    iOS 13.1 Available for download - new option to block annoying spam calls
    As noted, iOS 13.1 is now available for download.

    A new feature of iOS 13 is the ability to block annoying spam calls. It sends them to voicemail where you can remove them.

    I would have preferred if we had the option to kill the calls altogether without sending them to voicemail. But, it's better than what it was before.

    I still recommend using a spam blocking app. I use hiya which so far has worked well.

    I know I don't know. It depends on if there are other options/features that affect the iPad.

    Decided to wait until the 13.1 releases - just upgraded both my iPhone XR & iPad Pro, the latter w/ iPadOS 13.1 - disliked the default 'small' icons on the home screens, so went back to larger ones - going to run 'dark mode' on both for a while, but not sure of its appearance for me?

    As to spam calls, I'm not really getting many (not one in nearly a week) - not sure if the Verizon 'spam feature' is doing its job and/or my number is only a few months old and not known despite robocallers simply using computer generated random phone numbers for their nefarious doings! Dave

    iOS 13.1 was released at the same time for both the iPhone and iPad. The iPad version is known as iPadOS 13.1.

    They were released yesterday.

    Thanks, I didn't know there was an upgrade available for iPad to iPadOS. When I looked earlier (a few days ago) it wasn't available yet.

    I knew because I was beta testing iPadOS 13.1 for around a month before it was released. I had to change my profile from beta to final release to install the update. Our forums look great with the new iPadOS both using the Mac-Forums app or Safari.
