Earlier this week, Apple announced that iOS 13 and the new iPadOS will support both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One S gaming controllers. This is a big deal not only for iOS users but also for Sony’s Remote Play app users on iOS.
iOS 13 - iOS 13.3: The Complete Guide
Just like iOS 12, iOS 13 is filled with small improvements. Other than bigger features like Dark Mode, iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 is about small changes and new hidden features that go a long way in reducing frustration. Take a look at all the awesome hidden features in iOS 13 and iPadOS 13.
Unlike the last few years, Apple did not release the iOS 13 developer beta as an OTA update. Instead, developers and advanced users were required to download the iOS 13 IPSW file for their device from Apple’s developer website and then install it using iTunes.
Despite packing a ton of new features, Apple also included some performance improvements in iOS 13. The company managed to reduce the app download and installation size in iOS 13 by over 50 percent. But that’s not it as Apple also claims that app launching is 2x faster on iOS 13.
Soon after the opening WWDC 2019 keynote ended, Apple released the first developer beta of iOS 13. As the name indicates, this developer beta is meant only for developers. However, given the sheer number of new features and changes that iOS 13 packs, many advanced users must be itching to install the OS on their iPhone or iPad. If you are in the same boat, I am here to spoil the party for you by giving you some reasons for not installing the iOS 13 beta on your iPhone right away.
Despite all the warnings from Apple, you ended up installing iOS 13 beta on your iPhone? Or took the new iPadOS 13 for a spin on your iPad? While the new features are nice to play with, there are simply too many bugs in iOS 13 that it cannot be used on one’s daily driver. If you are done playing around with iOS 13 beta on your iPhone and are now looking to downgrade it back to iOS 12.3, follow this guide.
Apple highlighted all the key new features of iOS 13 at the opening keynote of WWDC 2019 but the OS comes with so many new features that the company simply did not have the time to go through it all. One such little new feature in iOS 13 is Optimized Battery Charging which is aimed at further improving the battery lifespan of iPhones.
Apple seeded the first beta of iOS 13 to developers and advanced users today. Being a beta — and the first one at that — it is not without its own set of issues and bugs. There are plenty of bugs and stability issues and if you are thinking of installing the iOS 13 developer beta on your iPhone/iPad, you should be aware of such bugs.
Right before WWDC 2019, Apple silently bumped the iOS cellular App Store download limit to 200MB. With iOS 13 and iPadOS 13, the company is getting rid of this limit altogether. Yep, you will be able to download large apps from the App Store in iOS 13.
Apple bundles new wallpapers with every new iOS release. iOS 13 is no different in this regard and it comes with a bunch of new wallpapers. You don’t really need to install iOS 13 on your iPhone or iPad to enjoy the new wallpapers as they have been extracted and made available for all iOS users.
