If you are in the list, well done, you are in the race, you can continue the adventure. We apologize to all the others who will not be able to update their little smartphone and take advantage of these great new features.
What’s new with iOS 13?
A new iOS is good, but what will that change? Many things ! No big revolution on the horizon, of course, but enough to shake up and improve your habits and uses.
On the program, in the biggest changes, we find in particular the dark mode. If this darkened theme for the screen doesn’t seem to change much, in fact, it’s a real step forward. First, because it is less tiring for the eyes, and secondly because it will greatly improve the performance and battery of your iPhone.
But that’s not all ! Apple also adds the ability to write on the keyboard without lifting your finger, sliding from character to character. The photo editing mode will also be optimized, as will the Maps service which should be even more efficient. Siri will also be entitled to its small update. Her voice will now be more natural and she will be able to read your messages to you directly in your AirPods.
If these innovations are not science fiction, it would still be a shame not to be able to take advantage of them. And for that, you will have to have the right iPhone, otherwise, no update!
