Apple first announced the iOS 13 update in June at its annual developer conference.
They made the Beta version available for developers to aid them to prepare their apps for the iOS 13 official release scheduled for 19th September (yesterday)

It offers you a feature to log in to most apps and websites, security shouldn’t be overemphasized, Apple doesn’t joke with its security.
Without much ado, let us go below and install the iOS 13.
Is Installing The iOS 13 Worth It?
If it wasn’t worth it, Apple won’t have given its users the opportunity to install it. Be aware that nothing is perfect, technology is not quite reliable, once in a while, you might come across a bug or two.
If its a common bug, other iPhone users will lay complains and the way to solve it will be available online, if it isn’t,
Apple will definitely be aware of it and in a matter of two to three days, a remedy will be developed.
Come September 24th, Apple plans of giving iOS 13.1, they promised more features, you could wait till its available then get it.
