Apple has finally unveiled iOS 13 today at WWDC 2019. The update brings a refinement to iPhones and also brings the most anticipated feature – Dark Mode.
Here’s what’s new in iOS 13.
iOS 13 brings performance improvements just like every other iOS update. But this time, the apps will launch 2x faster than before. This will also work on older devices like the iPhone 6s and iPhone 7.
It seems like Apple has finally learned from its past mistakes where it slowed down older devices with iOS updates. Apple also promises 30% faster unlock speeds using FaceID.
Yes. Finally, dark mode arrives to the iOS. iOS 13 brings a system wide dark mode to almost all the system as well as other apps. Even the notifications and the dock get new dark hues to go with it.
As common as it sounds, swiping keyboard finally comes to iOS. Previously, it was available via third-party keyboard apps such as Swiftkey keyboard. But now, you can use it on your default keyboard.
New Reminders App
Apple is giving an all new update to the Reminders app by building it from the scratch. There are new “Today,” “Scheduled,” “Flagged,” and “All” filtering options for sorting your tasks, along with a whole new visual look. There’s also some AI integration which let’s Reminders automatically suggest when you’d like to be reminded. You’ll also be able to tag contacts and be reminded when you open up their thread in Messages.
Privacy and Security were the big parts of WWDC today. You can now choose to give your location data to an app “just once,” preventing it from constantly being able to ping your location when you’re using it.
Apple is also launching a new “Sign in with Apple” feature, which it’ll be making available to developers for logging into apps and services.
Users will be able to log into Face ID and create a new account for a service “without revealing any personal information.”
That’s it for the quick update on iOS 13. Keep following us for more WWDC updates.
