Apple updated iOS

Apple UpdatesAt 19th September, Apple released major update of iOS – iOS 13. Users of iPads had to wait till 24th September for iPadOS release, a fork of iOS dedicated for iPads. Mac users have to wait to unspecified date in October for macOS Catalina. It’s strange why Apple decided so. For example, it causes problems with new Reminders format compatibility. With releasing iPadOS, Apple also released iOS 13.1 for iPhones. Since this iOS 13.1 update, owners of the newest model of iPod touch (7th generation) can upgrade to iOS 13 for the first time, because original iOS 13 was not available for iPods touch.

This new iOS release brings some features that were removed during iOS 13 beta testing, like Shortcuts Automations. Also feature called “Share ETA”, a feature removed during beta testing, lets users share their estimated time of arrival to a location with a friend or family member, allowing the friend or family member to follow along with the trip.

The volume indicator has been tweaked. If you have certain headphones or audio devices connected (AirPods, Powerbeats Pro, HomePod, and Beats headphones) there are special indicators that feature a unique icon that matches your listening device. There’s also a special icon for when two headphones are connected to an iPhone or iPad. If you have Beats headphones with an H1 and W1 chip, this iOS update brings support for audio sharing feature.

This update also brings improved HomeKit icons, which feature a much more detailed, realistic designs, new Reading Goals options for PDF and some other minor updates. Full release notes are below:
