Major iOS updates tend to come like clockwork, but this year — well, this year has been a little weird. Earlier this month, Apple officially released iOS 13 for iPhones, iPod touches and the like, and all of its new iPhones came with the software already installed. Less than a week later, though, the company released iOS 13.1 and iPadOS, updates that bucked another trend by being shipped a few days ahead of schedule. As a result, many people who installed the first iOS 13 release build probably — hopefully — aren’t using it anymore.

I say “hopefully” because the standard iOS 13 release was a… a bit of a mess. I ran into a handful of bugs while testing the iPhone 11, Pro and Pro Max that, while hardly dealbreakers, seemed seriously out of place for a release as big as this one. Sometimes the camera app wouldn’t correctly launch. Sometimes iOS thought the flashlight was on when it wasn’t. Others have run into more considerable issues, so it’s no wonder Apple wanted to release the iOS 13.1 update ahead of schedule to fix these problems.

That left us in the peculiar position of deciding which version to officially review: The release that set this whole thing in motion, or the release that most people would actually wind up using. Because of Apple’s timing we ultimately decided to wait for 13.1 for completeness’s sake.

From what I’ve been able to tell over the past few days 13.1 has mostly done the trick. The bugs I ran into during my iPhone 11 testing have been ironed out, plus a bunch of others I was lucky enough to avoid. Just check out this changelog: Apple made no fewer than 24 bug fixes, enough to make you wonder if the company would have been better off pushing back the iPhone 11 ship dates. Between iOS 13’s core features and 13.1’s fixes and additions, Apple’s new smartphone software is finally ready to embrace — though no one could blame you for being wary.
