After confusing people yesterday with the release of iOS 13.1 developer beta, today iOS 13.1 public beta 1 is available.
Beta 1 of iOS 13.1 and iPadOS 13.1 include a handful of features that were removed from earlier iOS 13 and ipadOS 13 betas, most notably enhanced automation with Shortcuts. The testing of beta versions of iOS 13.1 and iPadOS 13.1 may suggest that iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 have been finalized.
Once the public betas wind down, I like to delete my public beta profile so I can get the official iOS release. If you’d like to do the same, instead of waiting for the official iOS 13.1 release, I suggest you delete the profile in Settings > General > Profiles.

One thought on “Apple Releases iOS 13.1 Public Beta 1”
You have to wonder if new iPhones might launch with 13.1 given how badly the public betas backfired this year. After the public relations triumph of 2018’s public beta, 2019 has been a disaster. Not that there’s ANY reason to believe 13.1.x is any better than 13.0.x. There will just be less time to find all the issues before launch… and that’s got to be good, right?? Apple’s notorious hubris just gets more unbelievable. Perhaps it really is time for a purge of top management (there’s only 5 of them, it’s not like it would be that difficult).
