iOS 13 will be a disaster. iOS 11 all over again. Mark my words.
No one will ever mark your words!

Not sure how an almost-trillion dollar company managed not to have the software ready in time. I would have thought Apple would thrown as many devs at the issues as needed to get things done in time.
That's not how it works. ('https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brooks%27s_law')

The audio engineer messed up a little with the timing of the applause/clap track.
And I lost count of how may times I heard "excited, & exciting" words.
Not much for me here today, except for the always on watch display... I took only a sip of the Koolaid ;)
For the people that (want to) do better camera work; "rock on"
Cheers

Apple seems to be running behind on software this year. First the 13.1 feature fork before the official 13 release, then the delay on the new computational photo mode announced today, and now the staggered release for iPad OS. Fine with me - whatever it takes to get it stable
