Apple Seeds Third Public Beta of iOS 13.1 and iPadOS to Testers
As we have mentioned earlier, Apple has released the third public beta of iOS 13.1 and iPadOS to testers, Beta testers who are enrolled into Apple's beta testing program will receive the update via OTA mechanism. However, do make sure that your device needs to install the appropriate configuration profile.

iOS 13.1 brings several new features which were previously removed from iOS 13. Some of these features include Shortcuts Automation and more. However, iOS 13.1 brings it back. The feature basically allows you to create personal and home automation from the Shortcuts app. When a certain condition occurs, the action will be performed automatically. Another feature called Share ETA is also available with iOS 13.1. This feature allows you to share the estimated time of arrival with a certain friend or family member.
Apart from this, there are also minor visual tweaks as well. Some of these include the volume indicator when you connect your headphones or speakers as well as Dynamic Wallpapers. The mouse support under accessibility is improved. Other than this, HEVC video encoding is now also supported with alpha channels.
