Apple has released the first fix for the iOS 13 since it was released last Thursday. The iOS 13.1 is to patch some bugs the iOS 13 update brought. In this piece, you’ll see how you can download iOS 13.1 update without any problems.

Before you do, know what devices are eligible for the update. If you are using the iPhone 6, 6 Plus or older models, don’t think of updating, because it is not available for you. The eligible ones are the iPhone 6s, 6s Plus, and later models.

If you are having a compatible iPhone, then read below for step-by-step instructions on what to do to update your device to iOS 13.1.

How to download iOS 13.1 update

Before you set out to download the iOS 13.1, make sure you have done a backup of your iPhone —just in case. That way, you can always restore your device’s settings, apps, and data back to normal if anything goes wrong.

Check out how to back up your iPhone before you start upgrading it to iOS 13.1. After backing up, let’s move on to the main activity.

Downloading iOS 13.1 should be an easy task. Make sure you are connected to a Wi-Fi network with a good internet connection as this process can be tedious if your network or connection isn’t very good. It should take you a couple of minutes to finish if your connection is perfect.

  1. Head over to your Settings app on the iPhone.

2. In your Settings page, scroll down to the third section and tap on the “General” option.

4. When the update available for your iPhone comes, hopefully, the iOS 13.1, hit the button to update to iOS 13.1, and you’ll start the process.

As said earlier, the process can be a little bit extensive and depending on your connection. It could take minutes or hours.

Also, know that you may be having a good internet connection but it is still slow. This might be caused by Apple’s servers as a bunch of other people around the world are also trying to upgrade to the new OS version.

If you have Automatic Updates turned on, the update should auto-install anyway according to Apple protocol, that is, overnight if your device is plugged in.
