While I'm annoyed at all the iOS 13 bugs and frequent updates I'm glad they're at least fixing them rather then let us writhe on a wire for weeks.

Everyone complaining about the updates, would you rather have no updates with fixes?

They're REALLY innovating this year...13.1.x updates every week until the holidays.

These frequent updates give me hope for being a developer at Apple sooner than expected.

iOS 12.4 is released without a patch merged in
iOS 13.0 is released only for handset devices, because holy crap, we can't have only the iPhone 11s running on these things
iOS 13.1 was supposed to be released 10 days after until ... F it, release it in half that time.
And since then, 13.1.1 and 13.1.2 after only a few days.

This OS team is burning like a person in a gasoline suit at giant BBQ cook off.

Has Apple ever patched their GM this many times in the course of 2 weeks?
