Apple to Release iOS 13 on September 19, iOS 13.1 and iPadOS on September 30

Apple is planning to release iOS 13 on Thursday, September 19, which is one day before new iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max devices are set to ship out to customers on September 20.

Apple announced the upcoming software launch date following its iPhone event that saw the unveiling of new devices.


Following the release of iOS 13 on September 19, Apple will release iOS 13.1 on Monday, September 30, which is well after new iPhone devices have shipped out.

Developers and public beta testers who have already upgraded to iOS 13.1 on a main may want to downgrade to iOS 13 to be able to restore their new iPhones from an iCloud backup on launch day.

iPadOS 13 will not be launching alongside iOS 13 and will instead come out on September 30 for the iPad Air 2 and later, all iPad Pro models, iPad 5th generation and later, and iPad mini 4 and later.

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')

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

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

Interesting that they'd even bother shipping iOS 13.0 at all on non-11 iPhones if 13.1 is coming just 11 days later.


Well, one pundit has theorized (and he's pretty convincing) that 13.0 was frozen to have something to load onto the new phones, so they can ship out ahead of the tariffs. Then 13.1 will be sitting there, available on delivery.
