Apple is expected to unveil the next major iOS update, iOS 13 at WWDC in June. The next version of iOS to come with a bunch of new features including universal dark mode, improved multitasking options, an undo gesture and updates for the likes of Safari and Mail, 9to5 reported.
Users will finally get the much-awaited Dark Mode feature with iOS 13. “There will be a system-wide Dark Mode that can be enabled in Settings.” Apps that support it will automatically switch to dark mode the next time you launch them. The Dark Mode will reduce battery consumption on smartphones because there will be minimum colors used on the display.
iOS 13 to come with improved multitasking for iPad. It will allow apps to have multiple windows. “Each window will also be able to contain sheets that are initially attached to a portion of the screen, but can be detached with a drag gesture, becoming a card that can be moved around freely, similar to what an open-source project called “PanelKit” could do.”
“These cards can also be stacked on top of each other, and use a depth effect to indicate which cards are on top and which are on the bottom. Cards can be flung away to dismiss them.”
Apple might also change the gesture of Undo. As of now, the Undo feature requires shaking the device but with ioS 13 it is going to change. users will be able to swipe with three fingers on the virtual keyboard to undo and redo a text insertion.
iOS 13 will include some new gestures for the selection of multiple items in table views and collection views. Users will supposedly be able to “drag with multiple fingers on a list or collection of items to draw a selection, similar to clicking and dragging in Finder on the Mac.”
Mail app also receives some new changes and updates. Also, Safari on iOS 13 for the iPad will automatically ask for a desktop version of websites when necessary, preventing a common issue where websites will render their iPhone version even when running on an iPad with a big screen.
