Apple has just released iOS 13, but there is already a new guy in the city. Together with iPadOS, the company released iOS 13.1, both a week before the debut originally scheduled for September 30.
Apple launched a review shortly after the downfall of iOS 13. Some people have noticed faulty behavior in 13.0, so the update could help solve problems before there are too many opportunities for complaints. On the other hand, the company has made great progress in the coming weeks with the launch of TV + and Apple Arcade.
In any case, it seems that iOS 13.1 implements features that were not yet ready for 13.0, something that is particularly relevant as more and more people get the iPhone 11. The update restores automations within shortcuts, resets the option of Share your ETA with friends on Maps, and includes lots of additional additions, such as new HomeKit icons and a new AirPods volume indicator. AirDrop will also improve, with directional suggestions.
Meanwhile, iPadOS produces some important changes designed to introduce more iPad-specific features, or, in a nutshell, gives Apple’s expensive tablet devices a better iOS experience. It is essentially a tablet optimized version of iOS 13, which includes smaller app icons and anchored widgets, enhanced multitasking with the new Slide Over feature and a more functional split view. There is also better navigation, pencil improvements and much more. Check out our full practice here.
