to iOS 13.2.3 fixes an issue that prevented system search and search inside apps like Mail, Files, and Notes from working. It also eliminates an issue that kept photos, links, and other attachments from appearing in the Messages detail view. The update removes a bug that stopped apps from downloading content in the background and stopped new messages from loading in Mail. After the update is installed, Mail will once again be able to quote messages from Exchange accounts. To install the update, go to Settings > General > Software update. Apple iPad users can do the same thing to install iPadOS 13.2.3, which has the same changelist.


If you're wondering about iOS and iPadOS 13.3, Apple is on the second beta version of the update which will bring a new icon for the Apple Watch app. The digital crown on the icon will go from black to gray. Additionally, those who want to get rid of Animoji and Memoji from appearing on the Emoji keyboard will be able to do so by going to Settings > General > Keyboard. Screen Time users will be able to limit their children's phone calls, messages, and FaceTime usage depending on who the person on the other side of the connection is. And lastly, the Safari browser on both the iPhone and iPad will be able to support security keys based on the FIDO2 security system that works with USB and Lightning ports and NFC.

Loving the speed of these updates, an absolute far cry from what I experienced on other platforms where you were not even sure if you’ll get an update again. Keep me’ coming Apple :D

It's sad that they need to do all of these updates in the first place. By the time iOS 13 is stable, iOS 14 will be out.

I like GSMArena's take on iOS 13: "This is the latest update in a long string of updates for the operating system, which saw a less than spectacular launch last month and has since required constant patching to work normally." "The good thing is that Apple seems to be aware of them and working on fixing them. The bad thing is that they still decided to ship this trainwreck last month on their new flagship device and have spent every day since fixing it." Win 10 runs on thousands of configurations, whereas iOS has just a few phones/tablets to run on. Apple has tighter control of their hardware and software, and having to constantly patch their OS is embarrassing.

Updates are welcome but it's better if Apple strickly controls their quality of releases.

Dang Apple, I can't even keep up with these fixes for patches, and patches for fixes .X updates. Just fix iOS 13 for crying out loud, and be done with it. While you're at it, throw in split view, pencil support, multi item clipboard, and PIP.

Is this your Christmas list? Good luck! Seriously though, how many updates does it take to get this to "just work"?

I am enjoying the excuses. If any other product needed this much fixing, people wouldn't buy it.
