Some Known Bugs Fixed

Apple adds a note to the firmware updates so that the customers will be aware of what changes have been made. In the case of the Home Pod, a couple of bugs had been reported.

  • For the iPhones and iPads, the version 12.1.3 is now the stable official one and this has been in the beta version too. Some of the reported bugs have been fixed.
  • One bug has to do with the photos sections where the scrolling of photos in the section was malfunctioning
  • iPad Pro (2018) had flagged the issue in their devices of the audio getting distorted when they tried using an external audio input device; Apple says this has now been fixed
  • CarPlay systems were reported to have an issue where they can’t connect to models like the iPhone XS Max, XS and XR
  • With specific reference to the Apple Watch, the update Watch OS 5.1.3 is more in the nature of a regular firmware update; there is no highlight like the last update where Apple added the ECG feature to the Apple Watch; a recent report had brought out how a man got saved by his Apple Watch warning him of having a heart issue and he rushed to the medical facility and got treated
