Apple yesterday launched the first beta for developers of iPadOS and iOS 13.1, something that caught by surprise since the final version of iOS 13 is not yet available, because expected to arrive in the coming weeks coinciding with the presentation of the new iPhone.
Now, a day later, the Cupertino have also released the first public beta of iPadOS and iOS 13.1, so that all interested users can try the news included in this latest update in the testing phase. Next to it, beta 7 for macOS Catalina developers has also arrived.
What brings back the first beta of iPadOS and iOS 13.1
This first beta of iPadOS and iOS 13.1 includes features announced during WWDC 2019 but, for some reason, were eliminated in the preliminary versions, such as sharing the estimated time of arrival at a location on Apple Maps to our contacts, Siri shortcut automation and new icons on the volume indicator when we connect headphones or speakers (AirPods, Beats and HomePod), as MacRumors collects.
In addition, one of the most anticipated functions of this update is improved, the mouse. Although it is an accessibility option aimed at users with some kind of problem that can not manipulate touch screens, any user can use it. In iOS 13.1, you can configure a long press or 3D Touch on the right mouse button.
According to the macOS Catalina beta 7 for developers, no significant changes have been found, so it may be an update to improve performance and polish errors.
