Apple today released new iOS and iPadOS 13.2.3 for the iPhone and the iPad, updates to the iOS and iPadOS 13.2.2 software that was released last week on November 7.

The new iOS and iPadOS 13.2.3 updates are available on all eligible devices over-the-air in the Settings app. To access the updates, go to Settings > General > Software Update.


iOS and ?iPadOS? 13.2.3 are minor updates focusing on performance improvements and bug fixes for issues that were not able to be addressed in iOS 13.2 and iOS 13.2.2 rather than major outward facing changes.

According to Apple's release notes, the update fixes a bug that could prevent Mail from fetching new messages and it addresses a bug that caused photos, links, and other attachments to not display properly in the Messages details view. The iOS 13.2.3 and iPadOS 13.2.3 release notes are the same.
iOS 13.2.3 includes bug fixes and improvements for your iPhone. This update:
Fixes an issue where system search and search within Mail, Files, and Notes might not work
Addresses an issue where photos, links, and other attachments might not display in the Messages details view
Fixes an issue that could prevent apps from downloading content in the background
Resolves issues that may prevent Mail from fetching new messages, and fail to include and quote original message content in Exchange accounts
iOS 13.2.2, the prior update released last week, addressed an issue that caused apps running in the background on the iPhone and iPad to unexpectedly quit, leading to background apps that refreshed more often than normal.

Apple is also beta testing an iOS 13.3 update that includes Communication Limits for Screen Time and other minor feature tweaks.

I appreciate updates, but the amount of them for ios13 is getting a little ridiculous. The average user doesn't want to keep having their phone update all the time.
The average user likely doesn’t even really know or notice short of their devices letting them know at some point that an update has been installed or perhaps is ready to be installed.

The average user doesn't read Macrumors and they don't care. They get a notification a week or so after the update comes out and just hit "update tonight" and their phone updates while they sleep.

"Apple today released iOS and iPadOS 13.2.2, updates to the iOS 13.2.3 software"???
Um? Shouldn't 13.2.2 come BEFORE 13.2.3? Somebody made a typo...

Not good that so many bug updates get released so frequently. Suggests a problem with Apple's regression testing process that is meant to prevent the escape of software bugs rather than force users to deal find and deal with them. Software updates should add useful features, not add bugs as features.

Anyone have an issue with their AirPod Pros in which they are fully charged, but one of them has an exclamation point next to them and audio only comes out of one? Had to reset them to fix it. Annoying issue.

Edit: Since September 24th they've released 8 updates for iOS13. That's just too many.
Damned if you do, damned if you don't. People complain about bugs with a lack of updates, then people complain with too many.

I hope this *finally* fixes the issue I and others have been experiencing with Messages details/info where only attachments/pics from day one of iOS 13 are shown and nothing before.
13.2.2 fixed it for me. Hope this fixes it for the others! It was driving me nuts! My photos curation was fixed with 13.2.2 also.

I think you're right. I had always assumed that people more or less ignored the update notifications. Mail was such a disaster on my new iPhone 11 Pro Max that I got after trading in my IUP XS Max that I went searching for an XS Max that still had 12.4.1 installed. The number of iPhones I looked at that had been updated to 13.something was surprising to me - a very high percentage.

The average user doesn't check mac rumors daily or check for software updates. The average user has no idea how many updates there has been nor do they even care.
