That sure didn’t take long. After releasing iOS 13 last Thursday, Apple is already out with the replacement.
iOS 13.1 brings Shortcuts Automations and other new features. It also squishes some bugs in the earlier version.
New features in this update
Among the additions are Shortcuts Automations, and the ability to share your ETA from Apple Maps. The iPhone 11 series gets directionally-aware AirDrop, apparently powered by the new U1 Ultra Wideband chip.
Those who held off on installing iOS 13 last week get much more. Either new version brings Dark Mode, significant Safari enhancements, a Swype-like keyboard, more Memoji, a redesigned Photos app, new options for editing photos and videos, and many other changes. Be sure to read Cult of Mac’s guide to Everything you need to know about iOS 13.
Install iOS 13.1 now
Apple tries to make installing its operating system upgrades a snap. There are two possibilities, including simply connecting the iPhone to a computer running iTunes.
The other option is an over-the-air upgrade, and it’s just as easy. Open the Settings app then go to General > Software Update > Download and Install.
Tablet users can install iPadOS 13.1 instead, as Apple has forked this off from iOS.
