Apple Releases iOS 13.1 to Fix All the Bugs in 13.0


Apple has begun rolling out iOS 13.1 to all compatible iPhone and iPod touch owners as a free update to last week’s release of 13.0. The update is geared toward fixing most (if not all) the major bugs users have pegged version 13.0 as having. During my early beta testing of the update, I noticed most app crashes and weird glitches to be next to nonexistent.


If you’ve been holding off from upgrading to iOS 13 until today (a.k.a. the Right Thing to Do), you may be curious as to what the update features. Here’s a breakdown of some of the perks you get.
