Due to a variety of bugs and gaps Apple should have preferred the release of iOS 13.1 by six days; the update appeared only four days ago. The second update for iOS 13 in the form of 13.1.1 has already been available for a few hours. This fixes further errors and closes a critical gap.
Third-party keyboards with unwanted full access
The vulnerability only applies to the use of third-party keyboards, some of which can be granted full access to the smartphone or tablet. As a result, the keyboards can run independently of other services in the background, for example, to enable additional functions via the Internet. Above all, the handling of personal data was a matter of concern. The now fixed bug ensured that keyboards could work without full permission. Apple's standard iOS keyboard is not affected, according to Apple.
IPadOS is also updated
In addition, iOS 13.1.1 corrects other errors that can be seen in the changelog at Apple. In the same step, Apple is also updating iPadOS to version 13.1.1 (changelog). This had been preferred by Apple together with iOS 13.1 from the 30th to the 24th of September. iOS 13 only appeared on 19 September with the release of the new iPhone 11 (Pro) and has already received the second update after only eight days, which fixes bugs and vulnerabilities.
