iOS 13.3 and iPadOS 13.3

For both iOS 13.3 and iPadOS 13.3, this new update brings communication time, a feature we reported earlier has finally arrived. This feature will let you set screen time limitations, who and when to communicate with or not. During the set the screen time communication with everyone will be allowed. The downtime, on the other hand, will limit communications.

This feature is useful for parents who can set screen time limits on their kids’ iOS devices allowing them to communicate with select people during the downtime.

Another feature this update brings is a new setting that allows users to disable Memojis and Animojis from appearing on the emoji keyboard. This setting can be found in Settings>General>Keyboard>Emoji.

Other changes and bug fixes in iOS 13.3 includes the following
