Apple plans to present iOS 13 at its WWDC (World Wide Developers Conference) conference in 2019. The event will be held between June 3 and June 6 at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California.
As has been usual throughout this last decade, Apple will present its new versions of software macOS 10.15, watchOS 6, tvOS 13 and iOS 13.
In the case of iOS 13, we already know many of the novelties that will be presented at WWDC 2019, and some of them are fascinating. In this article, we will talk about all of them.
These are the confirmed news of iOS 13
With the development of iOS 12, Apple wanted to focus all its efforts on improving the performance and stability of its operating system. Especially after the great controversies raised by the iOS 10 and iOS 11 versions. That is why, this time, it is likely that iOS 13 comes loaded with much more abundant and spectacular news such as the ones below.
Apple is going to implement a new button for the Control Center of iOS 13 to activate a Sleep Mode that will enable the Do Not Disturb feature, mute notifications and darken the lock screen.
In the middle of April, there was a massive filtering of news on iOS 13 in which Steve Troughton-Smith revealed that the new version of the mobile operating system for iPhone and iPad will have the coveted dark mode, as well as improved control of the multitasking and other features such as the redesign of the volume HUD .
We have, not months, but years waiting and watching rumors circulate about the dark mode in iOS. But, until now, it is only possible to activate the intelligent color inversion to have a similar function in our mobile devices.
This mode will change the color tones of the iPhone screen, iPad and iPod touch to darker colors (gray and black) to accommodate vision and make it easier to sleep.
It is expected that iOS 13 will arrive with new Animojis and, of course, with new additions to the Memojis’ accessories. In fact, recently it was revealed that iOS 13 would introduce Animojis from the emojis of the cow, the octopus, the mouse and the emoji in human form. But in this case, there is nothing confirmed.
An improved multitasking system on iPad
Apple will focus its efforts on further improving the multitasking system of compatible iPad models. The company wants its iPad to be able to replace a computer, and its software engineers will work hard on that aspect.
Applications can have multiple windows and can be moved around the entire screen. To better organize the Split View Mode, the panels will be of different colors.
Compatibility with mouse
This will be one of the most expected improvements by users. To improve the multitasking experience on the iPad, Apple will offer mouse support on iOS 13. Probably through the USB-C port of the iPad Pro. Without a doubt, it is one of the most exciting news.
New gestures for the keyboard
The company of the bitten apple will include a series of tactile gestures that will improve the user experience of its virtual keyboard in iOS 13.
These tactile keyboard gestures allow you to slide three fingers on the screen to the left to undo (and to the right to redo) an action. In addition, the option of sliding your finger on the keys to form words will be provided.
In reference to the native navigation application of iOS 13, it will also feature very interesting new features. Safari will show a notification to switch to the desktop version of a page as soon as it detects that the mobile version has been loaded.
On the other hand, Apple is testing to include a download manager in Safari. Although this does not imply that it will be possible to download any file format. The sending of contents of the button to share will also be improved.
Redesign of Reminders, Health, Messages and more
Apple is going to renew its Health application with a new category for the health of the ears. In addition, the Cupertino firm will completely redesign its Reminders app and will include the ability to create an account with name and profile picture in Messages.
Apple Books will also be improved with a reward system and a progress meter. The HomeKit Home app will offer special functions for security cameras and the Screen Time app will allow parental control to limit who the children have contact with.
