Do These Features Make Apple iOS 13 Worth Waiting For?

Apple announced iOS 13

Apple (AAPL) announced its upcoming iOS 13 during its 2019 Worldwide Developers Conference (or WWDC) event last week. The company has announced new versions of its iOS every year during its WWDC event since 2010. So, the next version of iOS was one of the highly expected announcements from the event in 2019.

iOS 13 key features

The upcoming iPhone operating system, the iOS 13, includes a system-wide dark mode option that the company showcased during WWDC 2019. Apple claims the dark mode to be easier on users’ eyes and that it’s less likely that the light emitting from an iPhone screen would disturb people nearby when using in the dark as compared to the normal mode.

The iOS 13 will allow iPhone users to curate photographs at different levels, making it easier to find them. It will also support a video auto-playing feature as users scroll through the photo and video gallery.

Users will also be able to assign birthdays to people in photographs, and the phone’s photo tab will highlight the photograph on their respective birthdays. The upcoming iOS 13 will also let users make adjustments and edit their videos on the phone with ease.

Other improvements

iPhones running on iOS 13 will allow users to adjust portrait lighting intensity in the camera app. On the privacy front, with the new operating system, users can prevent apps from knowing their exact location by using the phone’s Bluetooth or Wi-Fi without their consent. Some of these features were already available for iPhone users with third-party apps.
