Apple rolled out an update for iOS 13.2 on Thursday that should address the terrible multitasking issue that has been plaguing iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch users for the past several days. Apps running in the background were resetting almost immediately, which was causing some users to lose progress and data.

This update comes just two days after the first iOS 13.3 beta was seeded to developers. The background refresh bug is the highlight of this update, but there are other bug fixes included as well, so if you’re ready for a better overall iOS experience, this is one you’ll want to download and install right away.
