Apple Seeds Third Public Betas of iPadOS and iOS 13.1

Apple today seeded the third betas of upcoming iPadOS and iOS 13.1 updates to developers, one week after seeding the second public betas and a day after providing the third beta of iOS 13.1 and iPadOS 13.1 to developers.

Beta testers who have signed up for Apple's beta testing program will receive the iOS 13.1 beta update over-the-air after installing the proper certificate on an iOS device.

iOS 13
Those who want to join the beta testing program can sign up on Apple's beta testing website, which gives users access to iOS, macOS, and tvOS betas.

iOS 13.1 includes multiple features that were announced at WWDC but were ultimately removed from iOS 13 over the beta testing period. Shortcuts Automations, for example, is back in iOS 13.1.

Shortcuts Automations allows Shortcuts users to create personal and home automations from the Shortcuts app to have actions performed automatically when specific conditions occur. Share ETA, a major maps feature, is also available in iOS 13.1. With Share ETA, you can share your estimated time of arrival to a location with a friend or family member.

Other new features include new icons on the volume indicator when headphones or speakers are connected (with icons for AirPods, Beats headphones, and HomePod), more detailed HomeKit icons in the Home app, and updates to Dynamic Wallpapers.

Mouse support, an accessibility option in iOS 13, has been improved in iOS 13.1 allowing a long press or 3D Touch to be mapped to the right click function of the mouse. Reading goals now include PDFs, Nike+ is now just Nike, and iOS 13.1 supports HEVC video encoding with alpha channels.

There are some other smaller changes in iOS 13.1, which we outlined in our iOS 13.1 tidbits article.

Apple plans to release iOS 13 to the public on Thursday, September 19, and iOS 13.1 will follow on Monday, September 30.

Just an FYI for anyone looking to jump in at this late date. I have not participated in any of the iOS 13 betas (but I have in 11 and 12 in the past). I installed the beta profile, and it took me right to 13.1 with no option to just do 13.0.
Your phone must have 105% battery or be connected to AirPower to install iOS 13.0

I don't have a dev account, just a beta tester.
Don't need a dev account. I don't have one as well. Running the GM currently.

I don’t know about others but there are still bugs in iOS 13
In 13.’s latest beta in an iPhone 8+ I still have issues (reported) with the removal of hardware based 3D Touch. To be clear, rearranging apps is still difficult and takes several tries and app switching via 3D Touch on the left edge barely works. Yes, I know almost no one uses this but I do and it was a feature when I bought the phone, a phone Apple still sells. And this is what I dislike, as soon as the phone is “old” they start removing things with the justification of supporting newer phones. The iPhone 8 Plus came out just two years ago. I don’t want to dump it yet, simple.
Note that I am not an Android user and this is in not in any way intended to bash Apple comparing it with others.

If you are already on 13.1 beta then the "next software update" will be 13.1 not 13.0 as the 13.0 GM / release will still be an "older" build than the latest 13.1 beta and so not seen as an update.

The current situation is slightly unusual because we had the 13.1 beta released before the 13.0 GM / release whereas normally a .1 beta would only appear after .0 had been fully released.

What I’ve found with rearranging apps, tap and hold an app until you feel the Taptic Engine “tapping” you back, then you quickly move the app. Doing that forces the system to quickly react, allowing you to either delete the app or rearrange them as needed.
