There’s a massive upgrade coming to your iPhone later this year with Apple announcing the launch of its all-new iOS 13 operating system.
This major update was revealed last night during the US technology firm’s WWDC Developers Conference in California.
There’s a huge list of new features for iPhone fans to look forward to but one of the most popular additions has to be the Dark Mode.
This will change the appearance of your device with a black background replacing the usual white colour scheme.
Apple says that Dark Mode will be available across all native apps including Messages, Photos and Mail plus it will be open to third-party developers as well.
Other new additions in iOS 13 include a more private way to simply and quickly sign into apps and websites and there’s a feature called QuickPath which brings easy one-hand typing to the iOS keyboard by continuously swiping through the letters of a word.
If you like sending Memojis, then this new update brings extra features such as makeup, earrings and hats to these animated caricatures.
Reminders get a new look and now offers an intelligent way to create and edit reminders, with more options to organise and keep track of them.
And users in the USA will also get access to improved Apple Maps later this year which features broader road coverage, better pedestrian data, more precise addresses and more detailed landcover.
“iOS 13 brings new capabilities to the apps you use every day, with rich updates to Photos and Maps, and privacy-protecting features like Sign In with Apple, all while delivering faster performance,” said Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering.
“We’re excited for customers to experience what’s coming to iPhone this fall and can’t wait for them to see how great everything looks in Dark Mode.”
So, you are excited about iOS 13, here’s all the devices it will be available for later this year.
Apple says the new software features will be available this fall as a free software update for iPhone 6s and later, and will be available with iPadOS for iPad Air 2 and later, all iPad Pro models, iPad 5th generation and later, and iPad mini 4 and later.
