Apple has just released iOS 13.6.1 and iPadOS 13.6.1 for all users, just one month after the release of iOS 13.6. The update fixes some known issues related to Exposure Notifications and another that may cause the screens to display a green tinge.
iOS 13.6 was released in July with Car Key, a digital key that will work to lock, unlock and start supported vehicles. The update also introduced Apple News + Audio with professionally streamed audio stories streamed by the Apple News team to your device. And now Apple is releasing iOS 13.6.1 and iPadOS 13.6.1 for all users.
An important aspect of today’s update is that it fixes a problem that could cause a noticeable green tint on the screen of some iPhone models, as reported here in June. According to Apple, this problem was caused by a thermal management failure and is now fixed with iOS 13.6.1.
iOS 13.6.1 and iPadOS 13.6.1 are now available for all Apple devices that are compatible with iOS 13 and iPadOS 13. Users can install the latest update on iPhone, iPod touch and iPad via the software update menu in the Settings application.
