Apple has rolled out iOS 13.2.2, the next iteration to its all-singing, all-dancing operating system. Previous versions of iOS 13 have essentially played a game of bug whack-a-mole – iOS 13.2.2 is no different.
According to the changelog for the update, the latest software fixes RAM management issues that have plagued iPhone users recently.
Following the release of iOS 13.2, a number of Apple fans took to social media to complain that their smartphones would constantly close apps that were paused in the background, severely limiting their ability to quickly multitask and switch between apps.
Developer Marco Arment tweeted said: “Major new bugs introduced in iOS 13.2. Background downloads often hang forever and never run and apps get killed in the background so aggressively that iOS effectively doesn’t offer multitasking anymore.
“Continuing the iOS 13 pattern of breaking long-held basic functionality.”
Not only should iOS 13.2.2 improve iPhone RAM management, but it also remedies an issue that prevented devices from temporarily losing cellular signal after a phone call has been made.
Here’s iOS 13.2.2’s full changelog:
• Fixes an issue that could cause apps to quit unexpectedly when running in the background
• Resolves an issue where iPhone may temporarily lose mobile signal after a call
• Addresses an issue where mobile data may temporarily not be available
• Fixes an issue that caused replies to S/MIME encrypted email message between Exchange accounts to be unreadable
• Addresses an issue where using the Kerberos single sign-on service in Safari may present an authentication prompt
• Resolves an issue where charging may be interrupted on YubiKey Lightning-powered accessories
iOS 13.2.2 is available to download right now. All iOS 13 compatible devices can obtain by heading to Settings > General > Software Update.
While the latest iOS build certainly introduces a number of handy tweaks, iOS 13.2.2 certainly isn’t substantial as iOS 13.2 that started rolling out last month.
iOS 13.2’s headline feature is by far Apple’s fancy new Deep Fusion camera technology.
In a nutshell, Deep Fusion is designed to kick in to improve photos taken in environments that aren’t dark enough for the iPhone 11’s night mode to kick in, but also not bright enough for Smart HDR to do its thing, either.
Interestingly, your iPhone 11 won’t let you know when Deep Fusion is enabled, it’ll just automatically sharpen up images as long as Apple’s Capture Outside of Frame feature is disabled.
Unfortunately, Deep Fusion is an iPhone 11 exclusive feature. However, older iPhone owners can still dark advantage of iOS 13.2’s 230 new emoji and bug fixes.
