The iOS 13 is an operating system that was designed, developed especially for iPhone by Apple in 2019. The system has been released on September 19, 2019, and was preinstalled on the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max, and iPhone SE 2nd Generation. This software gets the last update (13.7) on September 1, 2020, and has been replaced by a newer version of iOS 14.
As of iOS 13, the iPad lines run a separate operating system, derived from iOS, named iPadOS. A system-wide dark mode allows users to enable a light-on-dark color scheme for the entire iOS and iPadOS user interface, all native apps and supported third-party apps. It can be manually turned on or set to automatically switch between light and dark modes based on the time of day.
iOS 13 makes several performance improvements. Face ID unlocks the iPhone X, Xs / Xs Max, and iPhone Xr up to 30% faster than on iOS 12. A new file format makes app downloads as much as 50% smaller, app updates as much as 60% smaller, and app launches up to twice as fast.
iOS 13 introduced the ability to connect to external USB drives. iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 add a new system-wide gesture interface for cut, copy, paste, undo, and redo.
A new single sign-on implementation called “Sign in with Apple” allows users to create accounts with third-party services with a minimal amount of information. iOS 13 changes the handling of location data.
When an app requests access to a location, the user chooses whether to grant access whenever they are using the app, or only once. The user will receive similar prompts for background location access, and when an app requests access to Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.
Siri uses a software-generated voice called “Neural TTS“, intended to sound more natural than previous versions that use clips of human voices. iOS 13 ended support for all iPhones using the Apple A8 or earlier.
Today iOS 13 is 4 years old!
