Apple To Release IOS 13.1 And IPadOS Six Days Ahead Of Schedule On September 24th [UPD]
On top of all that, when Apple announced iOS 13 would be available on September 19th, they simultaneously announced that iOS 13.1 and iPadOS would be available just 11 5 days later on September 30th 24th. iPadOS will never see a public release of 13.0, instead it will pass Go and collect a higher version number with 13.1.
Apple to release iOS 13.1 and iPadOS six days ahead of schedule on September 24th
I'm grateful for this warning. I'll definitely wait for 13.1.I can't understand why Apple went ahead and released version 13.0 with these bugs. I know, I know, there are often problems with new iOS versions, but this time there's a later version already ready. Why release a version with known problems for which there's a solution ready?

Is Apple trying to set a record for the highest number of updates within a two-week period? You wouldn't be blamed for thinking so. Just eight days ago, Apple publicly released iOS 13.0 for all compatible iPhones. Then, just five days later, Apple seeded iOS 13.1 with 22 new features to boot. Now, just three days into 13.1's tenure, Apple has released yet another update, iOS 13.1.1.
With iOS 13.1 already publicly set for release just 5 days after 13.0 releases, it doesn't seem unreasonable to hypothesize that Apple has faced some challenges with the iOS 13 development process on a more general level. With this in mind, if you are willing to hold off upgrading until the release of iOS 13.1 on 24 September, we recommend that you do so; as it is our expectation that iOS 13.1 will provide a vastly superior experience to that of iOS 13.0 for blind and low vision users.
One clarification for those who are struggling with Apple's schedule: iOS 13.0 will come out on September 19 for iPhone and iPod Touch (the latter only the 7th generation released earlier this year). iPadOS will come out on September 30 and will be the version 13.1 version, essentially iOS with all the cool iPad features, and iOS 13.0 will be updated to 13.1, which will then be roughly on the same feature and bug fix level. I am currently testing the 13.1 betas, and the build numbers are the same on both iPhone and iPad.
