Mark Gurman, a Bloomberg author shared a tweet on October 23rd, sharing information about the beta update available in iOS. Though there isn’t an exact date, this one will be released to the public by the end of October.
This particular version should only be used by those who have devices that can support the beta development. The iOS 13.2 fixes bugs, includes features like new emojis, and gives some quality improvement. 9to5Mac shared:
“Aside for new emoji, iOS 13.2 also includes the Announce Messages with Siri feature that was originally meant for iOS 13.
With AirPods or other H1-enabled Beats headphones in your ears, you will be able to listen and respond to incoming text messages. Siri transcribes the message so you can hear the text without looking at your phone or watch. You can then ignore or immediately reply without having to say “Hey, Siri.”

The Microsoft Edge user interface, or UI is currently in the testing phase with the latest beta build. This will upgrade the hub menu to enhance a more modern, curved look, along with a better access to what’s needed like history, favorites, etc.
According to Android Central, “The new hub menu is present where the old Continue on PC button used to be, and opens up a grid of icons that gives the user access to functions such as opening a new tab, read aloud, add to favorites, and continue on PC. The menu is also customizable, allowing you to add or remove whichever functions you wish.”
As of now, Microsoft Edge UI is only available to a handful of beta testers. This will soon change to every beta tester, then to the public. And Android only has the go on it. iOS is still waiting, but I’m sure it won’t be long.

Just a few weeks left until the new Windows 10 November update comes out, and now the Windows Insiders are testing it in the Fast Ring. Update 20H1 build 19008 remedies were shared on the Windows Insiders Blog. These pre-released builds sometimes contains bugs and Insiders can submit feedback.
Brandon LeBlanc, Senior Program Manager of the Windows Insiders program shared a bulletined list of fixes and known issues:
“General changes, improvements, and fixes for PC
For Insiders that were experiencing their PCs getting stuck on restart and shutdown on Builds 18999-19002: A fix for this was included with the update to Build 19002.1002, but in case you didn’t see it, including a note here too. If you didn’t install Build 19002.1002, you may need to use the workaround in order to upgrade to this build.
We fixed an issue where, when optional updates were available, Insiders with the Settings header might see the Windows Update indicator in a warning state, although the main page of Windows Update Settings showed that everything is up to date.
We fixed an issue resulting in sometimes not being able to bring Settings back up after minimizing the window.
We’ve done some work to improve the launch speed of the taskbar jump lists.
We fixed an issue resulting in the Program Compatibility Assistant popping up for some Insiders
We fixed an issue resulting in Windows Hello unexpectedly showing an error message periodically saying “Can’t turn camera on” on recent builds.
We cleaned up some UI in the Mouse pointer settings in Ease of Access.
We fixed a bug in Narrator where Narrator was not reading link text in the proper language in the Chrome Browser.
BattlEye and Microsoft have found incompatibility issues due to changes in the operating system between some Insider Preview builds and certain versions of BattlEye anti-cheat software. To safeguard Insiders who might have these versions installed on their PC, we have applied a compatibility hold on these devices from being offered affected builds of Windows Insider Preview. See this article for details.
We’re investigating an issue where initiating “Reset this PC” with the cloud download option isn’t working on this build or the previous one when started from Windows RE.
We’ve heard that Settings still isn’t available outside of launching via the URI (ms-settings:) for some Insiders and are investigating.
When using dark theme, the hardware keyboard text prediction candidate window is unreadable due to black text on a dark grey background.
Bluetooth devices may not reconnect as expected after closing the device lid for certain devices. We’re working on a fix, but in the meantime, you can toggle Bluetooth off and back on in the Settings app or reboot the device and that should resolve the issue.
Some Insiders are still reporting that after successfully updating to a new build, the Windows Update Settings page may show the same build needs to install. You can verify the build was successfully installed by checking the build number in the corner of the screen or going to Win + R, typing winver, and confirming the build number. We’re investigating this issue.
Some Insiders are still reporting that when viewing Optional drivers in the new section on the Windows Update page, there may be older drivers showing as available for download. If accepted, they will attempt to install and fail to do so. We’re investigating this issue.”

When computer software issues arise, such as the latest OS debacle KB4520062 breaking the Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection, some users have explained uninstalling or using system restore to help alleviate the problem. Andre Da Costa, an article author, posted an easy and effective way on how to do a system restore on your Windows 10 OS on the Microsoft Community Board.
“Easy Guides are intended to make it easy for users to follow instructions regarding basic tasks in Windows 10,” He states. “Guides are a single info-graphic that you can follow from beginning to end.”
Here’s Andre’s simple breakdown on how to format and construct a System Restore:
Press Windows key + R
Click the: ‘system protection’ link
Select the ‘Turn on system protection’ radio box.
Use the slider to adjust the amount of space you want to allocate to system restore
Click Apply then OK
Enter a name for your system restore point then click ‘Create’
Wait while your first system restore point is created.
Click ‘Close’ then ‘OK’
He also shares how to complete a system restore by opening up the rstrui.exe program, which opens up the settings. Just choose the restore point and confirm.
Remember that System Restore does require a restart of your computer, so Microsoft urges you to save any necessary open files and close out of any programs you have on your desktop.

When you lay awake at night, one thing we habitually snag to avoid boredom are our devices. But this in turn ruins our sleep habit with the blue light. Windows 10 has a practical feature, called Night Light, which removes blue light and displays a warmer screen.
To enable Night Light:
turn on the switch under Night Light
You can use the Night light settings, which display options of the strength of Night Light, along with scheduling. Window Support adds that, “Night light isn’t available if your device uses certain drivers (DisplayLink or Basic Display).”

KB4520062 (OS Build 17763.832) was available to install on Tuesday, and added bug fixes and improvements. But the Windows Support blog post pertaining to the update shared a security concern with it on Thursday. This certain issue seems to only affect businesses who heavily rely on the Microsoft Defender ATP.
They stated, “After installing this update, the Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) service might stop running and might fail to send reporting data. You might also receive a 0xc0000409 error in Event Viewer in MsSense.exe. At this time, we suggest that devices in an affected environment do not install this update.We are working on a resolution and estimate a solution will be available in mid-November 2019.”
This certain issue seems to only affect businesses who heavily rely on the Microsoft Defender ATP. Windows Support is quick to encourage users that before installing updates, they install the latest servicing stack update for their OS beforehand. The SSU minimizes possible update issues, while enhancing “the reliability of the update process”.
