Well I'm running the latest iOS 13.1 on my XS and so far every app, even ones that haven't been updated specifically for ios13 are working...
Developers can update their apps to work with iOS 13.x, but they have to use the SDK from the currently released version of iOS... they can be creative with work-arounds, etc... and not every API call is changed with each new release... so many of the apps will continue to work on the beta releases with minor issues or no issues at all. It all depends on what the app is doing, what APIs it's using and what Apple has done to modify or deprecate those API calls.

I can guarantee you that none of those apps are using the iOS 13.x SDK... Apple will not approve them for release until iOS 13.x is released.

I have a couple of apps that, in iOS12, could open gpx files from the Files app (via the share sheet) or simply clicking on email attachments. At the moment, those apps don't show in the share sheet and although the file icon is the relevant app icon, there's no way to get the app to open the file.

I assume this is one of those "needs to be recompiled against iOS13" or whatever it is app developers do.

I wonder if this could be why I’m not getting push notifications on Instagram?

Links to Twitter in iMessage are no longer opening in Twitter. Instead they're opening in Safari. From what I understand this is a Twitter issue?

Edison Mail is not displaying any badges to reflect unread emails until you go into the app and manually refresh the inbox. Super annoying to not know there are new emails.
 

Just sayin...

I'm on 13.0:
MyFitnessPal - now crashes 1-2 times per day
Google Wifi - loses connection to network several times per use
OpenTable - Very slow to connect to servers
Apple Maps - Very slow to load content, some road names now wrong

The Disney World app still hasn’t been updated, and continues to crash on the new iPhone 11 Pro Max on both iOS 13 and 13.1

I am not getting any notification (instagram, messenger, viber...) after update. I think that app background refresh doesn't work

After updating to iOS13 on the iPhone XR, the bank of America app will not allow you to login. The same password is works on the iMac and iPad but not on the iPhone XR (iOS13).

Something broken with media apps and the Watch? I was playing a podcast through Overcast in my car (Bluetooth not Carplay) but the usual 'now playing' icon didn't appear on my watch.

Running iOS 13 on an XR but watchOS 5.

In 13.1 and a Pro 11, I have an issue with the Home App. With Haptic touch, I press the app icon and choose a scene, it does not launch that scene, but rather just launches the Home app...

Anyone else seeing this?

Yeah, I’m seeing the same thing.

I see Skype for Business is reported as working. The icon has disappeared out of the folder it was in but the phone still thinks it’s installed. I’ve rebooted twice, no joy. How can I uninstall an app that’s in this weird state?!

Time, because it rules EVERYTHING!
You Tube won’t stay in memory no matter what you do, with iOS 12 I could start a video, lock my phone and return to the video later as it would open back to that video. In 13.1 it constantly reloads every time you go back to the app no matter what! In fact I’d say a lot apps are possibly reloading now?
Seems 13.1 has memory management issues.....

If I try to share anything (picture from Photos, link from Safari, etc.) to Outlook using the share sheet, the screen blips like it's trying to send it to Outlook, but then I'm bounced back to the share sheet. Anybody else experiencing this, or able to test iOS 12 vs 13? Trying to figure out if I need to report to Apple or Microsoft.

I'm having a couple issues with Scrivener. When trying to sync with Dropbox, it crashes after working for a minute or two on the "Downloading File List" step. The Settings app also crashes if I try to go into the Scrivener "Sync & Sharing" section. This has happened on both 13 and 13.1.

Snapseed was working on 13 before updating to 13.1, but now will only open my most recent photo, and when I try to open another photo, it gives an error that says "Could not load image."

Reminders - if I add a reminder to my default personal list that isn’t my exchange work list, I don’t see the exchange option to move it to the exchange list anymore

I can’t even add songs to my library or playlist. I click add and they just never show up there. Annoying AF.

BBC Sport app will not play radio/audio in the background for any longer than a minute. If the user remains on the app there are no issues. Using an iPhone 11 Pro Max and issue still persists from original iOS 13 to 13.1.2 even after an app reinstall.

Anyone having problems with Slingplayer since updating? Was fine throughout the beta, but seems like as of 13.1.2 it won’t connect to my Slingbox any longer.
