Apple Releases First Beta of iOS 13.1 to Developers

Apple hasn't yet released iOS 13, which is still being beta tested, but the company today seeded the first beta of iOS 13.1 and iPadOS 13.1 to developers for testing purposes.

Developers who have downloaded the profile for ‌iOS 13‌ from the developer website will receive the iOS 13.1 beta over the air.


Apple has never before released a point update to an iOS beta ahead of when a new update has launched, so it's not clear if this release of iOS 13.1 is a mistake, or what might specifically be included in the update. While it was originally believed the iOS 13.1 beta was an error, it appears that Apple is indeed testing an iOS 13.1 update that will be released shortly after ‌iOS 13‌.

The iOS 13.1 release notes suggest that the update reintroduces the Automations feature in Shortcuts, and adds other functions that were removed over the course of the ‌iOS 13‌ beta testing period.

Apple has seeded eight betas of ‌iOS 13‌ so far, with the last one having been released on August 21. ‌iOS 13‌ is expected to be released in September alongside new iPhones.

I want to be the first person to go on record (even before my iPhone and iPad have finished updating) to say that this release positively feels 'snappier'. Thank you all. ;)

They need to mysteriously release another Catalina update...just saying

addendum: I like how the editors went back and rephrased their headline by removing “mysteriously” *chuckle*

This GM release is going to be the worst in years. A shame because I really want dark mode.

Why?

I thought that in the USA particular there is a lot of suspicion around the number 13 (e.g. no 13th floor in some hotels) so maybe this is why?

It's true. My building doesn't have a 13th floor. I mean it does, it actually goes up to 17 floors. But 13 is skipped, jumps from floor 12 to floor 14. It's weird and I see it far more often than not here in the states.

I don't care about that one either. But if I go to buy some snacks at 7-11 and the cashier tells me my total is $6.66, you can be sure I'm adding a pack of gum to my purchase.
