Apple is still racing to fix iOS bugs days after the release of its latest iPhones. The tech giant has released an iOS 13.1.1 update (plus a corresponding iPadOS 13.1.1 version) that tackles a number of glaring problems. The most notable is a fix for a battery drain issue plaguing users across the board, but there's also a solution for Siri's problems recognizing requests on the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. This addresses issues with restoring your device from a backup, too, so you won't want to skip this if you're interested in safeguarding your data.

Other fixes tackle a security flaw with third-party keyboard apps, slow Reminders syncing and Safari suggestions turning back on despite your preferences. While this is technically a minor release, there are plenty of crucial fixes that make it a must-have.

iOS 13.1.1 includes bug fixes and improvements for your iPhone. This update:

  • Fixes issues that could prevent iPhone restoring from backup
  • Addresses an issue that could cause battery to drain more quickly
  • Fixes an issue that could impact recognition of Siri requests on iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max
  • Resolves a problem where Safari search suggestions may re-enable after turning them off
  • Addresses an issue that could cause Reminders to sync slowly
  • Fixes a security issue for third-party keyboard apps
