And Google's entire business plan depends on sucking every bit of personal information about you and your e-mail correspondents, and selling it. Thanks, but no thanks. I have foresworn Google and all its minions.My recommendation is to switch away from iCloud to Google and use BusyCal, because both Google and BusyMac support the standard of CalDAV [CardDAV], whereas Apple is only looking to lock you in with more proprietary nonsense.
As of this morning Apple, is no longer signing 12.4.1. They are still signing 12.4.2 but only for those devices which are limited to iOS 12 and can't update to iOS 13. The never even released iOS 12.4.2 for any devices that iOS 13 supported.Perhaps they'll keep signing iOS 12 for those with triskaidekaphobia. After all, Apple is a woke corporation. :)
Solved, thanks to a tip on Apple Discussions:I cannot read new messages with Siri in my car, with my phone paired to the car. Says I have to unlock the phone, which is dangerous while driving. I can send messages OK with Siri. This is a real pain... Do they think this is some kind of security thing? It is my phone and my car....
If you hold longer after the menu pop-up it will do the older behavior [eventually]. But I can see the menu being the better option, since it it actually tells you what will happen, rather than invoking some odd thing that can result in data loss, because you didn’t realize you activated it.I just had a bad experience trying to re-arrange icons on an iPhone 7 updated to iOS 13.1.2....
I haven't tried it in iOS 13, but I'll note similar bizarre behavior I encountered in iOS 12, for what it's worth:Anyone else finding that Google Maps is broken with iOS 13? It stops talking, next turn updates very slowly.
I haven't tried this with iOS 13, but, for a long time now, Google Maps has become unusable for turn-by-turn announcements in my 2009 Honda Civic. This is with an iPhone 7 Plus plugged in to the USB connector provided to use the car's nice audio system.Anyone else finding that Google Maps is broken with iOS 13?

Yes, I'm one of those "up in arms" Nikon Z series users. I'd like to upgrade to iOS 13.x but am waiting because of SnapBridge incompatibility. Let's hope Nikon and Apple are working together on the fix. I'm wondering if Nikon engineers have realized that the app simply needs to be re-written from scratch. SnapBridge has had a rocky existence to date; here's hoping this update is a significant improvement, especially when connecting via WiFi.Users of Nikon's SnapBridge app should be aware that iOS 13.x.x. appears to break at least the Bluetooth download connectivity. Not sure if its WiFi service is also compromised. [Users are] up in arms, slinging arrows at both Nikon and Apple, of course...
In spite of all the iOS 13 updates, I'm still experiencing excessive battery drain. Today, I'm down from 100% to 88% in 1.5 hours – all I've done is read BBC News for about 10-15 minutes (no videos). Several times, I've picked up my iPhone and it has been hot, with the battery drained significantly. On days I listen to music, I used to go from 100% down to about 60%; now it's 30%. I've restarted many times.
I wonder if more iCloud activity is responsible. It's hard to manage all the Apple connections and options.In spite of all the iOS 13 updates, I'm still experiencing excessive battery drain....
Tap and hold the space bar to enable smooth positioning of the cusor.Another issue I'm having with iOS 13 is changes to text editing, which make it harder and more time-consuming to select an insertion point. The "magnifying glass" UI trick seems to have disappeared, and I'm not sure how to bring it back; it's just more problematic overall.
I appreciate the tip about that multi-step trick.Tap and hold the space bar to enable smooth positioning of the cusor.
I agree. Worse battery life. iPhone 7. I don't make it through a busy day anymore. I keep checking to see what's draining the battery, but can't see any obvious culprits.
Exactly the same here - nothing obvious in the Battery settings info, and I haven't changed how I use the phone. However... I realized that Settings > Battery doesn't report on any Apple system overhead; it only lists app usage....I agree. Worse battery life. iPhone 7. I don't make it through a busy day anymore.

The Verge said:iOS 13 has gotten better, but there’s still a long way to go
Apple released iOS 13 on September 19th. Since then, there’s already been a slew of new updates: iOS 13.1 was released just five days later on September 24th, followed by iOS 13.1.1 on the 27th, and 13.1.2 on the 30th. It’s been just over a week since 13.1.2 launched, making this the longest-lasting version of iOS 13 yet.
... despite the numerous updates, there are still issues that haven’t gone anywhere for me.... Even more concerning, I’ve also run into new bugs since iOS 13.1....
So where does that all put you, the iOS 12 customer deciding whether to upgrade? Unfortunately, likely in the same place that the original iOS 13 release did. The current iteration of the software is unquestionably better than it was, but unless you truly need the new features on offer here (like if you’re also planning to update to Catalina and don’t want your Reminders app to get wrecked), it’s still probably worth waiting for another update or two to iron out a few more bugs. ... The company has already released a beta version of 13.2 with new features for the iPhone 11, so it looks like that will be coming down the pike very soon.
My subjective observation agrees. My iPhone 7 feels hotter when charging and when making phone calls than with earlier iOS versions. I’ve moved back to the beta program and updated my phone to iOS 13.2beta1. So far the phone feels cooler. I’ve been running my 10.5“ iPad Pro on it for a week with no issues.
Let's just note also that the iPhone 11 Pro Max has a very big battery and stellar battery life in comparison to other iPhones....I have the iPhone 11 Pro Max and my battery life is excellent using IOS 13.1.2. ... I been using my iPhone all day for different things and I still have about 70% of battery life left after 14 hours....

... The iPhone 11 Pro Max's powerhouse pumps out 3969 mAh at 3.79 V, for a total of 15.04 Wh. That's a whopping 2.96 Wh more than the XS Max battery, and 1.52 Wh less than the Galaxy Note 10+ 5G battery.
Where does this massive power come from? It's 4.6 mm thick, has a volume of 23.8 cm³, and weighs in at 59.6 g. Compared to the XS Max, that's 0.7 mm thicker, 4.2 cm³ larger by volume, and 13 g heavier.
I use the "Smart Battery Case" on my iPhone Xs Max, so I haven't really paid attention on iiOS, but I have noticed about a 20% decrease with iPadOS 13.
I have an iPhone XS and yesterday was the first full day on iOS 13. I didn't notice any battery problems, and the Battery settings section shows the essentially the same battery usage over the past ten days.Same on my iPhone 8.
Note that the Battery info in Settings does not show the extra drain people are seeing in iOS 13. That shows only app usage, not system usage, which may account for the discrepancy (i.e. it's apparently background/system processes that are draining the battery faster in iOS 13).I didn't notice any battery problems, and the Battery settings section shows the essentially the same battery usage over the past ten days.
