Apple Takes a Trip to the Dark Side With Dark Mode in iOS 13.
Apple just announced a slew of new features that will be available in iOS 13 which they announced will release this fall at today’s WWDC 2019 keynote. Dark Mode will launch with the updated OS, which will be located conveniently in Control Center. The feature turns the iPhone‘s default interface dark with native apps like Messages and Music supporting the feature at launch.
Furthermore, Apple introduced a new keyboard that now supports swiping to connect letters to one another. They’ve also updated the “Share” button, that now suggests contacts based on how frequently you send to those users. The new music app now supports time-synced lyrics and much more. Other native apps like Safari, Mail, and Notes now support altering text sizes, rich text editing, and an all-new gallery option.
Apple Maps also received a major update. They’ve significantly improved the quality of their maps and introduced a Google Street View rival feature called “Look Around” that makes it easier to move between locations. Apple also improved location tracking in apps by giving users the option to only share their location with an app once. So now developers won’t have to share details about a user’s personal Wi-Fi and Bluetooth signal on iOS.
Lastly, Apple introduced a “Sign in with Apple” feature that creates randomly generated emails accounts that transfers mail to your real address without giving your actual email address. In addition, iOS 13 now allows users to add profile pictures to the numbers to their accounts at their discretion with images or the newly improved Memojis with updated customizations.
We’ll keep you posted on more stories in tech coming out of WWDC 2019.
