For some people it's just never enough and there is no making them happy.
Cute.

So the fact that we're only at October 15th and the current release is 13.1.3 doesn't mean anything to you?

Do you know when 12.1.3 was released? January 22nd of this year.

It normally takes Apple months to go through this many iterations of any iOS version. They've been forced to fast track everything due to the exceptionally poor quality of this release.

People are right to complain, and should keep up the pressure. Apple's legendary software quality has steadily declined and this year is so bad that they've had to abandon long-standing schedules. As a developer myself, I can only imagine how toxic the culture is at Apple right now.

How about fix the issue where email notification says there’s mail, then you open mail and no mail downloaded until you do a manual refresh?

Edit: It MAY be fixed!
Edit 2: nope it’s not fixed.

I hate bugs as much as the next person, but just reading this forum... sounds like a bunch of whiny entitled teenagers. Let's appreciate the fact that Apple is consistently putting out updates to fix things.
