After launching iOS 13, Apple announced to launch its new version of iOS 13.1 and for the first time iPadOS 13.
Unlike iOS 13, iOS 13.1 doesn’t get any new special features, but you can expect lots of bugs fixed and some performance improvements.
This year is the first time Apple officially split the two different platforms apart, creating iPadOS as distinct from iOS for iPhone.
That presumably helped Apple delay, since the two are now separate products.
