Hands-on Video of 100+ New iOS 13 Features

iOS 13 is a massive release in terms of features and enhancements. Even apart from all the features that Apple highlighted during the opening keynote of WWDC 2019, the OS comes with a number of big and little features which the company simply did not have the time to talk about during the keynote.

We have already highlighted all the big and little features of iOS 13 in our articles. Now, we have a look at them in video form. In the below video, we have gone hands-on with over 100+ changes in iOS 13.

The video highlights Dark mode in iOS 13, Look Around in Apple Maps, the revamped Photos app, Memoji stickers, enhanced photo editing tools, improved Safari, and more.

Below is a quick look at some of the major features in iOS 13:

1. Dark Mode

The biggest feature of iOS 13 is the new Dark Mode. This is truly system-wide. It stretches from the Lock screen to the widgets screen to Apple’s own apps. Even the keyboard gets a better version of the dark mode.

Dark mode can be enabled easily from the Control Center.

4. Redesigned Volume HUD

The new Volume HUD appears in the top-left corner of the screen in an unintrusive manner. It first shows up as a full sized slide. But it immediately shrinks and becomes unintrusive.

5. iCloud Drive Folder Sharing in Files App

You can now share a whole iCloud Drive folder with other users using the Files app.

6. New High-Key Mono Portrait Lighting Effect

This effect creates a beautiful, monochromatic look for Portrait mode photos.

7. Drag Scrollbar

When you’re in Safari or other supported apps, you’ll be able to grab the scrollbar from the right edge of the screen and drag it to move around the page.

8. New Reply Screen in Mail App

When you press the reply button you’ll see a new sheet. It will have buttons for Reply, Forward, Delete, Flag, Unread, Move and Archive.

9. New Setting For Downloading Apps over Cellular

Apple has removed the 200MB Cellular Data limit for app downloads. When an app is over 200MB it will ask if you want to download it anyway. But there’s a setting where you can permanently disable this limit.

10. New Low Data Mode for Wi-Fi

You’ll find a new Low Data mode in the Wi-Fi network page. This will reduce the app data usage when using a particular network.
