Following the initial iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 update, Apple has issued multiple updates with bug fixes on board. Well, the company is now sending out another bug fixing update in the form of iOS 13.1.2 for iPhone/iPod Touch models, and iPadOS 13.1.2 for compatible iPads. The company is also sending a minor update to the Apple Watch which should take it to watchOS 6.0.1.
Getting this update on your iPad or iPhone is fairly easy and only requires you to head over to Settings – General – Software Update if the update notification doesn’t pop up automatically. Apple Watch users can check for an update by heading over to the Watch app on the connected iPhone and head over to General – Software Update.
Bear in mind that this is only a bug-fixing update, which means it won’t bring any new features onboard. Speaking of which, Apple mentions that the update fixes a bug on some devices wherein Bluetooth devices would get automatically disconnected or cause the flashlight to not work.
On the other hand, some older iPhones were reportedly facing issues with Touch ID authentication on a few apps. However, the changelog for iOS 13.1.2 or iPadOS 13.1.2 doesn’t mention this bug. As most users are aware, Touch ID authentication is becoming a thing of the past although it featured in an iPhone flagship only three years ago, and still continues to run on multiple iPad models (as well as some MacBooks).
No software update is without its fair share of bugs, but it’s good to see that Apple is pushing out fixes in very quick time.
