A number of applications may make use of the Bluetooth active connection to coordinate tracking of your location whenever going around doing daily business and therefore may infringe on user’s rights to privacy. The iOS 13 is able to give updates dealing with apps in the background that have been keeping track of your location also having to pin point the locations established by the connection on a map. It is within a user’s hands to give permissions to actively allow any tracking via Bluetooth or to stop it.Keyboard IssuesThe iOS 13 update comes with particular caution regarding 3rd party keyboard applications in iOS 13 specifically. The installation of 3rd party keyboard apps like Swift Key or others like it can request full authorization to access your OS to establish contact with other apps on the device thereby enabling extra features. A Bug in iOS 13 specifically may grant full access to your OS by passing any authorization from user. The apps that require to full access may affect the keyboards that excludes built -in keyboard on the iOS device. The problem with 3rd party apps gaining full access will be the capturing of keystroke data that may be to their disposal as user will be doing searches directly on Google or other secure web search engines. Vital and confidential information may be within reach of unverified and trusted people.Possible Solutions· Update to iOS 13.1.1 or higher to directly resolve issues that involve with third party keyboards.· Check to verify if there has been full access without authorization and permission by Settings>General > Keyboard > Keyboards· Uninstall third party keyboards you don’t trustFailed Sync of RemindersA new refreshed look is available under the iOS 13 as new smart list, organized features, faster toolbar and the ease of adding documents is made possible.

The following steps can help to avoid problems with reminders after iOS 13 update.· After update to iOS 13 , before opening reminders apps for the first time connect the device to internet· The welcome reminders screen shows with upgrade options, you can decide to tap now for an instant upgrade or tap later for to do it in the future.· The upgrade will only affect the existing reminders in the primary iCloud account but not in other accounts like exchange accounts.Default speakerphone for calls when using Siri.There has been notable issue with iOS 13 update where users’ enable Siri and request a phone call for a certain contact where the call is placed on speakerphone by default. The challenge rests with users that may be driving or want to conduct private business. Therefore a lot of users have turned to restarting their devices which has not worked.Possible Solution· To solve the problem try Accessibility>Touch> Call Audio Routing> Bluetooth Headset· Prompting Siri by holding the power button may also work but may not be ideal for users engaging in another activity at that moment…
Battery drainSome iOS 13 users have noticed that battery life seems degraded after the upgrade to Apple’s latest mobile operating system. It’s unfortunate, but no surprise, as there are normally such complaints after every major iOS update. That’s partly because the new OS will cycle through a number of major system-level operations to integrate with your device, such as indexing with Spotlight, Photos, and various iCloud activities.
- Plug in your device and wait for a while. That’s right, just leave your device plugged in overnight, and connected to Wi-Fi. It should take from a few hours to a day or two for everything to get back to normal, especially if your device is restoring a heavy volume from iCloud or syncing data from various sources.
- Check for additional iOS updates by going to Settings > General > Software Update. Software updates often have bug fixes and improvements, like the current series with iOS 13, and if a bug or other known issue is degrading battery life, it’s likely to be resolved.
- Update individual apps too, since some may have bugs that were patched. With iOS 13 and later, you can update apps by going to App Store > Your Account > Updated Recently.
- Check which apps or activity is using your battery by going to Settings > Battery. Often apps that use video or location services drain the battery. If you see an app you don’t use draining the battery, delete it.
- Check iPhone battery health through Settings > Battery > Battery Health. If the battery is not operating at an optimal level, it may need to be replaced.
- Background App Refresh allows apps in the background to stay updated without manual input, but that can negatively affect battery life. Tap Settings > General > Background App Refresh and toggle the switch off.
- Having display brightness on high can reduce battery life. Open Settings > Display & Brightness and adjust the slider to a lower level.
- Disable the Raise to Wake feature, which uses your device’s accelerometer and can cause the screen to be on more than needed, especially if you are active. Open Settings > Display & Brightness > Raise to Wake and switch it off.
- Low Power Mode reduces activity and power on the iPhone to prolong the battery life, and it can offer a huge boost to battery life in iOS 13 and other versions. Open Settings > Battery and toggle on Low Power Mode. The battery icon in your iPhone menu bar will turn yellow.
- Turn off location services for any app that does not need it via Settings > Privacy > Location Services. Scroll down to the app list and disable location access for apps that do not require location data to function by tapping on them and choosing Never or While Using the App.
- A forced reboot can sometimes resolve battery issues.Contacts Lost in iOS 13.1.3After updating to iOS 13.1.3, some iPhone users found that their Contacts app malfunctioning. Some have contact names but no content in them, while others just show up as empty. This issue underscores the importance of backing up your devices.
- Merge contacts from iCloud. If all or some of your contacts are missing, use iCloud to restore them without overwriting current data. Go to Settings > Your Name > iCloud > Contacts. Switch Contacts on if it is off. Your device may give you two options for previously synced contacts. Choose to keep them on iPhone and Merge. Your contacts should be restored.
- Re-sync your contacts with iCloud, then use iCloud as the default. Tap Settings > Contacts > Default Account > iCloud.
- Reset all settings, then sync contacts from iCloud.
- Factory reset your iPhone, then restore your backup from iTunes or iCloud.
- Sign out and then back into iCloud and then sync your contacts.
- Go to Contacts > Group > Check All iCloud or All iPhone to view all your contacts.
- Hard reset your device or force restart it.iOS 13.2 is here, bringing Deep Fusion image processing, support for AirPods Pro, HomeKit Secure Video, new emoji and much more.
