At WWDC 2019, one of the things that’s highly anticipated to be presented is the iOS 13 firmware. With that being said, here are the features that the said firmware is reportedly going to offer.

Dark Mode

According to a report, Apple is working on a system-wide Dark Mode for the mobile operating system. With this feature, both iPhone and iPad users will no longer be blinded by the all while UI of iOS at night or even first thing in the morning.

In addition to that, the Cupertino-based tech company is also working on a high-contrast mode similar to the one seen in MacOS.

Multitasking Improvements

Aside from Dark Mode, the iOS 13 firmware will offer a slew of multitasking improvements. One of the reported multitasking improvements is added support for multiple windows for one single app.

Undo Gesture, New Gestures, Font Management

The iOS 13 firmware will also offer an undo gesture. To use this feature, the user will only have to tap the keyboard area with three fingers and then slide to the left or right to undo and redo actions.

There will also be new gestures. These gestures include selecting multiple items, easy drag and drop of those items with multiple fingers, improvements in the Split view, and more.

As for the font management, it can be found in the “Settings” app. With this, users will no longer need to install a new profile to get new fonts in iOS.

Safari, Mail, Volume HUD And More

The iOS 13 firmware will also offer improvements to Safari and Mail. In addition to that, there will also be a new volume HUD and improvements to Hey Siri.

For Safari, it will automatically open desktop versions of the websites.

For Mail, there are two major improvements:

  • It will automatically organize emails in different categories.
  • There will be an option where users add emails to a “read later” list.

For the new volume HUD, it will undergo a new design. The new design won’t interfere with the content on the screen.

As for the remaining improvements, this includes improvements to “Hey Siri” rejection, improved multilingual support on the keyboard, dictation, improved in-app printing controls, redesigned Reminders app, and easy collaboration on third-party document-based apps.
