According to the new report, Apple has set the production wheels in motion and soon in September 2021, you will see the millions of iPhone 13 smartphones stockpiled in its warehouse.

So, the iPhone 13 launch date can be expected on the fourth Friday of September 2021, according to the previous iPhone’s launching patterns.

According to Citing supply chain sources, DigiTimes, Cyntec, which is already taking business from Apple has reported that iPhone 13 is expected to be launched before this fall. The company is set to post a 25% revenue increase for the second quarter of 2021. All credit goes to the iPhone parts order.

Apple Releases iOS 13.4.1 for iPhone, That Fixes FaceTime Bug and…

Apple Releases iOS 13.4.1 for iPhone, That Fixes FaceTime Bug and

Apple Releases iOS 13.4.1 for iPhone, That Fixes FaceTime Bug and

On April 7, at 10 a.m., Apple has released iOS 13.4.1 to the iPhone and iPad users. The update comes exactly after two weeks since the release of iOS 13.4 which has 33 new features and changes to compatible iPhones and iPad

According to Apple, the latest iOS 13.4.1 update fixes two bugs:

  1. Fixes a FaceTime Problem that has been seen on devices running iOS 13.4 could not jump into calls when communication with other older devices running iOS 9.3.6 and earlier versions or with Max OS X 10.11.6 and earlier versions
  2. Fixes Bluetooth Problem – Apple has fixes a bug where choosing “Bluetooth” from the Settings app’s quick actions menu on the Home Screen fails

It seems that Apple’s strategy for iOS release has deviated from its usual path, as of late. Because Apple released the first beta for iOS 13.4.5 after releasing iOS 13.4, skipping 13.4.1, 13.4.2, 13.4.3, and 13.4.4.

Based on 13.4.1 release, it seems that Apple is saving those minor numbers for some official updates and it’s just trying to remove bugs and security patches rather than introducing some extra features and changes.

You can clearly see the following release notes for iOS 13.4.1 for iPhone and iPad, that there are no published patches for any CVEs, so the update has no security updates.

  • Fixes an issue where devices running iPadOS 13.4 could not participate in FaceTime calls with devices running iOS 9.3.6 and earlier or OS X El Capitan 10.11.6 and earlier
  • Addresses an issue on iPad Pro 12.9-inch (4th generation) and iPad Pro 11-inch (2nd generation) where the flashlight may not turn on after tapping the Flashlight button in Control Center or on the Lock screen
  • Addresses a bug with the Settings app where choosing Bluetooth from the quick actions menu on the Home screen would fail

How to Update your iPhone and iPad to iOS 13.4.1?

  • To update to iOS 13.4.1
  • Go to Settings on your iPhone and iPad
  • Tap General
  • Tap Software Update

Apple Releases iOS 13.4.1 for iPhone, That Fixes FaceTime Bug and

Follow the on-screen instructions to download and install the latest software on your iPhone and iPad. After the download finishes, tap “Continue” to start updating. It will install automatically if you have enabled “Automatic Updates“
