The software, which has received numerous developer and public beta updates since it was first previewed adds a handful of new features and improvements over iOS 12, Apple's current-generation software for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. That's the warning being issued to customers of the all-conquering social media platform ahead of imminent upgrades to Android 10 and iOS 13. This Beta promises a few bug fixes and improvements so make sure to update your iPhone or iPod. The iOS 13.1 release will enable the new spatial awareness features for AirDrop on the iPhone 11 trio, which are possible thanks to a new Apple U1 chip.

Android 10 matches Facebook's personal settings, enabling a person to pick whether or not their exact location is seen to Facebook, even when not utilizing the app. One will also be able to check how many times each app has accessed the location information.

In addition to this, Apple will also show the map of where the user's location was tracked.
