iOS 12.1.3

If you own an iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Mac, or an Apple TV, you might be pleased to know that a software update is available for each of these devices. So you may want to hit refresh in settings.

The version numbers for these updates are as follows:

These updates merely just consist of bug fixes that improve the “security, stability and compatibility” of most devices, but even though they don’t come with any big new features, it’s worthwhile to update your device to the latest and greatest.

The most noteworthy thing is probably for HomePod. iOS 12.1.3 fixes issues that could cause HomePod to restart, as well as an issue that causes Siri to stop listening. Otherwise, here’s what’s going on under the hood on iOS devices:

– Fixes an issue in Messages that could impact scrolling through photos in the Details view
– Addresses an issue where photos could have striped artifacts after being sent from the Share Sheet
– Fixes an issue that may cause audio distortion when using external audio input devices on iPad Pro (2018)
– Resolves an issue that could cause certain CarPlay systems to disconnect from iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max
