As expected, Apple has announced iOS 13 onstage at WWDC 2019, giving a first look at the company’s latest software for the iPhone. According to Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of software engineering, iOS 13 is the “next big release for iOS,” and it will offer a variety of improvements to the operating system.
Chief among those is a new (and long-awaited) dark mode, improvements to performance, and more changes.
Probably the single most anticipated change, and the biggest visual update Apple’s made to iOS since it introduced the current software design in iOS 7, iOS 13 is finally offering a true, system-wide dark mode.
All of Apple’s first-party apps are supported, and even notifications and the dock get new dark hues to go with it.
