Apple held its annual developer conference, WWDC 2019 on June 3rd. While it has revealed exciting news about all the systems that ship with their products, from macOS to watchOS, it is undeniable to say that the spotlight for the event was on the new Apple iOS 13, which should be seen soon on all compatible iPhones.
As usual, we will list some of the news that caught our attention, in addition, of course, the list of iDevices that will be compatible with the new version of the system. Is your iPhone on the list?
Apple has made a significant set of changes in the new version of its mobile operating system, but without compromising the performance. According to the company, the unlocking through FaceID will be 30% faster, while the speed of opening the apps is up to 2x more agile as compared to iOS 12, of course.
What’s more, the download of the applications should also be 2x faster, since the packages are about 50% smaller.
With improvements to the interface in general, the company has made a real breakthrough in the design of some screens and applications, such as the Health app, which now highlights the activities of the day and brings new sections such as “hearing health ” and menstrual cycle.
However, it is undeniable to state that the highlight of iOS 13 is the arrival of Dark Mode. The new theme brings visual changes to virtually every screen in the system, introducing a dark background in the Settings, Phone, Photos, and more. Check out the official video below:
But this change goes beyond aesthetics. Just as we’ve said before, this kind of news can bring better battery life for some of the company’s latest products, such as iPhone X, XS, and XS Max which are equipped with screens of type AMOLED capable of turning off specific sectors taken by the black color, saving load.
In addition, we also have the arrival of Swype to the native keyboard of iOS through the feature of Quick Path, enabling the composition of words just by swiping your finger on the screen – as already seen in third-party proposals such as Google, with its keyboard, and Microsoft with Switftkey.
Now talking about privacy. Apple has taken users’ privacy even more seriously in iOS 13. From now on, you can choose to provide your location data to a “one-time ” application – preventing it from being able to ping your location when is in use.
In addition, we also have the “Enter with Apple ” feature, which will arrive as a way to sign in to apps and services, working as an option to tools already known in the market, such as Facebook and Google.
With this, users can log in through FaceID and TouchID and create a new account for a service faster and more dynamically without revealing personal information. And you can even create a random auto-email for each application – preventing apps and services from ” crawling ” or sending useless messages by filling your spam box.
