Apple Rolls out iOS 13.2.2 and iPadOS 13.2.2 Containing Fix for Unusual Background App Activity

If you updated to the latest version of iOS recently, you are probably aware of the background app hyperactivity which force closed apps when you switched between two or more of them. Well, as it turns out, Apple was quickly onto this issue and has now started sending out updates containing the fix. The update will change the software version to iOS 13.2.2 on your iPhones and iPod Touch while you will see this as iPadOS 13.2.2 on your iPad, a change that came into effect a few months ago.

It is worth pointing out that this update comes just around 10 days after Apple released iOS 13.2. So it’s clear that the company is somewhat rushing its updates. However, customers should be fairly relieved to know that any bug found is patched fairly quickly, and this here is a perfectly good example of this.

After sending iOS 13.2 to its customers, it was quickly revealed that this update bricked Apple’s HomePod smart speakers. Subsequently, we saw the iOS 13.2.1 update, which brought along the aforementioned background app-killing bug, which has now been fixed as well.

The update started rolling out in stages but should be appearing on all iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 running devices right away. If you’re not seeing the update notification yet, be sure to head over to the settings in order to pull the update manually. Alternatively, if you’ve already received the update, be sure to let us know about what’s new. But more importantly, has the background app activity improved after the update?
