iOS 13 is finally out. The new mobile operating system, available for the iPhone 6s and newer models, enhances privacy with the new "Sign in to Apple" feature for apps and some extensive updates to the ever-improving Health App.
Also in the performance improvements Apple has made great progress. Face recognition is now 30 percent faster. The number of downloads from the App Store is reduced by 50 percent and the number of updates by 60 percent. The startup speed of the app in iOS 13 seems to be twice as high.
But what about the new features? Here we introduce the new iOS 13 features that will change your iPhone.
. 1 Dark Mode
Ah, dark mode, one of the most noticeable iOS updates was apparently inevitable. As we reported in March, the Dark Mode, a battery-saver chiaroscuro color scheme that is aesthetically pleasing and potentially eye-friendly (though not scientifically proven), is currently in vogue.
iOS Dark Mode This includes the lock screen, wallpaper, widgets, Apple News, calendars, notes, messages, music, maps, and photos (including the sharing sheet), and Apple may not be the first, but it looks great on everyone Case pretty.
It switches to dark mode for Android phones, Microsoft Outlook, Reddit, YouTube, Gmail, Pocket, Reddit, Safari and Apple's MacOS 10.14. Apple introduces the dark mode for iOS 13 to simplify the night view: you can turn it on and off in the Settings app or turn it on at certain times of the day.
. 2 Revised Map App
Apple Maps was created from scratch and collects land and air data in the United States. The new card will be launched in late 2019 in the US and later in the rest of the world. The new Binoculars button gives you a Street View-style "all-around" window that provides a 3D view of the location with fluid movement as you move. Apple has also added favorites and collections to store photos in places.
. 3 Siri Enhancements
Last year, Siri received shortcuts, a feature that took you directly to a specific part of an app when you said a key phrase. Since then, Apple has reportedly expanded its Siri team and updated its language assistant for 2019. For iOS 13, there is a new My Shortcuts screen that contains suggestions based on your habits.
Siri's voice has changed as well. It is now completely generated by the Neural Text To Speech software and no longer by clips from actors who speak. Apple says it's more natural with longer, more complex expressions.
For AirPod users, Siri can announce messages from the News app or third-party apps using SiriKit. There's a new one-touch audio-sharing feature and a handoff feature that lets you switch between AirPods and HomePod using NFC. Siri now works with live radio (actually 100,000 radio stations) and Pandora and Waze in CarPlay mode.
. 4 A Smarter Photo App
Photos provide portrait lighting controls that smooth the skin, brighten the eyes, and perform image enhancement with a new slider for highlights, shadows, contrast, saturation, auto-enhancement, and more Video editing available – filters, rotation, cropping, noise reduction, hue and more. The app can kill duplicates and resolve management images of vouchers and so on. A new Photos tab creates visually appealing layouts of your snapshots in days, months, and years.
. 5 Completely Redesigned Reminder App
The reminder app has been redesigned with new sections: Today all tasks, scheduled tasks and marked tasks are done. There is a quick launch bar and smart lists. If you mark a person in a reminder the next message, an in-app note prompts you to have a running project that you want to talk about mentioning it.
. 6 New Features for iMessage, Mail, and Notes
iMessage now displays a profile picture (including emoji and memoji) and the display name. Memoji offers some new options for personalizing make-up and accessories as well as Memoji stickers with automatically created packages. They are available on all devices with A9 chip or higher. There is a new Swiftkey keyboard called QuickPath.
Mail has new text formatting controls, including support for rich styles and muted threads. Notes gets a fresh gallery view, view-only collaboration, and improved search and folder management.
. 7 Extensive Updates to the Health App
The Health App now provides a more comprehensive track of menstrual cycles, including periodic flow rates, symptoms and tracking of fertile windows.
There's a new summary view and auto-generated highlights that let you use machine learning to quickly display health data over time, including post-workout heart rate and mindfulness. Apple reiterated that you can manage which apps you share your Apple Health data with. If you have an Apple Watch with watchOS 6, you can also see which activity trends Apple is calling for metrics such as downtime and walking speed on your iPhone.
. 8 Big Data Protection Upgrades
Privacy is one of Apple's unique selling points. Therefore, iOS 13 offers numerous features to improve data protection. When sharing your location, you can share your location "just once" for an app and ask the app for it next time it wants permission again. For on-going distribution, Apple announces that it provides background tracking reports, closing the door for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth tracking.
Apple has its own "Login with Apple" login to keep up with social sign-ups via Facebook and Google Accounts in apps and on the Web. Apple indicates that it is signing up without tracking and using the Face ID on the device. There's also an attractive "Hide My Emails" feature for signups, where Apple creates a new unique and random email that will be forwarded to your main account, one per app, so it can be easily disabled.
