On 19th September 2019, the latest version of iOS 13 was released introducing a range of features like dark mode, revamped Reminder app, swift keyboard, enhanced photo, etc. But has the number 13 proved to be a jinx? Because iOS 13 is riddled with problems and bugs that need to be sorted out.
Common Problems and Bugs in iOS 13

Download fails or the system hangs in the middle of a download. Possible ways to resolve this problem is first to check your wi-fi connection. If you are using cellular service confirm that cellular data is turned on via settings>cellular>cellular data. Make sure that the date and time are set correctly. Go to settings>eneral>Date and Time and toggle on>set automatically
