What’s new on iOS 13.3?

Parental Controls in the Screen Time menu

Since the release of iOS 13, this feature has been missing. And now finally, the parental control in the screen time menu added to the latest iOS 13.3 which allow you to set screen limit to control who your children can call, FaceTime or message. Also, you can manage the exact contacts that appear on your children’s devices.

Apple New Like and Dislike option

If you often use Apple News, then iOS 13.3 added the new option to follow your favourite Apple New+ stories from the magazines and also like or dislike stories with one tap.

Physical Security support added

The new iOS 13.3 also brings support for all physical security like NFC, USB, and Lightning FIDO2-compliant security keys in Safari. So the Lightning-equipped YubiKey can be used for two factors on your iPhone.

Hide or Disable Animoji and Memoji stickers

With the iOS 13 release, Apple added new Memoji stickers which are fun to use, but not for everyone. Some are still now a big fan of Memoji stickers as they wish to remove Memoji stickers in iOS 13. That’s why Apple added the option under Keyboard setting in General from there users can disable Animoji and Memoji stickers from displaying in the Emoji Keyboard in iOS 13 update.

Save edited video as a new 

Earlier, there wasn’t an option in iOS to save edited video as a new clip-on iPhone as you had to edit the video and replace the original video with the edited one. But now with iOS 13.3, Apple did a great job by letting users save the edited clip as new video while keeping the original clip safe.
