It seems that Apple has picked up pace and We already have a new beta of iOS 13 and iPadOS available, every week we are having a new update and the official launch is getting closer. Rumors indicate that we will see a keynote on September 10 in which the iPhone 11 will be presented and with total probability once it ends the final versions of iOS 13 and iPadOS will be officially launched.


As a curiosity, the beta is from iOS 13.1, not beta number 9 from iOS 13, it seems that Apple will keep two beta versions of iOS 13. Being already a few weeks after its launch these new betas are already completely stable Y Apple It is only solving small errors that may appear but also adds new features such as activating an improvement in the speed of the apps.
