iOS 13 will be announced during the WWDC keynote this week.
Ahead of Apple’s annual WWDC keynote, many are already speculating as to what we can expect on the next major version of the company’s mobile operating system made for the iPhone, iPad and the iPod touch.
Some may prefer new apps and services, but others may also prefer improved performance and battery life. iOS 12 introduced some of these improved performance gains, but for iOS 13, we’re hoping to get some of these new features:
Dark Mode – With iPhones embracing OLED displays, it’s just logical to introduce a new dark mode to accompany the iOS interface. Dark mode effectively turns off pixels on OLED displays, which could significantly help improve battery life. In fact, we’ve already seen leaks of the new dark mode UI, but we’re still excited to see how our iPhones will look like with dark mode turned on.
User accounts on iPad – Unlike iPhones, iPads are commonly shared within a household, and just like a PC, it’s great to have user accounts so you can customize your own apps and games. Hopefully, user account support comes to iOS 13 on the iPad.
Volume icon – We’ve been asking it for years and hopefully, iOS 13 will finally get rid of that annoying volume icon that appears when you’re adjusting it. If you know what we’re talking about, then you’d understand how frustrating it is seeing that icon that takes the middle of the screen.
Search emojis on the keyboard – I like Apple’s QuickType keyboard, but I opted using Google’s Gboard since I can search emojis that I can use, which isn’t supported on QuickType. This is one feature that I hope comes to iOS 13.
Better night shots – We know Apple’s camera already has great hardware but knowing that Google and other companies can dramatically improve images through software, I’m sure Apple can pull some strings and make night shots even better.
Mouse support on the iPad – Since Apple is pushing for the iPad as a laptop alternative, having mouse support would be ideal, considering that it already supports keyboards.
Picture-in-picture – This feature is already supported on the iPad, but it would be great if it makes its way to the iPhone. We’d understand if Apple didn’t want to bring it on earlier iPhones, but the new ones already have big screens that can support the feature.
Any other features you hope to be included on iOS 13? Give it a shoutout in the comments below!
