iOS 13.2.3 update – bug fixes and new features

  • by

iOS 13 has had a shaky start, with considerably more bug-fixing updates than usual since their arrival in September.

Now, Apple has released yet another minor release in iOS 13.2.3. This update fixes several annoying issues, including a bug causing apps to unexpectedly quit when running in the background, others that temporarily mess with cellular service and data, and various other small under-the-hood problems.

Though it’s not a huge update on its own – especially if you’ve not encountered any of the issues mentioned above – it’s always worth keeping on top of these things. The barrage of updates means that fixes stack up quick, and if you’ve not updated since iOS 13 first dropped around 8 weeks ago then we’d definitely recommend grabbing this latest update.

It’s not just big-fixes, though – if you’re running a version earlier than iOS 13.2 you’re missing out on Deep Fusion for iPhone 11, support for the new AirPods Pro, and over 70 new emoji. Get with the program!

Apple has simultaneously released an iPadOS 13.2.3 update to address similar issues on its flagship tablet.

How to update

To get iOS or iPadOS 13.2.3, simply follow the instructions in SettingsGeneral > Software Update. Then simply follow the instructions to download and install the update.

These days, you don’t need much storage space free to update – your device will intelligently offload apps while it installs the update and then put them right back again when it’s finished.

It’s generally a good idea to back up your device before a big iOS update, to ensure your data is safe in case anything goes wrong – the easiest way to do this is using iCloud Backup in Settings.
