Lots of updates and bug fixes with this version of iOS.
Apple’s latest version of iOS is now out, and among the various bug fixes, comes the Deep Fusion update for the cameras on the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro, a whole bunch of emoji, and support for both the AirPods Pro and Beats Solo Pro earbuds.
The latest version of tvOS is also out, and iOS 12.4.3 for the iPhone 5S, iPhone 6, iPad Air, iPad Mini 2/3, and iPod touch 6th-gen, so don’t forget to update your Apple devices.
That’s most of your Apple devices ready to go for updating, but if you’re a HomePod owner you’re going to want to head this way to read about an issue with the update.
You can now update to iOS 13.2 today
iOS 13.2 brings some of the most anticipated updates for the cameras on the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max. It also brings new emoji, the ability for Siri to read your messages on your AirPods, and new Siri privacy controls.
You can get the iOS 13.2 or iPadOS update by tapping on Settings > General > Software Update. If you have an Apple TV HD or Apple TV 4K, head to Settings to update to the latest version.
As with most Apple updates, your best bet is to wait until the end of the day when you are done with your phone to push the update.
Here’s the list of major updates dropping today, with a list of bug fixes below that:
