Today is Update Day — at least for iOS 13 and watchOS 6. iPadOS is a holdout, along with macOS Catalina (and tvOS 13 so far). And it turns out we will have to wait a little under a week before we see iPadOS arrive for the tablet lineup.
Following the public release of iOS 13 and watchOS 6, Apple has confirmed (via MacRumors) that iOS 13.1 (the first major update for the mobile OS) and the first release of iPadOS will happen on Tuesday, September 24.
This is actually a bump up. Apple initially stated that iPadOS and iOS 13.1 would arrive on Monday, September 30. So for anyone who is eagerly anticipating the release of iPadOS, you’ll get it just under a week sooner.
iPadOS will bring with it a variety of changes to fit the bigger screens, including a redesigned Home screen, better multitasking options, and much more. That includes all the changes included with iOS 13.
Meanwhile, iOS 13.1 will bring with it new features to iOS 13, including Siri Shortcuts Automations and the ability to share your ETA within the Apple Maps app.
Meanwhile, tvOS 13 will arrive before the end of September.
