iOS 13 will be unveiled during the Worldwide Developers Conference, between June 3 and June 7 this year, in San Jose California. Soon after the release, the system will be accessable to developers during the first test round, followed by Apple’s first oficial beta version for the general public. As per usual, we can expect the official iOS 13 to be released in the fall, along with the new iPhones.
The new software is perhaps the most developed system compared to prior updates, however, many of its exciting rumored features can be postpone.
As we have mentioned in a previous article, we can expect features such as a dark mode. Other changes may include the volume interface, new gestures for undo/redo, a merge between Find My iPhone and Find My Friends, and app updates such as Reminders.
Here are the biggest app updates we may expect:
A new Reminders app will feature four default sections laid out in a grid, encompassing tasks to be finished today, all tasks, scheduled tasks, and flagged tasks.
New Find My iPhone App
Apple is combining Find My Friends and Find My Phone into one. The app will include a new “find network” feature for allowing Apple devices to be tracked even when not connected to Wi-Fi or a cellular network by leveraging other nearby devices.
The Mail app will organize messages into searchable categories as well a read later queue. The user can also mute incoming Mail notifications for specific email threads, and block contacts.
The Messages app will have a WhatsApp-feel, allowing users to create a profile picture and display name, and choosing who can see it. There will also be a dedicated menu for Animoji and Memoji stickers.
The new features will make it easier to navigate to frequent locations, such as home or work addresses. Frequent locations will also be grouped more efficiently, and the user will be able to add photos to them.
Other cool new features include Screen Time that will allow parents to determine what kids can or cannot contact during specific times, new Emojis, such as a flaming, an otter, and a waffle, and the health app will get an improved daily track, and a hearing health to determine how loud you are listening to music on your earphones.
What do you think of these new features? What are you most excited about with the new update? And more importantly, what challenges do you think mobile technicians will face with a new iOS on older models?
