Apple has mysteriously launched iOS 13.1 beta 1 this Tuesday. And no, that’s not a typo. This release is likely to be a few weeks ahead of the official launch of iOS 13.

There’s no official statement from Apple, as to why they made the decision to move the beta launch of iOS 13.1 before iOS 13, which is set to be released to the public next month.

iOS 13.1 beta

Developers can now test the first beta version of iOS 13. The beta version can be seen as an over-the-air update in Settings > General > Software Update.

According to the Release Notes, the first beta reintroduces Shortcut Automations, Share ETA in Maps, as well as other features, which were removed in iOS 13 beta testing.

Among the UI changes are macOS HomeKit icons, as well as a new volume HUD, which displays if there’s a connected device.

The last iOS 13 beta appeared to have some flaws, and this could be the reason why Apple is already preparing version 13.1 for launch, probably to try and address certain issues of iOS 13.

Developer Steve Troughton-Smith tweeted this on Tuesday:

It is very unlikely that Apple will skip the iOS 13 release entirely. The company will probably remove some features from it and reintroduce them in a later release, after v.13. Another theory is that the company is going to release iOS 13 earlier than planned, so they can release publicly the first point update in September. That being said, the last iOS 13 beta may be the final one.
