iOS 13.3.1 Update is Here – What’s New?

iOS Update 13.3.1

If you’re an iPhone user or have an iPad, here’s the latest iOS 13.3.1 Update along with Patch Notes exclusively for you. I woke up this morning and my battery ran low. I casually checked if there is any update for my iPhone and found out about this. If you set your iPhone or iPad to automatically update its software, then your update should automatically be processed at the time set by you or default settings. If, however, you have set to update manually, then you will have to check it from your settings >> General. Check out the image below. (Ok I am using a VPN Service)
