When upgrading to iOS 13 or iPadOS 13 remove you third party keyboards

by Volker Weber

Third-party keyboard extensions in iOS can be designed to run entirely standalone, without access to external services, or they can request “full access” to provide additional features through network access. Apple has discovered a bug in iOS 13 and iPadOS that can result in keyboard extensions being granted full access even if you haven't approved this access.

13.1 is out today for both iPhone and iPad, but not for HoimePod which is still on 12.4. Also, Apple will start shipping iPad 10.2 (2019) tomorrow, a few days before the announced availability date Sep 30.


Hi Volker, would you recommend the update to 13.1 now or is it still too early?

Oh, I missed that question. Yes, your friend can upgrade now.

Thank you, Volker.
