iOS 13.1.3 released to fix several bugs in iOS 13.1.2

iOS 13.1.3 has been released for all iOS 13-compatible iPhones to fix issues from iOS 13.1.2. If you’re on any version of iOS 13, you need this update. If you’re on iOS 12 then stay away until Apple can release an update to iOS 13 which makes it a lot more stable.

Apple states that iOS 13.1.3 fixes the following problems:

  • A problem where the phone would not ring or vibrate if called.
  • An issue that may prevent opening a meeting invite in Mail.
  • A problem with the Health app where data may not display correctly after daylight saving time adjusts.
  • An issue in Voice Memos where recordings may not download when restoring from an iCloud backup.
  • A bug with Apple Watch which may prevent it from pairing successfully.
  • An issue with the Apple Watch where notifications may not be received.
  • A problem of bluetooth disconnecting on certain vehicles.

It also improves launch performance for apps that use Game Centre and improves connection reliability for Bluetooth hearing aids and headsets.

iPadOS 13.1.3 has also been released for iPadOS 13-compatible iPads which should include these changes as well.

Have you noticed a stability increase since updating to iOS 13.1.3 or has it gotten worse? Tell me down in the comments below!

Apple no longer signing iOS versions other than 13.1.2 and 13.1, preventing downgrades

If you’ve heard of how much of a buggy mess iOS 13 is at the moment to the point where Apple have already released 3 minor updates for it after its release, you may have been planning to downgrade to iOS 12.4.1. But now you can’t.

Apple have stopped signing all iOS versions for iOS 13 capable iPhones except iOS 13.1 and 13.1.2. Why they stopped signing iOS 13.1.1 and kept signing 13.1 is unknown.

Also, for the devices that are now stuck on iOS 12.x versions of iOS because Apple deemed that they are incapable of running iOS 13, iOS 12.4.1 has gone unsigned for them too meaning that only the exclusive iOS 12.4.2 remains signed for those devices.

This means that no signed iOS versions that are publicly jailbreakable can be downgraded to anymore. However, with the checkm8 BootROM exploit compatible with all iPhones from the 4S to the X, that shouldn’t last long.

What iOS version are you currently using on your iPhone and how are you getting on with it? Tell me in the comments section!
