Apple iOS 12.1.3 released

Apple has released iOS 12.1.3 for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. The release is minor in nature as the version number would indicate, focussing on under-the-hood improvements, bug fixes, and security patches designed to streamline the experience.

The improvements in this release were initially meant to be a part of iOS 12.1.1 and 12.1.2 but had to be pushed back to satisfy the demands made by a Chinese court over the alleged infringement of Qualcomm Inc. patents.

The official changelog from Apple reads as follows:

This update:
  • Fixes an issue in Messages that could impact scrolling through photos in the Details view
  • Addresses an issue where photos could have striped artifacts after being sent from the Share Sheet
  • Fixes an issue that may cause audio distortion when using external audio input devices on iPad Pro (2018)
  • Resolves an issue that could cause certain CarPlay systems to disconnect from iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max
This release also includes bug fixes for HomePod. This update:
  • Fixes an issue that could cause HomePod to restart
  • Addresses an issue that could cause Siri to stop listening

The update will be pushed to all compatible iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch devices OTA (over-the-air) and you will receive an update notification when it is available for your device. You could also manually update on your device by heading to Settings > General > Software Update.

Advanced users who prefer a clean installation of iOS could consider downloading the IPSW files and installing the update on their device using iTunes.
