The TV App now features an option to restart a live sports game that is already in progress. Users are also able to pause, rewind and fast-forward.
The update fixes many issues with iOS. this includes the issue where Settings app would falsely show that the device storage is full even if free space is available. Apple has also fixed the issue in Safari where tab would revert to a previous page. Another fix that has been issued is the one that caused Braille devices to slow down or stop responding when navigating through text in the Mail app.
