Apple drops iOS 13.1.1 with fixes for Siri, battery drain, restoring from a backup and more

Earlier this week, Apple alerted customers that third-party keyboards on iOS 13 could gain “full access” and transfer data over the internet even without user permission, and now the company has already released an update to fix it. iOS 13.1.1 is rolling out now.

iOS 13.1.1 includes a handful of bug fixes and improvements. Highlights include addressing a battery drain issue, solving a security matter related to third-party keyboard apps, fixing an issue that could cause Reminders to sync slowly and remedying a bug that might cause Safari search suggestions to re-enable after being turned off.

The update also fixes an issue that Apple said could prevent the iPhone from restoring from a backup and resolves a problem that may impact Siri’s ability to recognize requests on the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max.

Apple’s update largely addresses the same issues on the iPad.

Users with a device that is compatible with iOS 13.1.1 can grab the update over-the-air by navigating to Settings -> General -> Software Update. How much free space you’ll need will depend on which updates you have previously installed.
