Following the release of iOS 13.2.2 on November 7, Apple has stopped signing iOS 13.2, which means downgrading to iOS 13.2 is no longer possible.

iOS 13.2 was a major update that brought support for AirPods Pro, added new emojis, and introduced Deep Fusion support for the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro.

Apple routinely stops signing older versions of software updates after new releases come out in order to encourage customers to keep their operating systems up to date.

iOS 13.2.2 is the current public version of iOS. iOS 13.2.2 is a bug fix release that addresses an issue that caused apps running in the background to unexpectedly quit, leading to background apps refreshing more often than normal.

The update also fixes a few other bugs with cellular connectivity, cellular data, Safari, and more.

Developers and public beta testers can also download iOS 13.3, an upcoming update that introduces Communication Limits for Screen Time and a handful of other tweaks and changes.

I think that was just sarcasm, guys. He was comparing it to iOS 11 to emphasize how bad is iOS 13 (for him, at least).
Petty much this. That said, if iOS 13 is just so bad and so horrible - I just want you to consider iOS 11. Is it really truly worse then iOS 11?

Or is it just the same dramatics that we always see?

I have an iPhone XS, and in iOS 13 I’ve had the same experience with multiple versions I have found that I need to back out of the Software Update page and then go right back into a few times for it to even show up. I do this all within a total span of under 30 seconds and the option to update pops up on the second or third try.

Is 13.2.2 safe to upgrade? Or should we just wait until 13.3?
My iPhone and iPad Pro are still on 13.1.3, and they’re working alright. My mini 5 is still on the ultra smooth iOS 12.

We upgraded three iPads and two iPhones (7 and 11 Pro) and it has been fine. An improvement over 13.2, and seems like 13.1.3.

Safe for me. And the phone feels a lot more responsive.
