4 Reasons Not to Install iOS 13.3.1 & 11 Reasons You Should



Install iOS 13.3.1 to Minimize Junk Messages

Install iOS 13.3.1 to Minimize Junk Messages

If you've sent a message to someone and you sometimes see an alert on your iPhone that says the message was delivered as junk, and you skipped iOS 13.3, install iOS 13.3.1. 

In a support document, Apple states that iOS 13.3 includes improvements to minimize junk messages in the Messages app that might impact certain messages that you send.

If for whatever reason you still occasionally see an alert, the company has provided a few workarounds for the issue:

If you’re trying to send a message to someone and you see an alert that says the message was delivered as junk, here are some things you can try:

  • Ask the person that you're trying to message to add your phone number to their Contacts.
  • Ask the person that you're trying to message to send you a message to start the conversation.
  • On your device, go to Settings > Messages > Send & Receive and make sure that only your phone number is selected under Start New Conversations From. If your Apple ID is selected, the messages will be delivered as junk.

So if you think this sounds useful, and you missed the previous version of iOS 13, think about upgrading.

    Warning to hearing aid users. If your aids stream music or phone calls, e.g. Phonak marvels or resound equivalent, DO NOT UPGRADE TO IOS 13 or 13.1. This functionality is completely lost. There is no current fix. Additionally the settings screen is not available at all. It certainly wasn’t on my iPhone 11 with preinstalled ios13.

      Kangers, I should buy you a drink. I was seconds away from installing iOs 13.1.2 when I read your comment. I’m one of those Resound hearing aid wearers that depends greatly on their app and being able to bluetooth my phone to my hearing aids. THANK YOU for saving me some real grief.

    iOS13 is google friendly made.
    For example, Safari13 repeatedly and periodically try to connect to
    even if I completely turned off fraudulent site protection and I just only enabled private browsing mode.
    iOS13 or Safari13 sends every apple user’s device information(http useragent) and ip address periodically to google company. It includes usage pattern information and indication of who is using apple device.
    Why? Now, apple is best friend of google. My privacy and anonymity is not important to them.
    My iOS version is 13.1.2

    Don’t update to IOS 13 by any means they make a lot of small (and very annoying) changes to make you want a new iPhone
    IOS 13 is not suitable for a reset that has the 3D Touch Home button does not switch between appliques
    3D Touch works in parallel with a long touch which is really uncomfortable
    A large part of the changes in IOS 13 do not take into account that the iPhone 8 screen is smaller than more advanced devices
