It was largely noticed by iPhone 11 users - mostly when using Night Shift or while in a dark room. The iOS 13.6.1 update also takes care of an issue that disables the Exposure Notifications platform for some users.

The updates follow last month's release of iOS 13.6 and iPadOS 13.6 which included the new CarKey feature allowing users to replace their vehicle keys with a device running iOS 13.6.

This update is available on all eligible Apple devices. According to MacRumors and Apple Insider, iOS 13.6.1 will fix the most irritating problems of an Apple owner.


Another issue that is fixed in this version is the one that prevented unused system data files from getting deleted automatically.

Back in June, some iPhone 11 owners started experiencing a worrying problem: their iPhone display developed an unusual green tint. These are smaller updates focused on fixing bugs, like one thermal management issue that caused some displays to get a green tint.

The iOS 13.6.1 update comes just in a month after Apple released iOS 13.6 with a setting to enable automatic update downloads on a Wi-Fi network.


The software updates Wednesday include iOS 13.6.1 and iPadOS 13.6.1, as well as a supplemental update to macOS Catalina 10.15.6.

This update may not be the end of the latest patches that Apple will be releasing before this fall, since the iOS 14 is coming. If you're still new with this process, here's how you can update your Apple iPhone, iPad, or even Mac laptop.
