Apple Releases iOS 13.1 Developer Beta for iPhone 11, 11 Pro, and Pro Max
Apple today seeded a beta of iOS 13.1 that's designed to work with the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max. The new beta can be installed over-the-air after installing the proper profile from the Apple Developer Center. With the new iOS 13.1 beta, the new iPhone models released tomorrow will be able to be updated to iOS 13.1. That will allow beta testers who have already upgraded their prior devices to iOS 13.1 to use an iCloud backup to do a data transfer. An iPhone backup taken on an iPhone running iOS 13.1 cannot be transferred to an iPhone running iOS 13, which means those who have upgraded will need to also upgrade their new 2019 iPhones before being able to restore from a backup. iOS 13.1 introduces several features that were announced at WWDC but were removed from iOS 13 over the beta testing period. Shortcuts Automations is back, allowing Shortcuts users to create personal and home automations from the Shortcuts app to have actions performed automatically when specific conditions occur. Share ETA, a major maps feature, is also available once again in iOS 13.1. With Share ETA, you can share your estimated time of arrival to a location with a friend or family member. Other new features include new icons on the volume indicator when headphones or speakers are connected (with icons for AirPods, Beats headphones, and HomePod), more detailed HomeKit icons in the Home app, and updates to Dynamic Wallpapers. Mouse support, an accessibility option in iOS 13, has been improved in iOS 13.1 allowing a long press or 3D Touch to be mapped to the right click function of the mouse. Reading goals now include PDFs, Nike+ is now just Nike, and iOS 13.1 supports HEVC video encoding with alpha channels. There are some other smaller changes in iOS 13.1, which are outlined in our original iOS 13.1 article. iOS 13.1 is set to launch on Monday, September 30.

Scientists invented an electric baseball hat to reverse male baldness
An international team of researchers just developed the most sophisticated treatment for male baldness ever: a hat that covers up your hairless head. Wait, there’s more. It also contains a self-actuating electrical ‘patch’ that stimulates the scalp, regenerates damaged tissue, and regrows hair thicker and quicker than pharmacological treatments. Researchers from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, and Shenzhen University actually developed the electrical stimulation device not the hat. What’s amazing about it is that it’s small enough to fit inside a regular baseball hat, doesn’t use batteries, and actually works. The team conducted… This story continues at The Next Web

Apple Now Planning to Release iOS 13.1 and iPadOS on September 24
Apple will release the upcoming iOS 13.1 update and iPadOS on September 24 instead of September 30 as previously planned, according to updated information on its iOS 13 and iPadOS preview pages. Following the company's September 10 event, Apple initially said that iOS 13.1 and iPadOS would come on Monday, September 30, but the updates will now be just under a week earlier. The earlier release of iPadOS will allow iPad users to get iOS 13 features on their iPads quicker, with access to Apple Arcade, Dark Mode, and more, while the iOS 13.1 release will bring missing iOS 13 features like Shortcuts Automations and Share ETA. Apple hasn't made it clear if there will be an iPadOS 13 release, but given that the update is coming on the same day as iOS 13.1, the first version of iPadOS may be iPadOS 13.1.Related Roundups: iOS 13, iPadOSThis article, "Apple Now Planning to Release iOS 13.1 and iPadOS on September 24" first appeared on MacRumors.comDiscuss this article in our forums

Apple pushes up iOS 13.1 and iPadOS to September 24th
Photo by Amelia Holowaty Krales / The Verge iOS 13.0 has just arrived, but Apple is already bumping up the release date for its first big update: both iOS 13.1 and iPadOS will now be released on September 24th instead of the originally announced September 30th release date. The company confirmed these revised dates to The Verge. iOS 13.1 will bring several features that didn’t make the cut for the initial iOS 13 release, including automated Siri Shortcut actions, a share ETA feature in Apple Maps, and data separation for enterprise devices. More importantly, Apple promises that 13.1 will bring general bug fixes to iOS 13, which the current software could definitely benefit from (our review of the current 13.0 software notes a litany of issues we encountered while testing the new update.) Other features announced for iOS 13 — like AirPod sharing and new HomeKit features — won’t ship with iOS 13.1 either, but they are promised for sometime later this fall. iPadOS is this year’s software update for Apple’s iPad tablets, unlike iOS, which will remain the software for iPhone and iPod touch devices. This marks the first time that Apple is forking its mobile operating systems. Going forward, iPadOS will be developed as a separate branch of software that shares a common base, similar to the existing watchOS and tvOS platforms.
