iPadOS and iOS 13.1 now available to download

Apple is today releasing iOS 13.1 to the public. The update includes features that were removed from iOS 13 during the beta testing period, including Shortcuts Automations, Share ETA in Apple Maps, and more. Apple is also releasing iPadOS to all compatible iPads today. After moving the release date up from September 30th, iPadOS brings some highly anticipated features to Apple’s tablet line. The most obvious one is the addition of widgets to the home screen. These can be displayed alongside the regular app icons, and it allows for a little more customization on what was previously a very static iPad home screen.

iOS 13.1 also includes a new AirDrop interface that taps into the U1 Ultra Wideband location chip found in the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro. Apple says this allows you to point your iPhone at someone else’s to easily share a file with them via AirDrop. Other tweaks in iOS 13.1 include the addition of Share ETA in Apple Maps. This allows you to share your live estimated arrival time with someone else, making it easy for them to see where you are on a map.

iOS 13.1 also includes the Automations tab in Shortcuts, as well as other small interface tweaks. There’s a new glyph icon on the volume HUD showing what device you’re playing through, such as Powerbeats Pro or AirPods. The Home app also includes new icons for different types of lights as well as new animations.

In general, iOS 13.1 should improve performance and stability compared to iOS 13. It’s certainly telling that iOS 13.1 is being released just a week after iOS 13. For comparison’s sake, iOS 12.1 was released over a month after iOS 12. Be sure to let us know if you notice any major performance or stability improvements down in the comments.

You can get iOS 13.1 or iPadOS from settings > general > software update. If you’re still on the public beta profile, you’ll need to remove this from your device to see iOS 13.1 or iPadOS.
