Apple has launched iOS 13.2.2 (and a corresponding iPadOS 13.2.2) replace to deal with an annoying — no, completely irritating — bug in iOS 13.2 that broke multitasking on the iPhone and the iPad.
However does it repair the issue? And does it introduce new annoying issues?
Should learn: iOS 13 has an enormous bug that makes me need to dump my iPhone and iPad
I have been working iOS 13.2.2 and iPad 13.2.2 since yesterday’s launch — about 18 hours — on plenty of gadgets, and preliminary assessments counsel the multitasking bug has been fastened. Switching between apps feels quick, in actual fact, multitasking feels quicker and smoother than it did on earlier iOS 13 releases. Additionally, apps seem to stay in reminiscence after the gadget is locked and unlocked — an issue that gave the impression to be current on the iOS 13.three developer launch I examined the opposite day.
However it’s not all excellent news.
One draw back appears to be battery life. It is early days, however over the previous 18 hours my iPhones and iPads have been hammering at battery life. I’ve recharged my principal iPhone twice, and my iPad is working down significantly quicker than beforehand. This could possibly be only a side-effect of putting in an replace (I all the time advocate going by a few cost cycles earlier than passing any judgment on battery life), or it could possibly be a brand new bug. I suppose time will inform.
