Apple Seeds First Public Betas of iOS and iPadOS 13.4.5

Apple today seeded the first public betas of upcoming iOS and iPadOS 13.4.5 updates to its public beta testing group, a day after releasing the second betas of iOS and iPadOS 13.4.5 to developers.

Public beta testers who have signed up for Apple's beta testing program will be able to download the iOS/iPadOS 13.4.5 updates over the air after installing the proper certificate on an iOS device.

iOS and iPadOS 13.4.5 appear to be updates that are minor in scale, focusing primarily on bug fixes, under-the-hood improvements, and other small tweaks and changes. The software may address an issue with Personal Hotspot that prevents it from working for some people and it could also fix a VPN-related vulnerability, both of which are issues that Apple said would be addressed in upcoming updates.

iOS 13.4.5 includes a new Apple Music feature that allows ‌Apple Music‌ songs to be shared on Instagram Stories. Tapping the Share button on a song in ‌Apple Music‌ creates a story with a song title, album name, and animated background, but at this time there is no way to get to ‌Apple Music‌ from the shared information.

iOS and iPadOS 13.4.5 are likely to be some of the final updates to the iOS and iPadOS operating systems as Apple transitions to working on iOS and iPadOS 14.

I keep hoping that this update will be the one to fix my car bluetooth issues but I should just give up on that idea.


strange your experience is so much different from mine. runs very smoothly with few glitches and bugs. Maybe I am still comparing to Windows and not to perfection, though, yah perfect would be nice, but perfection is a standard never to be achieved., but macOS, iOS, tvOS always beat Windows
I dont think he wants perfection. He is asking for competence. All the things he is complaining about worked before the updates. He just wants updates to be QA'd better so that things continue to work after new updates.

Yep. Nowadays it seems like "it just works" is more wishful thinking than brand execution.

True.However, iOS/iPadOS still has a moronic screen orientation bug that’s been there since v13.0.0. Reproducible and reported to Apple Support. It’s an elementary bug that never existed previously, yet QA cares not one iota about it apparently, and that’s why my SE still remains on iOS 12 while my iPad mini (5th gen) endures the “joy” that is iPadOS 13.

I was thinking about that, and I think it's a minor misplacement of emphasis on our part.
When reading that line, we put it on "works", but it actually belongs on "just".

I ask iOS to do about a dozen basic things it was able to do in 1.1.3. After a dozen years, it can just barely do any of them and the Ui is a less usable mad tangle. Doesn't exactly make me want to spend premium $ on more of these devices. If Catalina were shooting fireworks out its behind, I'd be happy to forgive the lack of attention the same complaints about iOS keep enjoying every release, but its an even worse mess. If Microsoft hadn't gone all evil empire and made Win10 a dystopian nightmare, Apple might have some serious competition to motivate it, or not, but as it stands, the computer biz seems to be running on autopilot.
