Here are expected iOS 13 features, beta release, download info and more that you need to know about ahead of its unveiling.
Are we all excited for Apple’s maiden unveiling of iOS 13? Of course, we are! With WWDC just around the corner, developers from all over the world will descend on California to not only spend a week discussing problems with Apple’s engineers but also getting the first glimpse and hands-on experience of iOS 13. Around this time twelve months ago, Apple used its annual Worldwide Developers Conference to reveal iOS 12 to the world.
As we now know, that iteration of iOS was predominantly focused on stability and usability improvements and didn’t really concentrate on earth-shattering features or functionality additions. That may have served its purpose at that time but device owners are now crying out for change and we’re hoping that iOS 13 will deliver. So, what do we currently know about iOS 13?
First of all, there’s the stunning Dark Mode that many have talked about over the years. iOS 13 is said to have a system-wide Dark Mode which looks and functions very similar to the change introduced with macOS Mojave. This should look glorious across all devices but will be particularly prominent on OLED-based displays.
Apple is also said to be bringing a number of new gestures to the table with iOS 13, including a new Undo/Redo gesture involving a three-finger action as well as a set of new gestures designed to increase productivity across the firmware.
Apple has placed a lot of importance on multitasking in iOS over the years and will continue that with iOS 13 for those in possession of iPad Pro. It also seems that USB mouse support will be coming to iPad Pro with the unveiling of iOS 13, albeit as an Accessibility feature. With that said, even if it is an accessibility feature, we can imagine most genuine “pro” users activating and making use of USB mouse support should it be offered.
Smaller but notable improvements include a revamp for the extremely annoying and intrusive volume HUD, and enhanced Safari experience which should hopefully bring a better experience for all users, new Animoji characters and even an improved Mail app. Apple is also expected to take a long hard look at various other system apps, including Files, Reminders, and make stark improvements where it deems necessary.
As for when we can expect to see iOS 13? Well, developers will get an initial preview during WWDC next month and will be able to download and install pre-release beta seeds from then. The public can expect a launch in September.
