Apple’s iOS 13 update presented a lot of long-awaited features, yet alongside Dark Mode and different enhancements comes the inescapable iOS 13 issues, bugs and different issues that spring up close by enormous programming changes.Some of these are iOS 13 bugs are minorly irritating, while others genuinely intrude on highlights or even pieces of the UI. On the off chance that you’ve kept running into issues, odds are another person has, as well – and we’ll attempt to list every single one.We’ll rundown each issue we can discover, alongside workarounds meanwhile while Apple takes a shot at a fix. Once in a while, these bugs are little enough that Apple holds up until a future variant of iOS 13 to understand; yet in some cases they’re problematic to the point that the organization surges out another form only committed to fixing out that issue.
iOS 13.1 was one of these updates blitzed out to the public barely a week after iOS 13 proper had launched, so if you’re experiencing issues, they might have already been solved. If that’s the case, the process to update to a later version of iOS is simple: head to Settings > General > Software Update.
Read on for what we’ve found – and if you have been experiencing an issue that hasn’t been fixed, keep checking back for updates about workarounds and possible fixes.
Mail app misbehaving
Apple rushed out iOS 13.1 a week ahead of schedule, and one of the big fixes was for issues with its first-party Mail app. Was it messing up email counts? Leaving out sender or sendee addresses? Duplicating notifications? Or simply not downloading email? Upgrade to the latest version of iOS 13 to fix this issue.
If your issues pertain to other email apps not feeding correctly to or from the Mail app, make sure you’re using the latest versions of those apps. If you’re still not getting your mail, try fiddling with your data fetching settings in Settings > Passwords & Accounts > Fetch New Data.
Reminders not syncing
iOS 13 overhauled the cross-device Reminders, but users have reported issues like missing reminders and lists to broad syncing issues with notes and contacts. Some might be solved by upgrading to the latest version of iOS – per the system notes, several have supposedly been fixed as of iOS 13.1.2 – but other issues might be more pernicious and require some tinkering.
Apple is aware of these problems, and for the syncing issues, wrote a checklist to troubleshoot issues. It starts by ensuring all your devices are up to date – since upgraded reminders aren’t compatible with earlier versions of iOS and macOS, and you can’t share reminders with users who haven’t upgraded – and moves on to the granular: make sure your date and time settings are correct across devices, are signed into iCloud with the same Apple ID, and keep your data within limits.
Issues with third-party keyboards
iOS 13 brought a couple issues with third-party keyboards, including preventing swapping back to QuickType after using a non-Apple option. There’s also a bit more of an insidious bug which accidentally gave keyboards “full access” to external services, even if you’d set them to run without it – Apple knows about it. In all cases, upgrading to at least iOS 13.1.1 should fix all the above issues.
iPhone failing to restore from backup
Here’s an issue fixed in iOS 13.1.1 – users were apparently prevented from restoring their iPhones from a backup. A further bug continued to show the progress bar for an iCloud Backup after successfully backing up, which was fixed in iOS 13.1.2. Upgrading should fix the issue.
