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.
