iOS 13.1.2 & iPadOS 13.1.2 Updates Released for Download with Bug Fixes for Camera, iCloud Backup, Bluetooth Car Audio, etc
Apple has released iOS 13.1.2 and iPadOS 13.1.2, in yet another rapid release of software updates to the iPadOS 13 and iOS 13 system software releases. This new version comes just days after releasing iPadOS & iOS 13.1.1.
iOS 13.1.2 and iPadOS 13.1.2 include various bug fixes and improvements, including a fix for an issue where camera was not working, an issue where Bluetooth audio would disconnect on certain cars, a fix for the flashlight not working, a resolution to iCloud backup issues, and more. The complete release notes accompanying the iPadOS & iOS 13.1.2 downloads are repeated further below.
How to Install iOS 13.1.2 & iPadOS 13.1.2 Update
Before anything else, backup to iCloud or a computer.
- Open the Settings app
- Go to “General” one then to “Software Update”
- Choose “Download & Install”
Interestingly, some iPad models may show iPadOS 13.1.2 as a much larger 3GB download, and shows the original iPadOS 13 release notes rather than those specific to iPadOS 13.1.2. This may be the case if you’re updating from a beta version to the final build.
Note that if you’re running a beta release still and you plan on updating from iOS or iPadOS beta to the final public versions you will need to follow these instructions to remove the beta profile and opt that device out of future beta software updates.
iPhone and iPad users can also update to iOS 13.1.2 or iPadOS 13.1.2 using a USB cable and a computer with iTunes or MacOS Catalina.
