The Dark Mode
The most significant addition is the Dark Mode. This mode allows everything from iMessage, Photos, and Settings to switch to a much darker theme throughout the operating system. To use this mode, all you need to do is:
Go to Settings
- Click on Display & Brightness
- Choose Dark, at the top of your mobile screen
- Use the toggle next to Automatic if you want to switch between the dark and light theme
The second noticeable feature is a new swipe mode on the keyboard. Thanks to this, you can swipe words and complete your sentences much faster. This new iOS 13 function is called QuickPath. This feature is enabled by default after installing iOS 13. This means you do not have to change any setting or do anything other than place a finger on the keyboard and glide.
iOS 13 has made slight changes to apps such as Maps, Photos, and Reminders. Now, Maps will have real-time public transit estimates and a Google Street View-like mode. When it comes to Photos, you will find some great video editing improvements, which includes crop. And, Reminders has a new design that consists of a new today section. This is not all. The tech giant has a combined Find My app. This app is a combination of Find My iPhone and Find My Friends apps. Plus, the Health app will have a built-in period tracker.
