FWIW, this is part of the development cycle, at Apple and elsewhere. At some point you have to stop accepting new features or features that just aren't ready. And then you slowly crank down on the riskiness of bug fixes, finally getting down to just the most critical ones. It's risk management, but also looking at stability. And yes, this is frustrating to those developers and QA that want to see a bug fixed, but it doesn't make it. But through being through many of these cycles, I understand it.
In this case, the article says the Shortcuts automations feature was pulled into 13.1. It must have not been ready.
Back around 18 years ago with I believe the MacOS X 10.1 update, things were progressing as expected towards the Golden Master. GM was expected in the next couple days, and it was down to just a handful of bugs being fixed per daily build. All fixes were tightly scrutinized, with I'm sure many at the code review. But then the new build hit kernel panics. Not the stability you were looking for. It turned out to be a 1-keystroke issue, maybe an extra or missing space. No matter....one tiny mistake was suddenly causing kernel panics.
To me that was a big reminder about locking down the development cycle. It is different elsewhere, depending on the methods. At a different company with a constant development cycle for a web based product, it was still a pain but if we hit a problem after releasing it, it wasn't as tough to toss out a new version. And so, especially since this small startup was aiming for speed, things were a lot more fast and loose. We also didn't have too many users, and they were all more technical. But there were a few times we had to push out new versions after the servers would go wild once live and getting more load.
Glad to see that Apple is still on top of risk management with its development cycle.
We have the choice to build this board up, or tear it down. Make the right choice, or don't post here.
To All: Please remember to keep non-Apple SPECIFIC political stuff out of the daily thread. Post it over in the Dungeon, if you really want to discuss it with others on the AAPL Finance Board.

i'am running the IOS 13 beta on both Primary iPhone and iPad no ill effects! Have not come across one App. that I use on a regular basis that does not work. If anything Mail seems a little slow to connect sometimes but does work other than that seems solid and ready for GM.
Update:Looks like Apple has just also released a Public Beta of IOS 13.1.....

mercel: It's been a long strange trip - good to see you're still around (and in AAPL -my assumption).

sponge: Regarding the future of VR, I think it will be huge. I was a gamer when I was in college. But as an adult I lost interest. Last fall I flew up to visit my son at college and check out his new Vive set up. After playing with it for the weekend, I was
