Apple releases iOS 13.3.1 with a bunch of fixes

Today, Apple released the 10th update to iOS 13 since the troubled OS version was made generally available back in September. The new version is iOS 13.3.1, and it comes alongside of macOS 10.15.3, watchOS 6.1.2, and tvOS 13.3.1. It's been in beta testing for almost a month and a half.

As the version number indicates, there are only a bunch of fixes that come with iOS 13.3.1 and iPadOS 13.3.1. Here's the full list:

  • Fixes an issue in Communication Limits that could allow a contact to be added without entering the Screen Time passcode
  • Adds a setting to control the use of location services by the U1 Ultra Wideband chip
  • Addresses an issue that could make a momentary delay before editing a Deep Fusion photo taken on iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro
  • Resolves an issue with Mail that could cause remote images to load even when the "Load Remote Images" setting is disabled
  • Fixes an issue that could cause multiple undo dialogs to appear in Mail
  • Addresses an issue where FaceTime could use the rear facing ultra-wide camera instead of the wide camera
  • Resolved an issue where push notifications could fail to be delivered over Wi-Fi
  • Addresses a CarPlay issue that could cause distorted sound when making phone calls in certain vehicles
  • Introduces support for Indian English Siri voices for HomePod

As usual, there are also a whole bunch of security fixes that come with the update.

As noted earlier, this is the 10th update for iOS 13, as for a time, it seemed like iPhones and iPads were getting weekly updates. This one spent a while in the developer beta program though, and as of right now, there's nothing new in testing.
