    Apple will today release iOS 12.1.3, the fifth update to the iOS 12 operating system since its September launch. iOS 12.1.3 is a minor update that follows iOS 12.1.2 (iPhone only), released back in December, and iOS 12.1.1, also released in December.

    The iOS 12.1.3 update will be available on all eligible devices over-the-air in the Settings app. To access the update, go to Settings > General > Software Update. As with all iOS updates, iOS 12.1.3 will be free to download. iPhone owners will be upgrading to iOS 12.1.3 from iOS 12.1.2, while iPad owners will be updating from iOS 12.1.1.

    iOS 12.1.3 is a minor update, and during the beta testing period, we found no major new features. According to Apple's release notes, iOS 12.1.3 includes fixes for multiple bugs affecting iPad Pro, HomePod, CarPlay, and more.

    On HomePod, the update fixes bugs that could cause restarts or that could cause Siri to stop listening. On the iPad Pro, iOS 12.1.3 fixes an issue that could cause audio distortion when using external input devices, and for CarPlay, issues that could cause disconnects from the 2019 iPhones have been addressed. Apple's full release notes:
    The prior update, iOS 12.1.2, included a fix for eSIM activation issues and tweaked some iPhone functionality in China to remove features that infringed on Qualcomm patents so Apple could bypass a sales ban on older iPhones.

    Thankfully I have found iOS 12 to be totally stable on my devices so far. Not much need for bug fixes this time round.

    I have major connection issues with HomePod’s connected to my AppleTV, hopefully this makes it more reliable.

    I don't consider having Siri stop listening a bug. In fact, I wish for it. Then maybe my Homepod will stop saying random things that I didn't ask it ;)

    I hope this fixes the sound quality on the HomePod, it's crying out for some presets or an equaliser.

    When making fun of a typo, try to not make your own grammatical mistake. ;)

    "- Addresses an issue that could cause Siri to stop listening"

    I was wondering why Siri would just drop off instead of the usual "Sorry, I don't understand" or "Sorry, I cannot do that" or "Searching for toothpaste penguin porn on the web..."

    Right?! So ridiculous and sadly I don't think this will fix whatever happened to my photos in Details view, it wiped most of them out but they still show up to tap on, they just never load and say 0kb.

    I am curious if this fixes several of the reported issues with cellular data not working at times. I have personally had this happen when my phone would show several bars and nothing would load via data, almost as if it was just turned off. However a phone right next to me would work just fine. Same network, same location. A minute or so later, it would work.
