Should I update for iOS 12.1.3 : problems and bugs resolved

iOS 12.1.3 has been released, but who should update? A balance of the fixed bugs and the problems encountered on the iPhone.

Apple released iOS version 12.1.3, and the temptation to update could be strong. But be careful, because if iOS 12.1.2 was a disaster, with iOS 12.1.3 some users have said that the situation has even worsened. This means that it may be convenient to wait before downloading the update.

First of all it is worth remembering that iOS 12.1.3 does not bring new features, but includes bug fixes for iPhone and iPad. The problems that go to solve ranging from that which prevented to scroll through the photos in the Message Details, to the annoying bug that caused the disconnection of some CarPlay systems from iPhone XS, XS Max and XR, passing the distortion of the audio on the iPad Pro if you used external audio input devices, now deleted.

Immediately after the release, however, on the net there were negative opinions of the new version of the operating system, especially in the United States where iOS 12.1.3 caused data connection problems, prompting one of the major telephone operators to issue a press release on the matter.

Who can download iOS 12.1.3?

iOS 12.1.3 is available for all devices compatible with iOS 12: iPhone 5S or later, iPad mini 2 or later and iPod Touch of the 6th generation or later. Compatible devices will be asked to perform the update, but you can also activate it manually by going to Settings> General> Software Update. Beta testers already running the next iOS 12.2 must unregister the device to the Beta Program for iOS 12.1.3 to appear.

The new update weighs more than 279 MB, a significant size for a version that does not offer new features and omits the most important correction.
