iOS 13.2 beta 3 has just been released

  iOS 13.2 beta 3 has just been released Were you concerned that it had been more than 24 hours since Apple last released a beta update? Don't worry, because a new one was just released. iOS 13.2 beta 3 is now available for compatible iPhones, and it’s packed full of bug fixes… and yes, all those new emojis are in there too. The bug fixes are obviously a bit more important at this point, as is the new Deep Fusion photography that is being rolled out in iOS 13.2. The difference in clarity on medium-light photos is amazing! iPadOS 13.2 beta 3 has been released as well, of course, so iPad users should also look for an update.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it -- right? Well, some of you Apple product users may not have a choice this weekend.

Apple is warning owners of older iPhones and iPads that if they don't update their devices to the latest iOS software by Sunday, they won't be able to connect to the internet.

IPhone and iPad products from 2012 and earlier will need the update before midnight UTC on November 3 in order to maintain accurate GPS location and continue using the App Store, iCloud, email and web browsing, according to Apple.

Apple rolls out iOS 13.2 public beta 3

  Apple rolls out iOS 13.2 public beta 3 Just over a day after Apple seeded iOS 13.1.3 and iPadOS 13.1.3 to everyone who isn't part of Apple's beta program, the beta crowd has received an update of its own. The third beta releases for both iOS 13.2 and iPadOS 13.2 rolled out on Wednesday, and as of right now, the public beta is available to everyone as well. The headlining feature of iOS 13.2 is, of course, the Deep Fusion camera technology that makes medium-light photos look sharper than ever before, but you can also get your hands on a selection of new emojis if you download the new beta. That said, there are also plenty of bug fixes, and that’s really the priority here.

This is all because of the GPS time rollover issue, according to Apple, something that happens about every 19 years when GPS devices need to reset in order to accurately measure time and dates, according to the Office of Electricity at the Department of Energy.

Apple said during the last reset on April 6, GPS-enabled products from other manufacturers were affected.

So if you have an iPhone 5, 4, or a cellular-enabled iPad mini, iPad 2 or a third-generation iPad, this is for you.

The updated software version number should be 10.3.4 or 9.3.6, depending on your device.

iOS 10.3.4: iPhone 5 and iPad (4th generation) Wi-Fi + Cellular

iOS 9.3.6: iPhone 4s, iPad mini (1st generation) Wi-Fi + Cellular, iPad 2 Wi-Fi + Cellular (CDMA models only), iPad (3rd generation) Wi-Fi + Cellular

Apple warns iPhone 5 users to update iOS or risk not having a working phone

  Apple warns iPhone 5 users to update iOS or risk not having a working phone A GPS quirk requires an iOS update by Nov. 3 to keep the device online.In a support document published over the weekend, Apple warns that those with the older iPhone will need to update their devices to iOS 10.3.4 by Nov. 3 at 12:00 a.m. UTC (8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on Nov. 2) if they want to keep using them. The issue is tied to the GPS system on the device and maintaining an accurate GPS location.

If you're not sure which version your iPhone or iPad has, follow these directions:

1. Open the Settings app

2. Tap General, then tap About

3. Look for the number next to Software Version

If you're not able to update your devices before Sunday, Apple said you'll have to back up and restore using a computer because over-the-air software updates and iCloud Backup won't work anymore.
