After the glitches and bugs discovered with iOS 12.1.2, Apple has finally released a new update on its iPhone, iPad, and HomePod devices. As The Verge stats, the updated iOS 12.1.3 doesn’t have any new feature but indeed brings a series of bugs fixes that would otherwise cause frustrating abnormalities and behavior of the device.
The iOS 12.1.3 available for iPhone and iPad devices points out a number of bug fixes such as ‘an issue in Messages that could impact scrolling through photos in the Details view”. If you have been using iOS 12.1.2, you might have seen this issue wherein the shared media history for any contact in the ‘Messages’ app show the first row with images while other images are simply blank file previews and seem as if broken images. This creates a messy look and that is what Apple has resorted to fixing with the update.
Another noticeable bug fix is where Apple has fixed a bug causing striped artifacts on images when sent from a share sheet. The mentioned bugs caused a series of problems in the new 2018 iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max. One such issue with the latest iPhones is that when connected to CarPlay, it seldom disconnects itself automatically by itself but hey, this issue is sort too.
Moving on, we have some users complaining about the audio distortion that occurs when their devices are connected to external audio input devices and you are right, Apple ‘lawyered’ this bug by resolving it too.
Cupertino-based Apple also released iOS 12.1.3 for HomePod devices although there are no new features as mentioned by there are quite a few bug fixes. One such instance is when HomePod suffers random restarts or when the Siri is unresponsive to commands but yes, these bugs are fixed too so don’t worry about it.
Well, Apple has managed to pull a massive achievement by attracting more than 75% of its iOS users to the new stable and high-performance iOS 12 which might have hit several downfalls and obstacles but Apple keeps fixing the bugs as soon as possible to keep the iOS 12 and its iterations running without a hurdle. We are still at iOS 12 but hey, there will be an iOS 13 as well which will be more interesting, feature-packed and powerful and guess what, Apple is expected to reveal it in June this year before Google unveils the Android Q that was teased for the first time last week.
