Apple Launches iOS 13.1.1 Update to Fix Critical Security Issue

iOS 13.1.1 update fixes security issueiOS 13.1.1 update fixes security issue

iOS 13 was released on the 19th of September and it was soon revealed that there may be security issues. This prompted the tech giant to release the 13.1 update on the 24th of September, along with iPadOS. Now, the Cupertino behemoth has been forced to launch yet another update, iOS 13.1.1. This update has been specifically released to fix a security issue that allowed third party keyboards on iOS 13 full access to devices. 

This means, if you are using third party keyboards and have iOS 13 or 13.1 installed, your data can potentially be transferred over the internet without your permission. iOS 13.1.1 fixes this critical issue and it is recommended for all users to quickly update to this version. iOS 13.1.1 update also fixes the battery drain issue that most users have been complaining about in the last few days. 

Let us take a quick look at some of the other improvements that come along with iOS 13.1.1.

1. Improve Siri recognition

Many users complained that Siri was unable to recognize voice and was not performing as well as it used to before. The latest release fixes this issue and ensures that everything you say is understood by Siri correctly. Siri’s performance has been improved on iPhone 11. 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max as well, although most people will only now have begun to use those devices anyway. 

2. Fix syncing issues in Reminder

Some users noted that they were not able to sync Reminders quickly and correctly. While some users felt the syncing took too long, others noticed that not was not done correctly anyway. The latest update fixes this issue and ensures that all your Reminders are synced back and forth correctly, without any hurdles. Surely, this will ensure that your Reminder alerts will continue to keep you productive. 

3. General improvements in performance 

There were issues with restoring from backup, according to some iPhone users. Either the restoring would halt in the middle or it would take too long to restore from backup. This caused problems to many iPhone users, resulting in frustration. The latest update fixes this issue and I proves the general performance of your device. 

All is still not well with iOS 13.1.1 update

If you thought all your problems will be solved when you update to 13.1.1, you are in for some disappointment. Many users complain that even when the iPhone reveals full bars, data seems to drop. Users complain that they are unable to get good reception and connectivity in places such as subways, though the phone’s network indicator bars reveal that there is full network coverage. Many have discovered that toggling between airplane mode or cellular data does not resolve this issue either. However, switching the phone off and on seems to fix this particularly annoying problem. Surely, Apple will release an update to fix this error too, in the coming few days. 

 iOS 13.1.1 update is available now

Meanwhile, all you need to do is go to Settings, click on General, and choose “Software Update” in order to update to the latest version of iOS. Make sure to backup all your data before you update to iOS 13.1.1. Although nobody has complained about data loss, it is always good practice to make a backup of your existing data before updating your operating system. If you continue to face issues with your iPhone performance even after updating to 13.1.1, do let us know your specific issue in the comments section below. Hopefully, it will be picked up by an Apple executive in Cupertino!

The world’s thinnest laptop stand is back, redesigned for smartphones and tablets!

The guys at MOFT make it look so easy to build a stand that’s strong, yet so incredibly sleek and lightweight, it’s practically invisible. Fresh off its high after receiving nearly a million dollars in funding, the MOFT Laptop stand still remains one of the most innovative stands I’ve seen. Weighing practically nothing, and measuring as thick as a credit card, the MOFT Laptop stand sat flat on the back of your laptop, being practically unnoticeable until it opened out to become a two-angle stand for your laptop. Moreover, the stand was universal, and was designed to be sleek enough to sit on the back of your laptop all the time. The guys behind that laptop stand are back now, with a stand for your phones and tablets! Designed with its signature lightweight and thin form factor, the MOFT X “Invisible” Stand for your phone and tablet sits flat against the back of your device, can be opened and used in both portrait and landscape modes, works as a grip for your fingers, so you can use your smart-device single-handedly, and even doubles as a wallet to store some of your payment/identity cards while on the go! If anything, the MOFT X stand for your smartphone and tablet delivers even more function than its elder brother, the laptop stand, did.

The MOFT X invisible foldaway smartphone and tablet stand sits flat against your smart device, just like its laptop counterpart. Designed to fold out with a quick outward motion, it converts into a stand you can use in portrait mode, resting at a variety of angles that are perfect for typing, Skyping, and swiping. The angles help reduce neck strain, and even work with your facial unlocking system to unlock your phone whenever you look at it. Tilt your phone sideways and the stand continues to prop your device up, thanks to its ability to work in both portrait as well as landscape. The stand’s internal magnetic adhesion system is strong enough for the MOFT X to even work as a gripping-loop for your fingers. Slide your hand in, and the MOFT X lets you use your smartphone singlehandedly, providing the same sort of functionality a Pop Socket would give you, while remaining sleek enough to slide into your pockets without getting caught in the fabric.

You’d think the MOFT X’s functionality ends there, but the guys at MOFT Studio had other ideas. You see, the MOFT X for your smartphone even works as a wallet, with enough space to stash 3 cards, allowing you to carry your favorite payment cards, your public-transport access cards, loyalty cards, or your identity cards. Just slip them into the MOFT X’s slot and the stand doubles into a slim, minimalist wallet that’s attached to the back of your phone. Its magnetic system even gives it mounting abilities, allowing you to mount your smart-device in your car, on your bathroom wall, or even in the kitchen, on your fridge.

At less than 2mm thick, the MOFT X is designed to universally work with any smartphone or tablet. Designed with a repositionable glue base, the MOFT X can fit on your phone/tablet with or without a case (as long as the surface is flat and texture-less), and can even be peeled off when needed, leaving absolutely no marks on your gadget. Optimized for a use-case that is more versatile than a laptop, the MOFT X uses its sleek material and innovative design to push the boundaries of what a stand can do for you. I mean, how often do you come across a phone/tablet stand that’s less than 2mm thin, adjustable up to 3 angles, magnetically mountable on walls, and with the ability to even work as a wallet?!
