IOS 13 was released to iPhone and iPod Touch owners worldwide last week. The new mobile operating system has a host of new features, including a new Dark Mode that changes the bright white elements of the iOS user interface to deep black for easy viewing in low-light conditions.
There's also a new QuickPath keyboard that lets you swipe to type, expanded privacy controls, 2x faster app loading, and smaller App Store app updates – so you can get a little more iPhone storage.
But despite all these improvements, iPhone owners have flagged some issues with the upgrade.
Users have reported app crashes, slow performance switching between in-camera camera modes, and issues with cellular and Bluetooth service.
In fact, it seems that the reliability of the new mobile operating system is so questionable that the US Department of Defense (DOD) has warned all its employees and contractors to avoid updating until Apple corrects the problems.
The email, spotted by the MS Power User technology blog, warns: “DOD Mobility encourages you NOT to update to avoid known bugs from Apple iOS 13. Apple is due to release iOS 13.1 at the end of September 2019 to address the issue. bugs. DMUC users can expect follow-up messages within the next two weeks with updated guidance. ”
Fortunately, as the email states, Apple is aware of concerns about iOS 13 – which come with all iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max devices.
The Cupertino-based company anticipated its iOS 13.1 update by six days. The software, originally scheduled for September 30, was designed to address several of these bug fix complaints, as well as bringing new features that were announced for iOS 13 during the World Wide Developer Conference in June but missed the deadline.
Included in iOS 13.1 are automation shortcuts that allow Siri shortcuts to run automatically whenever certain conditions are met, rather than having to launch the application – or ask Siri – to trigger them manually.
For example, you can automatically start your favorite playlist when you start a new outdoor running workout on Apple Watch. You can also turn off the lights at home at the same time – and turn on again when you finish your outdoor running workout.
You can also share audio from your iPhone with two pairs of PowerBeats Pro. On iOS 13, the feature is reserved for Apple AirPods only.
With the important new features and major fixes, it may be worth delaying the new update – despite the appeal of new visuals like Dark Mode – until Tuesday, September 24, 2019, when iOS 13.1 is scheduled to be released. worldwide. Apple usually releases its new software at 18:00 BST.
If you've already made the leap and noticed some of the issues listed above, update your iPhone as soon as possible tomorrow, which should fix your issues.
