iOS 13.1.3 and iPadOS 13.1.3 Released for a Far More Stable Experience on iPhones and iPads
It is no surprise at this point that Apple is really busy in cleaning up the buggy mess that is iOS 13 and iPadOS 13. At the end of last month, the company pushed out iOS 13.1.2 and iPadOS 13.1.2 in order to fix a lot of bugs, especially those pertaining to the camera app. Now, Apple is taking things up a notch with a handful of more fixes.
Here's what is new in iOS 13.1.3 for iPhone users:
And here is what iPadOS users can expect from this update:
It is actually quite surprising that Apple has managed to fix a lot of bugs in this release. For example, if your Apple Watch has been acting up lately, with notifications not being pushed to you, this update fixes that issue. It even fixes an issue where an Apple Watch might fail to pair with your iPhone. There's also a fix for iPhone not ringing or vibrating whenever a call comes through.
On the iPad, the changes are rather subtle and it is fairly obvious that this update is aimed primarily at iPhone users. But still, you get a small host of changes, such as a fix for performance of apps that may use Game Center. Apps falling to download after restoring from an iCloud backup? That has been fixed too in this release.
In order to download iOS 13.1.3 or iPadOS 13.1.3 right now, you can simply take the over the air route which I will recommend any time of the time. It's a simple case of connecting to a WiFi network, then navigating to Settings > General > Software Update. Over here wait for a seconds and just download iOS 13.1.3 or iPadOS 13.1.3 as soon as the update becomes available to you.
