Apple has already unveiled its iPhone 11 lineup, and launched a 10.2-inch iPad which is made of 100 per cent recycled aluminium. During the event, the company announced that these devices will run iOS 13 and iPadOS. The iPhones will hit the shelves on September 20, and just a day ahead of their availability, the Cupertino-based tech company will release iOS 13 to all the compatible devices. Similarly, the latest iPad will be available in stores on September 30 and Apple will roll out the iPadOS on the same day.
Further, the iOS 13.1 is also slated to come on September 30. iOS 13.1 is basically a refined version of iOS 13, and it comes with fixes (if any). This version is said to be in final beta stages and, thanks to the Apple-designed U1 chip, the stable version will bring along spatial awareness to some devices. This chip uses Ultra Wideband technology that will allow an iPhone 11 Pro/ iPhone 11 Pro Max to precisely locate other U1-equipped Apple devices.
With iOS 13, this chip is also said to expedite the AirDrop process. 'With U1 and iOS 13, you can point your iPhone toward someone else's, and AirDrop will prioritise that devices so you can share files faster,' Apple explains on its website. Another feature that is coming later this year is Audio Sharing that will let two users to pair their AirPods or Beats Headphones to one phone simultaneously.
At this year’s WWDC, Apple announced a string of changes that it would bring in iOS 13. One of the major changes was the system-wide Dark Mode. All the native apps will now come with this option, it is also available to third-party app developers for integration into their own apps. The next major enhancement is in the Photos app, which will use machine learning to organise photos so that the gallery looks cleaner. Further, the editing is said to be made easier.
Apple has been vocal about privacy and in iOS 13, it has introduced more private way to simply and quickly sign into apps and websites. Users can now fill forms and verify emails with Apple ID. This means that users won’t have to use their social media accounts to complete registrations. The company will also roll out new Maps. Apple says it drove four million miles to rebuild the app and it will now deliver broader road coverage, better pedestrian data and more precise addresses.
