iOS 12 vs iOS 11: What’s New in iOS 12.1.3

Published

on

These are the exciting iOS 12.1.3 fixes and features coming to your iPhone and iPad with this newest update. You don’t need to buy the new iPad Pro or upgrade to the iPhone XS to get these new features and bug fixes — you just need to install iOS 12.1.3.

The iOS 12.1.3 update isn’t as big as the 12.1, but it is packing in important features. This is an upgrade for the iPhone and iPad running iOS 11, iOS 12 and iOS 12.1.

Here are the iOS 12.1.3 features worth upgrading for. This guide to what’s new in iOS 12.1.3 also includes a look at the new iOS 12 features and how it compares to iOS 11 if you haven’t updated yet.

While this is a major update it isn’t changing the look of iOS on your iPhone or iPad. We’ve been using Screen Time, Siri Shortcuts and also trying out Waze and Google Maps on Apple CarPlay, but now you get more new features. This includes Group FaceTime, New Emojis, Photos upgrades, eSIM support and more, but it still doesn’t bring along watchOS 5.1.2 with the ECG feature on the Apple Watch 4.

The iOS 12.1.3 update is free and arrives today for the iPhone and iPad. If your device is on iOS 12, it is a quick update, if it is on iOS 11 you can upgrade but it will take a little longer.

Here’s what’s new on iOS 12.1.3 and iOS 12 for the iPhone and iPad.
