iOS 13.1 and iPadOS updates now rolling out


Just a few days after iOS users got a major update in iOS 13, it’s time for them to update once again.

Apple today released iOS 13.1 to the iPhone. This update includes some new features, like Shortcuts Automations and Share ETA in Apple Maps. It’s likely that there are some bug fixes and performance improvements from iOS 13 in there, too.

Also rolling out today is an update to iPadOS. This update is big for iPads because it brings with it all of the features of last week’s iOS 13 update as well as some other iPad-specific features. With the update to iPadOS, iPad owners can expect things like an improved home screen that’ll let you fit more apps at once and the ability to pin your Today View widgets.

There are some input improvements in iPadOS, too, like a redesigned tool palette for Apple Pencil, new text editing gestures, and new keyboard shortcuts for physical keyboards, and Apple has added font management to this update, too. iPad owners will also appreciate the updated Files app, which has an improved design and now supports external hard drives, SD card readers, and USB drives.

Other notable improvements coming with iPadOS include a better Safari browser with a download manager, Slide Over and Split View improvements, a floating keyboard that’ll let you shrink your keyboard and move it wherever you’d like, and a system-wide Dark Mode.

If you’ve got an iPhone or iPad, you can grab your device’s update by going into Settings > General > Software Update. While you’re waiting for the update to download and install, you can peruse the full iOS 13.1 changelog below.


iOS 13.1 includes bug fixes and improvements, including AirDrop with Ultra Wideband technology on iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max, suggested automations in the Shortcuts app, and the ability to share ETA in Maps.
