Apple releases iOS 13.3, watchOS 6.1 and tvOS 13.3 to the public

Today Apple has released new versions of iOS, watchOS and tvOS to the public. The updates include new features, performance upgrades and fixes.

iOS 13.3 and iPadOS 13.3 is quite minor compared to previous updates, but brings along Screen Time Communication Limits. This allows you to set limitations on who can be contacted, and when they can be – so, blocked during the Downtime period, for example.

The update also has the option to disable the Memoji keyboard from Settings and in Safari, there’s some new security implementations, with support for FIDO2 security keys. General performance improvements and bug fixes are also prominent.

With tvOS 13, Apple redesigned the home screen, and added a ‘What to Watch’ section in the Top Shelf. Previously, this was ‘Up Next’, and many users who used this found the change quite annoying. A new setting in tvOS 13.3 allows you to change this – go to Settings, Apps and choose the TV app.

Finally, watchOS 6.1 brings bug fixes and standard improvements – nothing major.

All software updates (update from macOS) are available to install right now.
