Apple has released iOS 13.1.1 for all compatible iPhone and iPod touch models and iPadOS 13.1.1 for all supported iPad models. The latest iOS and iPadOS versions come just days after the Cupertino company brought iOS 13.1 and the first iteration of iPadOS. Through both iOS 13.1.1 and iPadOS 13.1.1, Apple has essentially fixed the bug that was allowing third-party keyboards to gain “full access” without requiring any user permissions. There are also various other bug fixes and performance improvements. Nevertheless, a developer has shared a new exploit that apparently exists in iOS 13.1.1 and brings the possibility to jailbreak iPhone models based on up to A11 Bionic SoC.

As per the official changelog, iOS 13.1.1 addresses issues that could prevent iPhone restoring from backup. The update also fixes a battery-draining issue as well as resolves a problem where Safari suggestions were re-enabled even after turning them off.

Particularly on the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro₹ 99,900, and iPhone 11 Pro Max₹ 109,900, the new iOS version fixes an issue that could impact recognition of Siri requests. The update also enhances Reminders by addressing an issue that could have caused slow syncing.

The changelog of iPadOS 13.1.1 also mentions the inclusion of various bug fixes and performance improvements for the iPad — similar to how iOS 13.1.1 improves the experience on iPhone models. However, the major change that both new updates bring is the fix for the security issue that emerged through iOS 13 and the first version of iPadOS. It was allowing third-party keyboard apps to gain full access.
