iOS 13: 8 Features for a Better Apple Experience
Apple’s latest update to iOS brings to you a number of features that don’t just make your iPhone look and feel better but also perform much better than the previous updates. Enhancements in existing apps like Photos and Camera have garnered huge interest and positive reviews since the release. Let’s explore some of the most interesting features below.
iOS 13 comes with a wonderful new Dark Mode that is way better than any apps or operating systems that offer dark mode implementation. The contrast and colors are perfect for low light conditions and it helps you reduce battery usage over time. A new button on the control centre lets you switch to dark mode seamlessly with suitable wallpapers created for dark interfaces. The dark mode has been integrated into the OS flawlessly making system-level interfaces a breeze to use. It also works natively with third-party apps.
iOS 13 now includes a separate Photos tab to help you browse through your library with impressive navigation and views. The library also comes with enhancements as the photos and videos play mute while you are browsing through them. Previews are now larger to help you distinguish between photos. Duplicate photos, screenshots and other clutter is automatically filtered to show you only the most relevant photos in the library. The navigation is designed to increase efficiency and helps you relive your memories in a quick and easy manner.
The Portrait lighting intensity helps you virtually adjust the lighting and intensity helping you capture way better photos. Live photos and videos begin to play when you scroll through the Photos tab.
Privacy and Security
Improvements to privacy and security for your apps and location data has gained center stage in the present update. Every time you use an app, a notification informs you when it is using your location data. This helps you modify the settings by restricting permission to your location data for specific apps.
Maps have been built from the ground up ensuring better visibility of entities like roads, parks, beaches and other major geographical areas. 3D experiences and 360-degree views help you experience locations before you actually visit them. Now you can create a collection of locations and places that you can share with your friends and family. Real-time transit and ETA help you determine your arrival time while also sharing the information with family and coworkers.
Siri now provides personalized recommendations for podcasts, safari and maps. Third-party apps can now easily integrate with Siri to provide more feature-rich functionality. Moreover, Siri now also includes an Indian English voice for better access.
The Reminders app is now even more intelligent with increased functionality to help you create effective reminders while ensuring easy organization and tracking. It includes a new toolbar that helps you input all the information including date, time and more in just a few taps. Smart lists help you keep track of your reminders and help you navigate them based on priority.
Performance and more
Performance improvements to iOS help you launch apps up to two times faster than previous versions. Even Face ID lock is up to 30% faster. Battery charging and health is also optimized to ensure greater battery life for your devices. The battery health helps your device manage consumption through machine learning algorithms that determine and predict when you are going to charge your device and thus, manage your device performance and energy consumption accordingly.
