iOS 13 to add system-wide dark mode and undo gesture, report

Apple is all set to introduce unique features in iOS 13.

We know that Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) is less than two months away and the rumors about iOS 13 have already started emerging. As of now, according to a new report by 9to5 Mac, iOS 13 could feature a system-wide dark mode, an undo gesture, deeper multitasking options and updates for apps like Safari and Mail.

The long-awaited system-wide dark mode will appear in a similar manner to the already existing one in macOS, according to the report. The upcoming dark mode feature would work on almost all iPad apps. There are several other changes expected in the operating system to help users with multitasking and to increase productivity.

Meanwhile, if you are using an iPad, you might be able to run the same app in multiple windows. You would even drag these around the screen, stack them on top of each other or display them side by side.

In addition, the hefty iOS undo feature, which until now has involved shaking the device, could be handled by a simple gesture. On all Apple devices using iOS, especially on iPads, you might be able to use undo and redo functions by just sliding three fingers left or right respectively, on the keyboard space. The upcoming feature will also make it easier to select multiple items in table and collection views by dragging several fingers across them.

iOS 13 is also likely to add better font management, an overhauled Reminders app, improved language support, a new look for the volume user interface and apparently better filters to avoid accidental “Hey Siri” activations.

The most popular apps on iOS, Safari, and Mail are also going to get significant updates. At least for the iPad users, Safari would automatically prevent the desktop versions of certain websites from displaying versions more tailored to mobile screens. Meanwhile, the Mail app could add a read later feature for messages, as well as upgraded filters that funnel emails into searchable categories including purchases, travel and “not important.”

iOS 13 would come with many other important features when it will be launched at WWDC on 3rd of June, so until then take everything with a pinch of salt.
