iOS 13, iPadOS: Here’s a list of all iPhones and iPads that will get the update
Earlier this week, at the World Wide Developer Conference (WWDC) 2019, Apple released the next iteration of iOS for iPhones and a separate iPadOS for the iPads. The updates bring with it several apps that have been rebuilt from the ground up and several features that have been heavily redesigned. For instance, iOS 13 now has system-wide dark mode, improved keyboard typing with swipe functionality, improved Apple Maps, a single sign-in feature, among others.
Here’s all that’s coming to iOS 13.
iPadOS, on the other hand, will now allow Apple to offer features that are particularly useful for the iPad, including multitasking features, including a split-screen feature, Slide-Over and multitasking improvements, and also changes to the dock.
All details about the iPadOS here.
While these new features are exciting, what’s critical to know is if you should really be excited for them! Will your smartphone get all these new features?
