More iOS 13 features have been leaked, including a real Dark Mode
The Reminders app is also getting a refresh.
Apple’s WWDC 2019 is less than a week away, where the latest and greatest in iOS and Mac operating systems will finally be unveiled.
A week is a long time in tech, but thankfully, due to some sources at 9to5mac, we can see some of the new features now.
Apple’s iOS 13 might be your lucky number
We’ve talked about all the new features rumored to arrive next week, so hit the link if you want to read in-depth. For now, we’re focusing on the new leaked screenshots sent to 9to5mac, which confirm systemwide Dark Mode for iOS, as well as tweaks to the screenshot feature and a few other apps.
- Dark Mode can be turned on in the Settings app or in Control Center
- That means it’ll be on system-wide, although don’t expect huge changes to the UI (for example, the Home screen only seems to have changes to the Dock coloring)
- The Music app appears to be using a true-black background, which should do wonders for battery life on the iOS devices with OLED screens
- The screenshot tool no longer has a gray background, instead, it’s a blurred version of the user’s own wallpaper
- The Reminders app is being redesigned and is also coming to macOS, via Apple’s Marzipan framework
- As reported previously, the Find My Friends and Find My iPhone apps are being unified into a new app, Find My. All of the functionality of both apps will be in the new app.
Apple is expected to announce iOS 13 officially at its opening keynote at WWDC 2019 on June 3rd. As always, the developer beta should be available immediately following the announcement, with the public beta coming in the weeks after.
