Apple launches iOS 13.3 - Screen Time and improved charging

Apple has done the world a good deed with the release of iOS 13.3. With this support, physical security keys, such as YubiKey, can be used to replace software-based two-factor authentication options.

The Safari browser has also been updated to support NFC, USB, and Lightning FIDO2-compliant security keys, which bring an enhanced level of security and save the user from the trouble of typing in passwords while logging in on a website. This is a good setting for parents that lets them control who their kids can talk to, whether it's during allowed Screen Time or during downtime. That means parents can now set who their children can call, FaceTime, or Message after reaching their limit. There are also some new layout options as well as ability to like and dislike stories in the Apple News app and Stories from Apple News in the Stocks app.

Moreover, the issues that stopped deleting mails from Gmail is now fixed. Apple tends to release new iOS updates on a Tuesday or Wednesday so in all likelihood, we are going to the public release of iOS 13.3 on December 10-11.

To date, Apple has released 8 different iOS 13 updates to the public.

Apple's move to include more Screen Time features is just the latest in the technology industry's efforts to respond to people's anxiety about how phones and Internet connections are affecting our lives and relationships with each other.

As for watchOS 6.1.1, it is compatible with all Apple Watch models that received the watchOS 6 update. The new update claims to provide "important security updates" but apart from this, it doesn't bring any notable changes. All these updates are now available to download on compatible devices.
