Apple's latest iOS update is released so that iPhone users won't miss a call
Apple pushed out a can of Raid today that exterminates some bugs that were becoming an annoyance to both iPhone and iPad users. Obviously, we weren't being literal as iOS 13.1.3 and iPadOS 13.1.3 were disseminated by the company, not bug spray. Among the issues fixed by the iOS update is one that kept an iPhone from ringing or vibrating during an incoming call. Hmm...that seems like something that an iPhone user might want to fix immediately.

A bug in the Mail app fixed by iOS 13.1.3 prevented those with an iPhone from opening in the app an invitation to a meeting. The update also fixes an issue where data in the Health app wouldn't display correctly after the phone adjusted to Daylight Savings Time. After installing the update you might find that apps launch better through Game Center and Bluetooth based headsets and hearing aids connect more reliably. Also fixed by iOS 13.1.3 are the following problems:

  • Voice Memos and apps fail to download after being restored from iCloud.
  • Apple Watch fails to pair with an iPhone.
  • Notifications fail to appear on Apple Watch.
  • Bluetooth connection abruptly ends in certain vehicles.

The iPadOS 13.1.3 update fixes these issues:

  • Users unable to open a meeting invite in the Mail app.
  • Voice Memos and apps fail to download after being restored from iCloud.
  • Bluetooth connection abruptly ends on certain vehicles.
  • Bluetooth headsets and hearing aids connect more reliably.
You can see if the update is ready to be installed on your iPhone or iPad by going to Settings > General > Software update.

It actually is. I’ve had the latest iPad OS 13 running on my iPad since it’s release with no issues. Just because there are updates for bug fixes does not mean every person who downloads the OS is going to have problems. These could be issues for older devices like a 6S. Also, again, the question is would you rather have the latest OS updates or little to no updates at all? There are a lot of people who have Android devices that are stuck on 8.0. Some people are fine with that and others are not. It’s consumer choice.

If you have had an older device did an update and now have call issues, how's that update celebrating if it breaks a core functionality? Sure I'm always up for updates no doubt, I'm just saying, let's not fool ourselves that iOS as was bug free marvel.

1. WHO is saying that iOS is bug free? You keep making this claim on EVERY iOS article and I have not seen anyone making that claim. 2. These updates are happening rapidly which allows bugs to be fixed as they are being noticed. I’m actually impressed that Apple is pushing updates as fast as they are considering in the past they might have waited a month or more to make an update for these fixes. It should be noted that there have been Android bugs that go unfixed for at least a month.

Alan, a question. Why are the replies targeted to my comment on this thread when originally they were targeted to apple-rules: https://www.phonearena.com/news/Mobile-Safari-data-not-protected_id119640/comments?post=2265402#post_2265402

Why are you even concerned with that? It’s the comments section dude, what relevance does it have on your life. I’ve been called every name in the book, racist names and everything else. Don’t sweat it man.

I rarely comment here so comment section doesn't have any relevance to my life. It's just that records on database don't just change by itself the id from a previous one, to another one that you have deleted ( which I guess is the case here). I just want a reasonable explanation. Or maybe just helping PA solve some bugs in the comment section ;)

I just looked and those comments are not under yours. They are in reply to Apple rulz who was the second to comment on that story. Maybe it’s how the comment section looks on your device. But on my device it does not appear as you have stated.

I just checked and you are right if "show moderated comments" is selected. I had that in "default". Sorry , my mistake, although it would be better if all the thread of the moderated comment is hidden since otherwise it doesn't make sense in default mode and adds confusion

Well you know, you could just make it so it works the first time. But hey, "it just works".

Still no call pop up window. Lame

I like the call pop up window, but I always end up flicking it away, cause it blocks the top part of the content, and one you open it full screen your stuck with it anyway.

Still my biggest gripe with iOS. I can't say I'm really missing anything from my Note 9 other than the s-pen but I rarely used it. Still adjusting to not having buttons for going back, home and recent apps but minor quibbles overall that will subside with time. The camera and video capabilities are worth it IMO.

I have iOS 13.0 and had no issues whatsoever. I guess I'm lucky.
