Re: Apple in general and its devices and operating systems

I did update my iPhone 8 Plus earlier today, after I first backed it up to a computer. That included a WatchOS 6 update, so I also updated my Apple watch.

iOS 13 does not appear available for either my iPad or my iPad Mini, so I'll just wait for 13.1. I did back both of them up so I'm ready.
