    What happened to my reminders. Nothing there. I shouldn’t have to put them all back in …?

    My iPad is downloading the update

    I also didn’t get the upgrade via the settings>General Settings>Software updates; but once i hooked it up to mycomputer and ran itunes (yes, still on Mohave) it showed up immediately.

    They still haven’t fixed the huge bug of audio and video losing sync in the TV app in movies. This only happens with video files that are from non-itunes sources, and it’s starting to look like apple is intentionally trying to block non-itunes based movies. Files that don’t work in the TV app still work fine in VLC and other video players, and used to work in the TV app pre-iOS 13.

    Updating to iPadOS 13.2 bug.

    iPad Air 2 already on 13.1.3, powered up, then to Software Update.

    Did check, showed ‘Checking for update’ then showed ‘Software is up to date’ !

    Next did other things on iPad and went back to Software Update. This time it correctly showed 13.2 is available (which I then d/led and installed OK).
