  • It also fixes a bug with location permission that changed the privacy setting to “Ask Next Time” if a user had selected never to share their location detail for an app.
  • iOS 13.1 brings the ETA feature to Maps which allows the iPhone user to share their expected time of arrival with their family and friends right from within the apps.
