1. Speed Boosts

The first thing I would like to focus on is the speed boost in iOS 13. It is actually quite faster rather than the previous version. In some of the apps like on camera, swiping the screen, Messages, lock screen the iOS 13 is working faster than iOS 12.3.1.

2. Dark Mode

Dark Mode in iOS 13 is amazing which is useful to protect your eyes from the traditionally blinding whiteness of phone screen. You can enable the Dark Mode simply by going to the Settings of your phone and select the Display as Dark Mode and in most apps, you get true Dark Mode without Jailbreaking your iPhone.

5. Volume HUD

The Volume HUD has now been fixed so if you double click the volume button, it will go to the thin mode and if you leave it be with just one it’s thick one then you can manipulate with your fingers. It’s just like a miniature version of the one from the Control Center.

Moreover, there are new emoji stickers and even your personal emoji can be changed and you can adjust so many little things like tongue piercings, earrings, eyewear, and complete customization has been added to the emojis.

7. Photo Viewer

Probably one of the best updates in iOS 13 is the views of the photos. now any photos from the Album or group of photos can be zoom in and zoom out and scroll to see all of your photos. Another great feature in iOS 13 is days, months and years. It shows the photos related exact date.

8. Map

The Maps application has been completely revamped and its’ also available in Dark Mode. Apple drove over 4 million miles to rebuild the map application from the ground up. A much better version of Street view from Google Maps that makes you able to smoothly transition from area to the area look around at a shop click on it and get the actual info for that area.

9. Find My App

There’s a new app in iOS 13 called Find My Now, it replaces Find My iPhone and Find My Friends and will combine both of them. The best thing about it is the Bluetooth beacon feature so when your device goes into sleep mode it will still send out a very small packet of data through Bluetooth to other Apple devices in the area. It’s just a more reliable way to track your device in that rare emergencies so a very good one from Apple.

10. Homekit

Here is a very nice upgrade in the Home. There are security cameras from certain providers. Everything is done on-device processing then it uploads to the cloud, it never goes to the actual manufacturer. So the Homekit has been reworked and the applications have been adjusted overall.


11. Air Pods

In iOS now you can simultaneously connect to two pairs of air pods. Connect and stream audio to two separate pairs of air pods. Thanks to Apple added it to the new version.

12. Single Sign in

Sign In with Apple is designed to let you sign into apps using your Apple ID for authentication purposes, offering up a privacy-focused alternative to signing in with accounts from sites like Facebook, Google, or Twitter. You don’t share your personal data with those companies it’s going through Apple and they create burner emails it’s just an all-around brilliant system that solves the problem.
