    Has anyone found anything at all that is useful in iOS 13:1 ? I’ve spent all afternoon playing with this and the iPod version, and I have not. Even the dark mode does nothing as far as I can see, it does not appear to be much different from the earlier ugly workaround.

    Please explain yourself, not useful. How is dark mode no different from what ugly workaround?

    I'm actually enjoying iOS 13. I tried Dark Mode at first and then switched to "light until sunset". That works so much better for me. There are many other features that I am enjoying, and I imagine some that I haven't even discovered yet.

    Being able to download items directly from safari is useful enough for me.

    It’s an operating system update. No big deal.

    To start; I said does nothing useful, not does nothing.As I have a black background anyway, dark mode makes no difference to the appearance of the home pages,does make Apple maps hideous.
    it is a matter of supreme indifference to me what colour my contacts list is, messages look a lot better in light mode Safari does not change,etc. My fingers are to big to use slide mode to type,(and I notice it does not work on here).
    The old workaround(colour inversion).
    An interesting sidenote is that the dropdown text message notification is now a very nasty shade of, shall we say weak orangeade ?
    As I said, nothing useful so far...

    What is considered useful is subjective. You know that and therefore, if you haven’t found anything useful then so be it. I find the built-in QuickPath swipe method, Dark mode, always on desktop mode, and the new camera Modesto be quite useful, but that’s Just_Me_D.

    Yeah, opinions. They differ per person.
    I’m not a fan of Dark Mode either, but frankly, can’t really reflect to your negativism about it.

    These new Memoji things that keep reappearing no matter how many times I hit the recents tab are the only thing about 13.1 that I find annoying.

    It’s all about personal taste. What’s useful to one person might not be for another person.

    I find Dark Mode useful. I think Quick Path probably could be once I get better using it.

    Exactly, that’s not what I’m arguing. I’m arguing the tone it’s written in. It’s unnecessarily harsh.

    Choices and opinions. Actually I liked iOS 13, always remembering that's an Apple system update, so to expect a completely new revamp is completely out of question. But, as I found myself a little bit tired of the UI, just changed my iPhone X by a Note 10+. As somebody said: thanks God we have choice. Not so much as I would like, but some choices.

    Why does desktop mode not work on iMore? It never does. I hate mobile view. It leaves too much out. I got the blog site to desktop, but when I try to get anything else, it switches back to mobile view. I have to assume iMore simply doesn't allow it. And I wonder why not?

    Create a new thread in the right forum and ask the admins. I’m sure they’ll come up with a satisfactory answer.

    I love the ability to share ETA from maps with people. I've already used it multiple times, and I can see my kids using that to communicate with me.

    It works for me. Turn the device to landscape mode.

    I haven't even bothered to install iOS 13.1 yet. Or iPadOS either. Maybe in a couple months when the bugs are worked out.

    Or maybe not. Nothing in iPadOS interests me, so I may just stay on 12.4.1. for a while. Everything works fine as it is.

    Have you not seen any of the videos highlighting the new functionality of iPadOS? There are a ton of new features!

    That doesn't look like desktop. Looks same as mobile, just a bit bigger.
    This is desktop I get in the Puffin browser.


    Can you get this on what you showed?

    Yes. As I said, not interested. If I wanted a Mac laptop, I would buy a Mac laptop. I want an iPad.

    I would rather install iOS 13 on my iPads instead of iPadOS.

    Well... So I'm really sorry, but you're out of luck here. Or you update to iPadOS or you stay as you are. Or you sell your iPad and buy an Android or Windows tablet, or, maybe, an iPhone 11 Pro Max. Lots of options, but no luck in having iOS 13 in your iPad, unfortunately.

    I am on the 8 plus, hope to upgrade at some point. In the meantime, iOS 13 is like having a new phone, without getting a new phone.
    So far I am very happy with the software upgrade, especially dark mode on Apple Music.
