Core chips iOS 13 uncovered a large-scale leakage
Before the premiere of the new version of iOS from Apple is still about two months, but the network has leaked details about the main innovations of the 13th iteration of the "Apple" OS. According to the portal 9to5Mac, users of current Apple gadgets will receive a dark theme at the system level — the corresponding switch will appear in the display settings menu.
The changes will also affect the operation of tablets — in particular, after the update to iOS 13, applications for iPad will support the ability to simultaneously open multiple application Windows. They can be freely dragged around the display and even placed in "stacks", quickly switching between tasks. Another important innovation the source calls an alternative function of canceling text input — instead of shaking the device, the user will only need to swipe left with three fingers on the on-screen keyboard. If the text was deleted by mistake, swipe right will return it to the input field.
Another significant change will be the algorithm of the Safari browser, which by default will open the desktop, not the mobile version of the site when compatibility problems are detected. A standard mail application will learn how to sort emails into a wide range of categories: marketing, shopping, travel and so on. Each of these categories will be searchable. Users can also add messages to the read later list.
For applications with many visual elements (such as tables or photo collections), Apple is preparing a new gesture that allows you to select multiple elements at the same time, similar to selecting multiple files "frame" with the mouse in the desktop OS.
Big update of font management has been announced. Instead of requiring the installation of different profiles, the font control panel appears in the Settings app. Other features include an updated reminder app, improved multilingual keyboard and dictation support, more in-app print controls, and some improvements to the Hey Siri feature.
