IOS 13 new features: Dark Mode, Mail overhaul, undo gesture and more

iOS 13 to Reportedly Include Dark Mode, Multitasking Improvements

Are you glad that Apple is finally going to include a system-wide Dark mode in iOS 13?

Undo gesture. A new system gesture will formalize Undo across all apps that use a keyboard.

Facebook has been widely testing Messenger's Dark Mode for about a month now, and while the feature was available for some users, you couldn't enable it via the settings menu.

We already heard the implementation of a system-wide Dark Mode for iOS devices that would be similar to what arrived on Mac machines through macOS 10.14 Mojave previous year.

The clunky iOS undo function, which until now has involved shaking the device, may be usurped by a gesture.

IPad users will also be treated to a new undo gesture; now, iOS users have to physically shake their device to undo, but with iOS 13, iPad users will be able to perform a three-finger tap on the keyboard area, after which sliding left and right will allow users to undo and redo actions. This would help prevent an issue where users are forced to move the user-agent to a desktop version.


Along with some changes to Safari and font management, Mail will also get an overhaul.

Apple will also improve the multitasking experience on the iPad with iOS 13.

iOS 13 will have new gestures to select multiple items in table and collection views. Mails found in the app can be categorized via specific sections such as marketing, purchases, travel, and even "not important" among others. Developers will be able to use a different status bar style (light or dark) for each part of a Split View with side-by-side apps, while the Reminders app will be redesigned, alongside the volume HUD.

There are possibly many other iOS 13 features the report doesn't touch on, nor is it confirmed all of these will make it to the public version of iOS.

Additional features include a new font management tool in Settings, improved collaboration in third-party document-based apps, a new gesture for multiple items selection, better "Hey Siri" rejection for background noise, improved multilingual support for keyboards and dictation, and improved in-app printing controls.
