The latest update to Apple’s mobile operating system , iOS 13 , was available last night for compatible devices. The biggest new feature is the iOS 8 Dark Mode, which Apple users have long wanted to add.
Dark Mode darkens all aspects of the interface of the iPhone , including the iPhone , picture gallery, settings menu, and so on.
When Dark Mode is activated in iOS 13 update
, even miscellaneous apps can switch to a dark theme if they are compatible. There’s also an option in the Control Center that lets you automatically turn on the darkness of your phone theme at night.
The second major feature to note in iOS 13 may be typing by swiping on the keyboard. Thanks to this feature, Apple users are able to type faster.
In addition to the above, iOS 13 is seeing some improvements in apps like Maps, Photos and Reminders. The Mapes app now hosts an instant traffic estimation feature similar to Google Street View. The Fotos app has been equipped with some great new video editing tools including crop capability and finally the Reminders app has been greatly redesigned.
Apple has merged Find My iPhone and Find My Friends in the new iOS version and has extracted a new app called Find My from them.
Meanwhile, the Health app now has a new ability to monitor menstruation.
Although iOS 13 has been available since last night, Apple is planning to release its new update, iOS 13.1, soon on September 9, with the iPadOS 13.1 operating system.
IOS 13.1 appears to include updates that were originally intended to be released with iOS 13 for Apple phones, but for some reason this has not happened.
IOS 13.1 Siri will be able to read incoming messages aloud; it will also be possible to add shortcuts to this smart voice assistant to HomeKit .
iOS 13.1 is an important update, and iPhone users should be sure to install it when it is released. IOS 13.1 changes to iOS 13 are not just visual changes, and new bug fixes will also fix some bugs.
Some time ago, some researchers reported a security issue on the iOS 13 lock screen that would probably be fixed in iOS 13.1. Lastly, you can watch Apple’s new OS-compatible devices.
Apple’s iOS 13 is packing great new features that developers and iPhone owners are champing at the bit to try out. Fortunately for iPhone owners, the iOS 13 public beta is now available.
Note: Installing the early beta of any operating system is a risk. It’s likely to be riddled with bugs, make some features of a device unusable, and may even brick the phone and necessitate a factory reset. Install the iOS 13 beta at your own risk, and never on a primary device
How to install the iOS 13 beta
With the iOS 13 public beta now available, it’s time to get it installed and try out all the new features.
Before you begin, a word of warning: iOS 13 is still in beta. It’s difficult to roll back a beta installation, so you shouldn’t install the iOS 13 public beta on your primary device.
If you decide to do so, be sure you have made a total encrypted backup of the iPhone you intend to use for the beta install. If you have problems with the iOS 13 beta or want to roll back your device for whatever reason,
you’ll need a backup to restore to.
Once your iPhone is backed up, be sure your device is enrolled in the Apple beta program.
SIgn in with your Apple ID and follow the steps—it’s incredibly simple,
and you should be able to complete it in no time.
With your device enrolled, it’s time to install the iOS 13 beta profile,
without which your device won’t be able to find iOS 13 beta updates.
From your iPhone, tap this link to be taken to the profile download page. Sign in using the same Apple ID you registered your device with.
If your device was registered properly, you should see a button that says Download Profile. Tap it, accept the download, and wait for it to complete (it should be nearly instant).
With the profile download complete, you’ll need to install it. Open the Settings app. On the main screen of Settings right below your Apple ID,
you should see a space that labeled Profile Downloaded—tap it.
On this screen, you should see the iOS 13 beta profile. In the upper right corner will be the Install button—tap it. From there, you’ll see a consent disclaimer that you can agree to with a tap in the upper right corner.
Your device will want to restart after the profile installs. Restart and head back to the settings app. Navigate to General, then Software Update. The iOS 13 public beta should be available for download and install. Tap that option, and then sit back and wait.
