Apple may release iOS 13 by December 11

  • iOS 13.3 is expected to release later this week
  • The fresh update will bring new features and security updates
  • Apple shipped the fourth developer beta of iOS 13.3 last week

Apple has been consistently pushing iOS updates ever since it first shipped iOS 13. After shipping the fourth beta release of iOS 13.3, it seems like Apple may ship the stable release of iOS 13.3 as soon as this week itself. The first developer beta builds of iOS 13.3 shipped on November 5 alongside iPadOS 13.3 and the public beta was released on the very next day. iOS 13.3 includes some new features along with a lot of bug fixes.

A Vietnamese carrier called Viettel has released a document that asks its customers to upgrade their devices to iOS 13.3 and watchOS 6.1.1 when the telecom operator's eSIM service goes live by Friday, December 13. This means Apple is likely to ship the iOS 13.3 well before Friday. The document was first spotted by 9to5Mac.

iOS 13.3 will allow grown-ups to set Communication Limits for their kids in Screen Time. This will limit timings and contacts which can be communicated with, adding a new layer of security for young smartphone users. The new Communication Limits feature will work with FaceTime, Messages, and Phone apps. Communication Limits was supposed to ship in iOS 13 but the feature was removed during beta testing.

The latest iOS release will also allow users to disable Memoji stickers. This will be useful for people who don't use Memoji and would rather stick to regular emojis. iOS 13.3 will also add support for NFC, USB, and Lightning FIDO-2 compliant security keys in Safari and Safari Web View.

Apple typically pushes iOS updates around Tuesday and Wednesdays. iOS 13.3 may ship by Wednesday, December 11. Alongside, Apple may also ship an updated edition of iPadOS, tvOS, and watchOS on the same day.
