A new image supposedly depicting iOS 13's long-rumored 'dark mode' has surfaced hours ahead of its expected launch at WWDC 2019, an alleged screenshot that also shows off what the new Reminders app could look like on an iPhone.
The next major version of iOS won't work with the iPhone SE, the iPhone 6, nor older models, a supposed list of devices compatible with iOS 13 claims, but while two models of iPad apparently won't be supported with the release, the sixth generation iPod touch will receive the operating system update.
Apple could include the ability to use a mouse or trackpad within iOS 13, a report suggests, which beyond accessibility could enable the iPad or iPad Pro to more directly compete with notebooks and other devices that could be used as a complete computer replacement.
A new report has highlighted several new features and changes predicted to be announced at WWDC for iOS 13 and macOS 10.15. Most notably, it appears that Apple will finally be implementing a new image flow when importing photos from external media.
The next version of macOS is expected to add a feature, codenamed "Sidecar," which lets you extend your Mac's desktop to a second monitor or even iPad — functionally the same way as the third-party Luna Display and other software utilities.
The next major release of iOS will join macOS in having a "dark mode," a report claims, with "iOS 13" also tipped to introduce increased multitasking options on iPad, font management changes, and a universal gesture to undo commands.
Next year's iPhones will reportedly include models with a rear-facing 3D camera incorporating a laser scanner for purposes like augmented reality, while iOS 13 could deliver much-awaited features like Dark Mode and CarPlay enhancements.
Rather than packing everything it can into an anticipated "iOS 12" later this year, Apple will reportedly spread out new features into future software updates, meaning "iOS 12.1" and beyond could bring big improvements to the iPhone and iPad.
A second report sheds more light on the features not expected to make the cut for this year's "iOS 12" update, as a redesigned home screen app grid, multiplayer support for augmented reality, and new algorithmic sorting of photos are now reportedly likely to wait until "iOS 13."
