Apple Releases iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 Beta 7 [Update: Public Beta Out]

iOS 13

Apple today released the seventh beta of iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 for all compatible iPhones and iPads. The latest beta comes just a week after Apple released the sixth beta of iOS 13 and iPadOS 13.

The latest beta is all about bug fixes and stability improvements. This is particularly important as the final release of iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 are now just over a month away.

If you have been holding out on trying out the iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 beta on your device due to stability issues, you can safely consider trying out the latest beta builds. They are a major step up from the initial beta builds, though you will still find some lingering issues here and there.

iOS 13 Features

iOS 13 comes with a number of major new features including a redesigned Reminders app, faster Face ID, system-wide Dark mode, improved Safari, and more.

1. Dark Mode

A system-wide Dark mode is probably the highlight of iOS 13. 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.

2. New Reminders App

There is a new smarter and enhanced Reminders app in iOS 13. It uses Natural Language Processing which makes it easier to add reminders and tasks.

3. 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.

4. Improved Safari

Safari has received a major update in iOS 13 and iPadOS 13. It now features a dedicated Download manager which means one can now use the browser to download files.

On iPadOS 13, Safari will now load the desktop version of websites to offer a better browsing experience.

5. QuickPath

The stock keyboard in iOS 13 has finally gained gesture-based typing known as QuickPath. This is similar to the swipe-based typing experience offered by SwiftKey and Gboard.
