Apple has released the seventh update for its current iOS 13 mobile operating system. According to the company, version 13.2.3 is intended primarily to fix bugs. Among them is also a fix for a problem with background apps. In addition, an update for iPadOS is also available.

According to the release notes, the system search and searching in the apps mail, files and notes will now work again. In addition, Apple promises that photos, links and other attachments are displayed again in the message details – which may not have happened under certain circumstances.

In addition, users recently had the problem that Mail does not retrieve new messages. It should now belong to the past. In addition, it should no longer happen that Exchange accounts do not include the original message in a quote response.

iOS 13.2.3 also improves the performance of background apps. You may not have been able to load content in the previous version of iOS. Even with iOS 13.2.2, Apple had fixed a bug regarding background apps. They ended unexpectedly and unintentionally in the background by the user, which made multitasking almost impossible.

Owners of current Apple tablets received since yesterday also the update on iPadOS 13.2.3 . Its release notes list the same fixes that are included in iOS 13.2.3. Both updates come according to Apple also without safety-relevant fixes.
