Apple releases iOS 13.1 and iPadOS 13.1 public betas”>Juli Clover for MacRumors:

Apple today seeded the first beta of an upcoming iPadOS and iOS 13.1 update to [public beta testers], one day after surprising developers with the new beta.

Beta testers who have signed up for Apple’s beta testing program will receive the iOS 13.1 beta update over-the-air after installing the proper certificate on an iOS device.

iOS 13.1 is not a mistake, but it was a surprise as Apple has never before released a point update for software that’s not out yet. With the update, Apple is likely aiming to make iOS 13.1 ready for download shortly after iOS 13 becomes available.

MacDailyNews Take: Get it while it’s hot, but, remember, it’s definitely a beta, so only install on test hardware!


  1. An easy way for Apple to avoid the “unlucky” number 13 – just make it 13.1, which is not 13! I used to tell Steve Jobs about this back in the day, mainly because I am a genius and the tech world wouldn’t be the way it is today without me. All praise me, I am the closest thing to a tech God you’ll ever find, and Woz can go screwn himself, I told him that too
