Update: iOS 13.1 and iPadOS 13.1 developer beta 2 now available, as well as tvOS 13 beta 9. Apple is also releasing iOS 13.1 and iPadOS 13.1 public beta 2 today.

Apple will release the second developer beta of iOS 13.1 today. This comes after Apple kicked off the iOS 13.1 beta testing process last week.

Apple’s public beta builds should follow at a later date after the latest developer beta has been tested in the wild.

The focus of iOS 13.1 is adding back features that were removed from iOS 13 beta testing, such as Shortcuts Automations and Share ETA in Maps. Both of those features are present in iOS 13.1.

This does not mean that Apple is skipping the release of iOS 13 entirely. We still expect iOS 13 to be released to the public later this month, with iOS 13.1 to follow sometime down the line.

As we dive deeper into iOS 13.1, we’ll be sure to update with what has changed from the first beta. You can let us know of any changes you spot down in the comments or on Twitter, @9to5Mac.
