New Features iOS 13.1
iOS 13.1 brings several new features that were previously removed from iOS 13. Some of these features include shortcut automation and more. However, iOS 13.1 brings it back. The feature basically allows you to create personal and home automation from the Shortcuts application. 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 relative.
IOS 13.1 is to seemingly restore the features that were initially available in iOS 13 but were later removed in the beta test process. This includes things like shortcut automation and ETA Share functionality in Apple Maps.
