Apple has just made iOS 13.3 available for all users. The changes are common with iPadOS 13.3 so there is nothing specific in this new version for the iPad. Here’s everything that has changed with the update.

iOS 13.3: Changes and improvements

With the release of iOS 13.3 and other operating systems, Apple has also fixed some bugs and security errors. A specific included allowed the device to loop AirDrop. The company has solved it by limiting the number of requests that can be made at once.

iOS 13.3 is the new version of Apple’s mobile operating system. The new update now includes an option to Disable Memoji stickers from the iOS keyboard. iOS 13.3 also introduces Time to use management for communications. Now, phone calls, as well as FaceTime and Messaging services can be limited.

The update also has a New Watch app icon, where the digital crown now has a black ring instead of being completed this color. And Apple has moved the menu with options by clicking on a message in iMessage. Before, only the reactions appeared and at the bottom the rest of the buttons.

In the first beta of iOS 13.3, Apple introduced a solution to the bug of RAM. This error caused the apps not to save their status and made them restart every little time. Luckily, this issue has been fixed with this update onboard.

The only thing left to launch is the shared folders on iCloud Drive. Although initially expected to arrive this fall, the company announced that it would be deployed in spring 2020. There is no specific date, but it is expected with iOS 13.4 or iOS 13.5 next year.

iOS 12.4.4 has also been released for older iPhones with security and performance improvements. It is available for iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPad Air, iPad Mini 2/3 and iPod touch of the sixth generation.

tvOS 13.3

Apple has redesigned the Apple TV home screen with tvOS 13.3 to allow full-screen panoramic previews in the upper shelf area. At the same time, the content of Top Shelf for the TV application also changed.

A new configuration in tvOS 13.3 allows you to retrieve the “Next” list on the home screen of your Apple TV. To change the settings, update to tvOS 13.3. Then, go to the Settings application. Select Applications, then select the TV application.

The new configurations are found in the “Home screen” section. You can switch between showing “What to see” or “Next” on the top shelf. Click on the remote control to switch between the options.
