- Share ETA in Apple Maps is also in iOS 13.1, letting you share your live estimated arrival time with another person so they can see where you are in their Apple Maps app.
- Shortcuts Automations has be re-added to the app after it was removed during beta testing this summer. This lets you create shortcuts that automatically run in the background.
- Other features of iOS 13 have been tweaked, like Fonts settings, a Personal Hotspot page, beta app indicators, and more.
