Apple uploaded a warning for iOS 13 users who installed a third-party keyboard application on their device. What’s in the warning?

Beware of 3rd party keyboard app that exploits iOS 13 Bug!

Apple warned they had found a bug on iOS 13 that could potentially lead the app to have full access to the user’s iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. This bug can work on third-party keyboard applications.

iOS 13 Bug Give a Third-Party Keyboard Access to the iPhone, Be Warned!

Although some third-party keyboard applications are set up to run independently without access to the device, the application can require the user to give full access to the phone to provide additional features.

Users can check if they have a third-party keyboard application loaded on their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch by going to Settings> General> Keyboards> Keyboards. Apple said it would release a software update that would eliminate bugs and fix this problem.

Apple also points out that security issues have nothing to do with the device’s built-in keyboard. The bug also does not affect third-party keyboard applications that do not seek full access to the device where they are installed.

“Third-party keyboard extensions on iOS can be designed to run completely independently, without access to external services, or they can request full access to provide additional features through network access. Apple has discovered a bug on iOS 13 and iPad OS that can result in keyboard extensions being granted access full even if you have not agreed to this access, “Apple was quoted as saying by Phone Arena on Thursday (9/26/2019).

Apple has just released iOS 13.1, a few days after it was released. iOS 13 fixes a previous vulnerability that allows someone to access iPhone user contacts without even unlocking the phone.
