The narrative surrounding the iOS 13 is receiving more hype as it’s set to be unveiled in the upcoming WWDC 2019 slated to take place on June 3 and will conclude on June 7. The new operating system will bring a host of different features that will surely please Apple users, CNET reported.
For months, the Dark Mode feature of the iOS 13 has been the talk among the Apple community as a lot of people has been requesting it from the Cupertino-based company for a while. The feature is set to provide more battery life to devices that have OLED display by only having the brightened area consume power.
It will also reduce eye strain caused by the bright display, a welcome respite for weary eyes. Next up, the iOS 13 will also be bringing several gestures command. Among them is the ability to undo and redo actions by sliding three fingers on the keyboard area. The arrival of the new update will be providing a tutorial for the gesture to help people adopt it quickly.
And speaking of the keyboard, the iOS 13’s new feature will also allow users to type out words by swiping through the screen with a single motion similar to what Swift Key is doing. A new parental-control will be introduced as well, a feature that will be under the Screen Time category. With it, parents will be able to control who their kids will be able to contact at a certain time.
For instance, they could restrict contact other than themselves during a particular period of the day or if a kid is being grounded. Another small but highly requested change that the iOS 13 will bring is the ability to control the annoying volume HUD, allowing users to get rid of the display when it pops up.
Having said all of these, it’s important to remember that the upcoming iOS 13 will not be perfect once it rolls out next month. Instead, Apple will be tweaking the system in the upcoming months with the final version expected to land in September.
