Engadget Review

Apple’s latest iOS update packs plenty of important changes to device usability and privacy, though a buggy initial launch caught many users off guard. A dark mode, helpfully redesigned apps and Voice Control add offer more flexibility out of the box, and now that iOS 13.1 has filed down a lot of the initial release’s rough edges, it’s finally worth installing.
