At this moment, I am sure that most of you know about Magisk root solution that works without touching the system partition. Thanks to the Recognized XDA Developer topjohnwu for this great tool. Since rooting via Magisk is systemless, un-rooting the device or updating the software is a seamless process.
The developer is always active and working hard to produce newer versions of Magisk all the time with a lot of improvement and bug fixes. Recently, he released the newer version. i.e., the Magisk 19.3 and Magisk Manager 7.2.0. Check out his recent Tweet below:
Magisk v19.3 is just released to both public channels! Magisk Manager still need some extra work, so an update for that will come later in the future.https://t.co/YMjWhC9QJC

Magisk 19.3 update brings better process monitoring in MagiskHide along with a new user interface in the Magisk Manager application. During the process monitoring, the CPU won’t work at 100 percent, which fixes efficiency problem. Daemon crashes are less likely to happen too. This version fixes bootloops on many devices with the MagiskInit’s overhaul. Moreover, it supports Huawei’s new Extendable Read-Only File System (EROFS). This will improve the compatibility of EMUI 9.1 OS on the latest Huawei and Honor devices.
