Just one week after releasing iOS 13.2, Apple has released a new iOS 13.2.2 software update for iOS and iPadOS devices. It means if you have an eligible iPhone, iPod Touch or an iPad, you should be receiving the update anytime soon. The update is full of fixes for many of the previously known issues and should be installed for improved performance.
The biggest fix included in the update is related to the bug which was resulting in poor RAM management. The issue was basically killing apps unexpectedly when they were running in the background. For example, Safar browser tabs were reloading whenever a user switched back to them after using some other app. The update will ensure that this issue does not appear and users can multi-task the same way they expect from iOS.
Here is the complete changelog detailing all other fixes and improvements included in the update:
- 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 messages between Exchange accounts to be unreadable
- Addresses an issue where using 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 an over the air (OTA) rollout like all other iOS updates from Apple. You should receive a notification once the update becomes available for you but you can also check for the same manually. All you need to do is to visit Settings -> General -> Software Updates. It will show you the update which is less than 100MB in size which means you can even use your mobile internet plan to download the same.
