Install the New IOS 13 and Apple’s Catalina Updates Now

Apple today released new updates for iOS 13 and macOS Catalina. If you don’t like bugs or other issues that prevent you from doing what you are trying to do – for example, complete your macOS Catalina installation without crashing – you need to update your iPhone and / or Mac. as soon as possible.

According to Apple, here’s what the company has fixed in the latest iOS release (now 13.1.3):

  • Addresses an issue that could prevent the device from ringing or vibrating on an incoming call.
  • Addresses an issue that may prevent the meeting request from opening in mail.
  • Addresses an issue that may cause data in the Health app to display incorrectly after daylight saving time.
  • Addressed issue where voice memo recordings may not load after restoring from an iCloud backup.
  • Addresses an issue that could cause apps to fail to load when restoring from an iCloud backup.
  • Addresses an issue that could prevent Apple Watch from pairing successfully.
  • Addresses an issue where notifications may not be received on Apple Watch.
  • Addresses an issue that could cause Bluetooth to turn off on certain vehicles.
  • Improves the reliability of the connection between hearing aids and Bluetooth headsets.
  • Addressing the launch performance of applications using Game Center.

In other words, it is strictly a “bug fix” fix; don’t expect to see any new features when you launch an update (via Settings> General> Software Update ).

As far as macOS Catalina is concerned, the list of bug fixes is much shorter, but I would say even more important. While Apple’s website for macOS Catalina updates is n’t working at the time of this writing, here’s what 9to5Mac reports Apple is fixing:

  • Improves the reliability of installing macOS Catalina on Macs with limited disk space.
  • Addressed issue where the Installation Assistant is unable to complete some installations.
  • Addresses an issue that prevents you from accepting the iCloud Terms of Service when you sign in with multiple iCloud accounts.
  • Improves the reliability of Game Center data saving when playing Apple Arcade games offline.

Of course, if you’ve already successfully installed the Catalina macOS update, you probably don’t care that much about the problems of Apple’s fixing attitude to process settings, which was finicky . That said, at least you hopefully won’t run into any problems if you have to reinstall the operating system for any reason.

To install the update for macOS Catalina, simply click the Apple logo in the upper left corner, open System Preferences, and click Software Update.
