At their press event where they announced the new iPhone 11 models, Apple also announced the release date for their much-awaited iOS 13.
The update will be available for public on 19 September 2019 for iPhone 6s and later models.
The new operating system comes with a number of improvements including editing photos and videos, sign in with Apple into apps and websites, and all-new map. iOS 13 brings faster performance and reduced app download sizes.
Here are the top features on iOS 13:
iPhone has a beautiful new look with Dark Mode, a new dark color scheme that works system-wide and across all native apps to deliver a great viewing experience, especially in low-light environments. Dark Mode is available to third-party app developers for integration into their own apps and can be scheduled to turn on automatically at sunset or at a certain time.
Photos, Video Editing
In iOS 13, most photo editing tools are now available for video editing, making it possible to rotate, crop or apply filters right within the Photos app. Portrait Lighting adjustments can be made right in the Camera app. Users will now be able to edit videos, even rotate them using iPhone editing.
Sign In with Apple
Apple introduces Sign In with Apple, a more private way to simply and quickly sign into apps and websites. Instead of using a social account or filling out forms, verifying email addresses or choosing passwords, customers can simply use their Apple ID to authenticate and Apple will protect users’ privacy by providing developers with a unique random ID. Users can authenticate with Face ID or Touch ID and has two-factor authentication built in for an added layer of security.
Apple Maps is now improved giving users a new Maps experience with broader road coverage, better pedestrian data, more precise addresses and more detailed landcover. The new map is available now in select cities and states, and will roll out across the US by the end of 2019 and to more countries in 2020.
Powered by the new basemap and high-resolution 3D photography, a new Look Around feature delivers beautiful street-level imagery of a city with smooth and seamless transitions. iOS 13 brings additional new features to the Maps app, including Collections to easily share favorite restaurants, travel destinations or places to shop with friends, and Favorites for navigating to frequent destinations, such as home, work, the gym or school, with a simple tap from the launch screen.
