Apple is not waiting for the launch of iOS 13 to begin trying its first huge update. The tech behemoth has posted developer beta for iOS 13.1 (in addition to a corresponding beta for iPadOS 13.1). It is the first time an iOS point launch has been in a dev beta before its original edition is available. You will not trip over yourself to download this unless you are an early bird, but the early inclusions recommend this is partially about restoring functions that were not quite set for 13.0.
Most particularly, the 13.1 beta reinstates Automations inside Shortcuts. Maps, in the meantime, has retained the choice to share your estimated time of arrival with friends. You will also see minor inclusions such as fresh HomeKit icons, a new AirPods volume indicator, and the choice of mapping 3D Touch functions with a right mouse button.
It is not cure why Apple is launching a 13.1 beta so early, even though it might have a lot on its plate apart from the normal September event, comprising the TV+ release, new iPads, and Apple Arcade. It might need to make sure that the required software for all this is in good shape as soon as possible rather than waiting till after the launch of iOS 13 to start testing.
On a related note, Vizio earlier declared that smart TV users can log in for a beta for its update of SmartCast 3.0, which it will launch out this winter, bringing with it support for Apple HomeKit and AirPlay 2 to entitled smart TVs. The firm has started signups for the beta, which will be made accessible in quarter one of this year, and will be made more broadly accessible in an upgrade for SmartCast Displays and TVs during the quarter two of 2019.
