What you need to know
- Apple has patched a security issue with third-party keyboards.
- The fix is available in iOS 13.1.1.
- iOs 13.1.1 also introduces fixes for issues that impact battery drain and restoring from backup.
Earlier this week, Apple acknowledged a bug in iOS 13 that allowed third-party keyboards to gain full access to a device even without users permission. Now, thanks to iOS 13.1.1, that bug has been patched.
That's good news for iOS 13 users who prefer to use a third-party keyboard such as Gboard.
Here's what Apple previously said about the bug:
Third-party keyboard extensions in iOS can be designed to run entirely standalone, without access to external services, or they can request "full access" to provide additional features through network access. Apple has discovered a bug in iOS 13 and iPadOS that can result in keyboard extensions being granted full access even if you haven't approved this access.
Since iOS 13's initial release on September 19, Apple has released a few different updates to address bugs and other issues. First, the company rolled out iOS 13.1, which features several new features, and now iOS 13.1.1 is out just days later.
It hasn't been the smoothest launch for iOS 13, so it's likely we'll see even more complementary updates in the coming weeks.
