A big fix in this update is to Communication Limits as part of Screen Time. There was an issue with the feature that let any contact be added without needing the Screen Time password. Here are the full release notes:

  • Fixes an issue in Communication Limits that could allow a contact to be added without entering the Screen Time passcode.
  • Adds a setting to control the use of location services by the U1 Ultra Wideband chip.
  • Addresses an issue that could cause a momentary delay before editing a Deep Fusion photo taken on ‌iPhone 11‌ or iPhone 11 Pro.
  • Resolves an issue with Mail that could cause remote images to load even when the “Load Remote Images” setting is disabled.
  • Fixes an issue that could cause multiple undo dialogs to appear in Mail.
  • Addresses an issue where FaceTime could use the rear facing ultra-wide camera instead of the wide camera.
  • Resolves an issue where push notifications could fail to be delivered over Wi-Fi.
  • Addresses a CarPlay issue that could cause distorted sound when making phone calls in certain vehicles.
  • Introduces support for Indian English Siri voices for HomePod.

As always you can download the update by going to Settings > General > Software Update in iOS. On macOS go to System Preferences > Software Update.
