Apple iOS 12
In just over a week of Apple rolling out the latest iOS 12.3 to iPhones and iPads globally, the Cupertino giant has again started the rollout of the iOS 12.3.1 update. This new update is now available on iPhones and iPads and is bringing a number of bug fixes and improvements. Apple had also started rolling out a supplemental update for the macOS 10.14.5 which fixes issues found on the T2 chipset on the MacBook Pro models.
The new iOS 12.3.1 update brings correction to the Messages app. The new update now addresses a bug which did not allow the “Report Junk” option from appearing on a number of chat threads. There is another bug which made unknown senders appear in the main inbox even when they should not be appearing. The new iOS update also addresses an issue which affected VoLTE calls.
How to update iPhone to 12.3.1:
- Go to Settings, scroll down to General.
- Scroll down to Software, go to Software Update.
- Tap on Search for Update. If the update is available, it will show up.
- Click on Download and install.
Apple iOS 12.3.1 patch notes for the update are:
- Fixes an issue that could prevent making or receiving VoLTE calls.
- Fixes issues in Messages that could cause messages from unknown senders to appear in your conversation list even though Filter Unknown Senders is enabled.
- Fixes an issue that could prevent the Report Junk link from appearing in Messages threads from unknown senders.
The iOS 12.3.1 has been released for all iOS 12 compatible devices. This means all iPhones and iPads starting from the iPhone 5S or later, or iPad Mini 2 or later, and 6th Generation Apple iPod Touch or later. The updates should be rolling out automatically but you can also trigger them manually.
The update weighs around 100mb in size but may vary depending on size and model of the iPhone or the iPad.
