The launch coincides with the arrival of the systems of other devices from the apple company. MacOS 10.14.6, tvOS 12.4 and watchOS 5.3 were also released to the public on Monday. For Mac and Apple TV users, there are no major changes apparent beyond the security updates that often accompany versions like this. Users of the company’s smartwatch, however, may notice a fix for the vulnerability that allowed third parties to spy on conversations on the Walkie Tokie app, which was disabled less than two weeks ago due to the breach.
To download the latest version of the Apple system, users must go to Settings> General> Software Update. Because this is a major update, it may take several minutes to download, depending on the speed of the connection. It is recommended to have more than half of the battery charged and be connected to a Wi-Fi network.
The new version comes just over two months after the release of iOS 12.3. In this update, the main novelty was the TV app, which brings together streaming services such as Globoplay, Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, in addition to being a preparation for the arrival of Apple TV +, a platform with the company’s own productions, scheduled for September.
When will iOS 13 be available?
The next version of iOS is scheduled for official release in September, but is already in the testing phase. Users who wish to download it ahead of time can register for the beta software program to experience features such as dark mode and improvements to privacy settings.
