iOS 13.1 release: What to expect for tomorrow's OS update - AppleMagazine
Apple's point releases are designed to squash bugs and security patches, but it's also an opportunity to introduce new features that were not ready for the main release or were unannounced.
The same is the case for iOS 13.1 and indeed subsequent iOS 13 releases, as we'll see in the coming months with new updates.
What's new in iOS 13.1?
Before the launch of iOS 13, Apple took the unusual move of seeding the first beta of the iOS 13.1 update, introducing some of the features that were removed from iOS 13, including Automations in the Shortcuts App and the ability to share an ETA in the Maps app.
The point release also introduces the audio sharing feature introduced in iOS 13 to Beats headphones with an H1 or W1 chip, expanding the feature from AirPods and Powerbeats Pro, and allowing users to listen to audio from an iPhone with more than one pair of headphones , which is great for families, couples, and groups traveling on airplanes.
Alongside a new audio sharing feature, Apple introduced new icons for AirPods, Beats, and HomePod devices when they're connected to the iPhone, as well as new HomeKit icons and smaller changes such as new dynamic wallpapers, an indicator for TestFlight apps, and more.
What about iOS 13.2?
Whilst we don't have a release date just yet, iOS 13.2 is expected to follow in October or November with new emoji, such as disability-themed emoji, including a new guide dog, an ear with a hearing aid, wheelchairs, a prosthetic arm, and a prosthetic leg - alongside features such as the ability to have Siri announce new messages, Apple Tags support, the Image Capture API, and more . We'll bring you more on iOS 13.2 as and when we get it.
