IOS 13 has a nasty location privacy bug

Most iPhone owners across the globe will be enjoying the delights of iOS 13 tonight but that won't be the case if you have a much older model in your pocket.

With Apple set to release the latest version of the iPhone operating system, technology geeks are already restless, checking if their smartphones will be compatible with the new iOS 13 update.

iOS 13 includes new privacy features, a system-wide dark mode, battery optimization tools, and big improvements to the iPad via iPadOS.

The iOS 13.1 will bring several features that were avoided for the initial iOS 13 release, including automated Siri Shortcut actions, a share ETA feature in Apple Maps, and data separation for enterprise devices, The Verge reported on Thursday. You'll be notified automatically when your device receives it.

Safari now features an updated start page with favorites, frequently and most visited websites, as well as Siri suggestions, per-site settings, and a download manager.

The Health App now supports cycle tracking, period prediction, fertile window prediction and period notifications, in addition to a new Summary View.

To be clear, this does not seem to be a Facebook app bug-it does appear to be a bug with iOS 13 itself. "iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max power needs are dynamically monitored", the Apple document notes, "and performance is managed so that it can address these needs in real-time".
