And, thanks to a new report published today, iOS 13 is looking to be a massive update for both the iPhone and the iPad.

The news comes courtesy of "people familiar with the development of the operating system" who have been speaking with 9to5Mac.


If you're a fan of dark mode on just about every device you own, you're really going to like the next version of iOS.

In addition to that, the report also suggests that iOS 13 may come with features like new multiwindow support for apps for iPad. Earlier only Undo typing has been available which required a physical shaking of the iPhone to enable the feature, which was certainly awkward. In iOS 13, Apple will introduce a new gesture on the iPad: A three-finger tap on the keyboard, followed by a slide to the left or right, will let the user undo and redo actions. A new Font management panel in Settings will help users install and manage fonts. Developers will also get a new standard font picker component, and users will be notified each time when they open a document that doesn't have available fonts. The Mail app meanwhile could add a read later option for messages, as well as upgraded filters that funnel emails into searchable categories including purchases, travel and "not important". Ahead of the launch in a couple of months, there's a new report that had shed some information on what to expect from the upcoming iOS 13 for iPhones and iPads. Apple is also said to be bringing improved multitasking and a lot more besides. Users will be able to "drag with multiple fingers on a list or collection of items to draw a selection, similar to clicking and dragging in Finder on the Mac".


Developers would be able to use a different status bar style, including light or dark, for each side of an in-app split view. This approach is similar to what third-party apps like Edison Mail, Spark, and others offer.

But wait, there's more. iOS 13 will also feature a redesigned Reminders app, better "Hey Siri" rejection, better multilingual support for keyboards and dictation, and expanded in-app printing controls, 9to5Mac explains.
