We already know that Apple will announce iOS 13 during its annual WWDC event in June, mainly because that’s the event that has seen new releases of the software announced over the last few years.
A lot is expected of this release after iOS 12 focused on righting the wrongs of a years of poor quality control. This is the year we get new features, many of which users we have been crying out for. That’s the plan, at least, and now 9to5Mac appears to have the inside scoop on what we can expect.
Top of the wish list for many people is Dark Mode, a system-wide feature that will turn iOS black or, at the very least, considerably darker than usual. According to 9to5Mac’s sources that’s one thing that will arrive this year, alongside improvements to multitasking on iPad. Importantly, apps will apparently now have multiple windows available to them, and they can then be moved around the screen or flung away if no longer needed.
Other improvements include a new undo gesture, with a three-finger tap with a swipe to the left or right allowing users to undo, or redo, as they see fit. This is apparently an iPad-only affair, suggesting we’ll have to make do with the shake-to-undo madness we have today.
Upgrades to Mail are also incoming, which isn’t something that has happened for a while. Mail will soon be able to organize emails based o their source, such as marketing and such. If you’ve been using a third-party email client because Mail doesn’t have the smarts you need, that may change soon. Although, Gmail users may still need to look elsewhere if they want to continue to use it to its full potential.
There’s so much in this report that it’s difficult to fit it all in, and we absolutely suggest you check the full post out, over on 9to5Mac. However, one tidbit did catch our eye – iOS 13 will finally, finally, come with a redesigned volume HUD.
