In addition, the update fixes various issues such as widgets, folders, and icons that appeared in reduced size, emails in the Mail app were sent from an incorrect alias, and incoming calls were prevented from displaying region information. It also fixes the issue which caused a temporary reduction of streaming video resolution at the start of playback.
Apple also adds a fix for the calculator issue, which prevented zeros from appearing on the screen. It also releases a fix for the issue that was restricting users to download or add songs to their library while viewing an album or playlist.
