iOS 13 Update Bugs and Security Concerns

With the newly released iOS 13, Apple users were excited to try out some of the fun, innovative features included in this update. iOS 13 optimized Face ID and app download sizes and introduced Dark Mode. However, with its launch came with security and privacy bugs.

App crashes, camera issues and deny location access settings are just a few of the bugs that are causing a ruckus on the iPhone. According to Forbes, they write, “Specifically, it seems iOS 13 isn’t respecting the location privacy settings for certain apps. Fast Company posted a video, showing how the OS would not accept a “Never” access location command, instead changing it back to “Ask Next Time.”

It is rumored that Apple will be releasing their iOS 13.1 update tomorrow, September 24th, so if you are looking to update your iPhone, then that may be the time to do it. This patch should fix the bugs accordingly, as they understand the seriousness of the issues at hand.

If you’re an iPhone user like myself, you might be just as pumped for this improved software to be released. With updates come new features, and I’m a fan of new features on my phone. iOS 13 was announced at the WWDC earlier this month and this operating system includes a plethora of updates and optimizations, such as:

  • new dark mode
  • new Siri voice
  • new map experiences
  • new tools for photo editing
  • new sign-in
  • faster performance (up to 30% faster)
  • quick path typing
  • and more!

The Apple press shared a statement of the availability of the new operating system update being released:

“A public beta program will be available to iOS users next month at beta.apple.com. New software features will be available this fall as a free software update for iPhone 6s and later, and will be available with iPadOS for iPad Air 2 and later, all iPad Pro models, iPad 5th generation and later, and iPad mini 4 and later. iPadOS also introduces new capabilities and intuitive features that take advantage of the unique characteristics of iPad.”

So while it says the update will come out in the fall, many are speculating that the release will come in between September 9th-17th. Remember with any beta program comes possible risks as it may not allow your phone to function properly because of the errors in the testing. So if you become part of the beta testing for the iOS 13, make sure you back up your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch and your Mac using Time Machine beforehand. Beta testing program is available for free, so check it out if interested.
