Apple rolls out watchOS 5.1.3, iOS 12.1.3, macOS 10.14.3 update: Here's what new

Apple has also updated the tvOS, which like the Apple Watch, Mac and iOS update, is also a minor one.


Apple has started rolling out an update for iPhones, iPads, Apple Watch, MacBook, Apple TV and the HomePods. The iPhones will be upgrading to iOS 12.1.3 from iOS 12.1.2, while iPads will be updating from iOS 12.1.1. The update will be rolled out over-the-air. If you own one, some or all of these devices, here's what's new in the update.

Per Apple's release note, the iOS 12.1.3 for iPhone and iPad includes fixes for multiple bugs affecting iPad Pro, HomePod, CarPlay, among others. If you are a HomePod user, the update will fix the issue where the smart speaker would suddenly restart or Siri would stop listening.

To access the update on your iPhone or iPad, you can head to Settings > General > Software Update.

On the iPad Pro, iOS 12.1.3 fixes an issue that could cause audio distortion when using external input devices. The update also fixes the issue that caused disconnects from the 2019 iPhones on CarPlay.

The macOS has also been upped to the version 10.14.3, which Apple says will improve the security, stability, and compatibility of the computer. Not vague at all!

In addition to that, Apple has also released the watchOS 5.1.3 and tvOS 12.1.2 today. These two seem to be minor updates that fix a few bugs.
