Apple surprised us yesterday afternoon publishing the first beta of iOS 13.1, at first we all thought it was a mistake since the final version of iOS 13 is not yet public, however shortly after it was confirmed that it was not a bug and that both betas will coincide in time, although we do not know if we will see more betas of iOS 13 before its final launch.
Being a “.1” version, this beta includes some interesting news and returns some functions removed in previous betas.
Everything new you’ll find in iOS 13.1
This is a version that will not be released until several weeks, so Apple Pepe still adds many improvements, for now, this is what we have found.
Volume Slider Improvements
It is one of the main improvements of iOS 13, the indicator that appears when we raise or lower the volume of the iPhone or iPad no longer appears in the middle, now it is on the side and is touch. With iOS 13.1 we will now see a small icon depending on which device we are modifying the volume.
For example, if we have connected AirPods, its icon will appear, just like with the Beats headphones. The same happens when we increase the volume of Apple TV or a call, we will have a small icon that will show us this information.
Share arrival to Maps
It is a function that was available in the first betas of iOS 13 but that disappeared some versions ago, now it returns and in this way we can share a route that we are doing with Maps with any of our contacts, so you will know at all times where we are And when will we arrive?
New dynamic wallpapers
For several versions, since iOS 7 if I remember correctly, iOS includes a series of dynamic wallpapers with colored circles. In iOS 13.1 Apple has renewed its collection by adding new wallpapers that will also be available on all devices.
New widget that shows the battery of a controller or controller
One of the novelties of iOS 13 is its compatibility with the PS4 controller and Xbox One, now we have available the percentage of battery that is left to an external controller from the battery widget.
Another important news of iOS 13 and iPadOS is its compatibility with a mouse. We could already buy how this novelty worked and now thanks to iOS 13.1 we will have interesting improvements. The secondary click has been enabled to function as a touch with 3D Touch or press and hold.
These have been the main novelties of iOS 13.1, but there are other smaller improvements that this update also includes:
- The Automation of the Shortcuts app is available again.
- New HomeKit icons.
- Small improvements in Apple Music.
- Beta apps now have a yellow circle in front of the name.
- iOS 13.1 adds HEVC video encoding.
- The Apple Watch app Nike + Run Club is now called Nike Run Club.
- The weather widget icons are now bigger.
As we see iOS 13.1 arrives with important developments, although it still has several weeks to come to light, it will be the first major update of iOS 13. We all expect Apple to send invitations to the iPhone 11 keynote at any time and will be after the presentation when iOS 13 and ipadOS are officially launched.
