Apple today will release the first public beta of iOS 13.3.1. This comes after yesterday’s release of the first developer beta. iOS 13.3.1 focuses on bug fixes and performance improvements.

Update: iOS 13.3.1 public beta is now available. Apple has also released the first public beta of macOS Catalina 10.15.3 and tvOS 13.3.1.

Although Apple has not mentioned anything, it is very likely that this update has fixed some issues related to Screen Time. Apple confirmed last week that it was working on a fix for an iOS bug that lets kids easily bypass Screen Time Communication Limits.

We’ll have to dive deeper to learn more, and it’s likely that further improvements will come with subsequent iOS 13.3.1 betas.
