In a totally unprecedented way, Apple has just released the iOS 13.1.2 it’s the iPadOS 3.1.2 for all users of compatible devices – just three days after 13.1.1. The build went from 17A854 to 17A860 (or 17A861, in the case of iPhones X, XS and XS Max – you’ll understand).
Apple clearly was not satisfied with the state in which iOS 13 was released and, instead of leaving users suffering with bugs for weeks and then releasing a major update with fixes, it is preferring to do this little by little – even taking advantage of the fact it’s very simple to apply such an update on iOS.
Among the fixes brought by iOS 13.1.2, are one related to the iCloud backup progress bar, a bug that caused the Camera app to freeze, one that prevented the flashlight from activating, one that caused the loss of screen calibration data , one that prevented Shortcuts from running on HomePod and one that made Bluetooth disconnect from certain vehicles.

Apple today also released the watchOS 6.0.1 (build 17R605 for Series 4, 17R604 for Series 5), bringing corrections to the Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse dials (which no longer speak the time), a problem that prevented events from showing in calendar complications and a bug that caused the loss of screen calibration data. It also includes security improvements.
WatchOS can be updated via the Watch app on the iPhone by going to General »Software Update. For now, nothing about the new version also arriving for owners of Apple Watches Series 1 and 2.
