iOS 13, iPadOS Release Date

The next iOS and the new iPadOS is scheduled for release on 19 September 2019. This will be followed up at the end of the month with another update that will provide some of the features that had been previously promised but failed to make the final version of iOS13.

According to Apple: “iOS is the world’s most advanced mobile operating system. With iOS 13, you can now use cutting-edge technologies to build unparalleled augmented reality experiences with ARKit 3, Reality Composer, and RealityKit. Core ML 3 and the new Create ML app help you deliver personalized app experiences quickly and easily with industry-leading, on-device machine learning. Users can sign in to your apps with their Apple ID. And you can take advantage of the latest improvements to Siri Shortcuts, camera APIs, and other exciting technologies.”

Also, “iPadOS features additional technologies that take advantage of the unique functionality of iPad using the iOS SDK. With iPadOS, your iPad apps can now deliver multi-window experiences, add full drawing experiences for Apple Pencil, and contribute fonts for systemwide use”

As well as the release of the new mobile OS’s there are some new iPhones being released as well. Check out Apple’s site for the details at

Catalina will be released some time in October. An article on this is at https://www.cnet.com/how-to/macos-catalina-will-ship-in-october-but-you-can-get-ready-now/

Apple issues second iOS 13, iPadOS 13, tvOS 13, watchOS 6, macOS 10.15 betas

The new builds can be acquired by developers in the beta as an over-the-air update on devices enrolled into the program, or via the Apple Developer Center. Public beta versions of each operating system normally arrive a few days after the developer betas, though so far they have not been made available for the milestone versions, and are made available via the Apple Beta Software Program website.

Information about the new features of the new operating systems for the different platforms is available on a variety of sources such as
AppleInsider, Catalina Preview , Apple Developer - Beta 2 Release Notes as well as a host of other locations such as TechRadar that reported on the WWDC 2019 event.

One of the many significant changes are with the MacOS which will lose support for 32 bit apps and the iPadOS will have much better functionality with using storage devices for files. Something that has been a long time coming but most probably held back to avoid cannibalising the Mac sales.
