Apple Just Released iOS 13.1.2, Includes Fixes for Camera, Flashlight, iCloud Backup & More

Apple might be a secretive company, but it's showing its hand these past few weeks. The release of iOS 13 was met with much excitement for its hundreds of new features but also frustration over the numerous bugs. Apple soon released iOS 13.1, then iOS 13.1.1, as a patch for some of those bugs, but clearly they weren't enough. How do we know? The company just released iOS 13.1.2 today, Monday, Sept. 30.

The new update comes just three days after 13.1.1's debut. That's an incredibly short amount of time between releases, even for these minor "point" updates. Today's release aims to squash bugs that would interfere with the camera, flashlight, iCloud Backup progress bar, display calibration data, Bluetooth connectivity in vehicles, and shortcuts on HomePod. You can check out the full release notes below:

iOS 13.1.2 includes bug fixes and improvements for your iPhone. This update:

  • Fixes a bug where the progress bar for iCloud Backup could continue to show after a successful backup
  • Fixes an issue where Camera may not work
  • Addresses an issue where the flashlight may not activate
  • Fixes a bug that could result in a loss of display calibration data
  • Fixes an issue where shortcuts could not be run from HomePod
  • Addresses an issue where Bluetooth may disconnect on certain vehicles
