Apple is continuing its push to patch the numerous bugs that still plague iOS 13 with a new software update for iPhones and iPads.

iOS 13.2.3 was released this morning as a free update that promises to fix a number of issues with the system search on iOS while also resolving issues with the Mail app and problems with iMessage.

To grab the new iOS 13.2.3 update, head to the Software Update section in your iPhone or iPad’s Setting’s app. iOS 13.2.3 can be installed as an over-the-air update. The update comes less than two weeks after Apple released iOS 13.2.2 which fixed a pesky memory bug that caused some apps to crash in the background.

iOS 13.2.3 doesn’t add any major new features and mostly focuses on bug fixes. Beta testing is currently underway for iOS 13.3 which brings some big new features to the Screentime app on iPhone and iPad.

Here are the full release notes for iOS 13.2.3:

  • Fixes an issue where system search and search within Mail, Files, and Notes might not work
  • Addresses an issue where photos, links, and other attachments might not display in the Messages details view
  • Fixes an issue that could prevent apps from downloading content in the background
  • Resolves issues that may prevent Mail from fetching new messages, and fail to include and quote original message content in Exchange accounts
