iOS 13.6.1 released with system storage & ‘green tint’ fix

The news: Apple just released iOS 13.6.1 with bug fixes and other improvements.


  • Addresses an issue where unneeded system data files might not be automatically deleted when available storage is low
  • Fixes a thermal management issue that caused some displays to exhibit a green tint
  • Fixes an issue where Exposure Notifications could be disabled for some users

Some peripheral details:

  • There are no security updates in iOS 13.6.1
  • Updates normally drop at 10am PST, this one came hours later than usual
  • This could be the last update to iOS 13, prior to the release of iOS 14 this Fall

Our take: Apple is continuing small development work on iOS 13 to bridge the gap between now and the release of iOS 14 sometime in the next couple of months.
