iOS 13.3 & Co: Apple provides new operating system updates


Apple released iOS 13.3 and iPadOS 13.3 on Tuesday night for download. The updates for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch bring improvements and bug fixes, as the manufacturer announced. The new version delivers an already promised in the summer extension of parental control: The screen time function now allows you to set with a special contact list children communication limits. It also regulates who can be contacted via iMessage (News app), FaceTime and mobile phones.

Safari is also suitable for FIDO2 password-free authentication with corresponding security keys in iOS 13.3 – via NFC, Lightning and USB, as Apple explained (see also FIDO2 support of iOS in the short test).

The update is again stubborn problems, including the integrated mail app: Here is an error that could prevent the download of new messages. Also, problems with deleting emails in Gmail accounts were allegedly eliminated. In conjunction with Exchange, according to Apple's release notes, there are no longer "incorrect characters" or duplicate emails. Smaller crop errors and iMessage sharing of screenshots and sharing of voice memos should no longer occur.

Shutting down "Mobile Data" works normally again (previously the switch could be "Falsely Shown Off") and charging on certain Qi charging mats should no longer be "unexpectedly slow". The update also fixes an issue where "dark mode is not turned off when Reverse – Intelligent is enabled". The cursor does not freeze after a long press on the space bar. The stock app now offers links to similar news.

In parallel with iOS 13.3, Apple has released HomePod software 13.3, watchOS 6.1.1 for Apple Watches (Series 1 through 5), and tvOS 13.3 for Apple TV HD and 4K. All updates contain bug fixes. Information on (presumably) eliminated security vulnerabilities are not yet available.
