Apple iOS 13.2 Beta 4 Version

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.”

iOS 13.1.3 Update Fixes Bluetooth

On Monday, we posted about iOS 13.1.2 update causing major problems with Bluetooth. However, today Apple released a small update to fix not only Bluetooth, but a handful more of other issues including calls, iCloud, and more.

Although this update seems to be going okay for some, many users are still having incoming call problems. One Twitter user tagged Apple Support in their post, writing, “I also Have Calls Droping Issue in My IPhone 8 Plus and the Cellular Data is Completely Low and not Working !” Apple Support replied with, “Thanks for following up. Does this happen with every call? Let’s go to Settings and turn on Airplane Mode, wait five seconds, then turn it off. Does the issue persist? If so, let us know in DM.”

It seems that Apple is having one problem after another with iOS 13. Fingers crossed they can get this all sorted out as quickly as possible.

This update corrects issues for:
  • Camera
  • Flashlight
  • Bluetooth

Should you Update?

Despite the attempted corrections for iOS 13.1.2, users continue to have problems. And the problems keep stacking against Apple. One Twitter user tweeted, “There is big issue with Bluetooth connection. Can’t use Bluetooth hands free. You should have done proper testing around it. Disappointed to see Apple product with such defects”. however, Apple Support had reached out, and is continuing to reply to tweets trying to make amends to those having issues with call drops.

So as far as updating, it may be a better idea to hold off until the next one.

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.

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.
