iOS 13 – Compatible Devices (Acc to Rumors)
So here it comes that you are probably looking for that your device will make into the list of iOS 13 compatible phone or not. So here we will tell which iPhone will get the update or have to satisfy with the old iOS 12. The list will of course according to the rumors and leaks which comes true most of the times.
Apple is doing quite well in providing updates to its phones. It is because of the one company that makes software as well as hardware. Unlike Android which hardly reaches to older phones because the update procedure is done by the Smartphone company. So here Apple clearly stands above compared to other Smartphones.
Last time with iOS 12 we have seen that it was released for many phones including some way older phones like iPhone 5s & iPhone 6. So if you have any of the two iPhone I have to sadly say that both of these phones are not going to get the update. And if we talk about iPhone SE & iPhone 6s, which are not going to get the iOS 13 update according to rumors. But for these two maybe Apple can make an exception so you have hope if you have one of these two phones. Check out the list below.

So these are the Apple products which are going to receive the latest iOS 13 update.
iOS 13 – Features (Expected)
iOS 13 is one of the biggest update coming in WWDC. Unlike iOS 12 it will come with a lot of changes. Last year Apple announced iOS 12 which is very similar to iOS 11. But Apple users are now bored of using the same and same user interface. So Apple should come with something different this time to complete users requirement. As you know the leaks and rumors are already begin and there are a lot of features came in front that you should know.
This is the most interesting features that are coming to iPhone & iPad with iOS 13 update. They should have brought the dark mode earlier because many Android Phones have already this feature and Apple phones don’t. The Apple devices come with an amazing display and the Dark Mode will actually look even better. So are you interested to get Dark Mode on your phone or you are more interested in other feature let us know.
You can also experience Dark Mode feature on your iOS 12 with Jailbreak. But I guess not many of us (Apple users) don’t like Jailbreak or any modification instead we like to be more secure. The Dark Mode will take effect in the whole UI including Settings, System Apps, Home Screen and more.
Apple always brings cool emojis in every update. Similarly, in iOS 13 Apple is bringing more than 200 Emojis which includes emotions, animals, etc. Now you will have more options to show your emotions with new cool emojis.
If you like emojis then iOS 13 will be a good update for you. Emojis makes conversation easier by describing what you want to say without writing a single word. Along with emojis, Apple is also bringing 4 new Animojis including Cow, Mouse, Octopus and an emoji face. So there will be a total of 28 Animojis including these four.
New Homescreen Setup
We all are using the same homescreen setup in every iPhone and iPad for many years. And we are going to see a different home screen setup in the iPad, iPhone, and even Carplay. So it will be interesting to see something different in iOS.
The new home screen was set to launch with iOS 12 but due to some reason including compatibility, Apple skipped it. And now finally we are going to get a new design on Homescreen. Till now we don’t know how its gonna look but soon it will be out.
Revamped File Apps
With iOS 13 Apple may be going to give more controls to users over their files with the new revamped file manager. There are many restrictions on using File Manager but in iOS 13 you might have more control over your file not like Android but at least you have some controls. It is done while considering the security as a top priority so you must not expect much of a change.
Updates for iPads
If we look into past updates pattern, every alternate year Apple focus on iPad like iOS 9, iOS 11 and now iOS 13. So you can expect various changes for iPads on the new upcoming iOS 13 updates. The changes include Mouse supports by USB as well as Bluetooth. So in upcoming updates, you will be able to use Mouse to control iPad and work like PC.
With the new update, users have more control and access to external drives and DSLRs connected by USB-C port. So you can expect fast and easy transfer of images & videos.
Revamp Camera App
While we are seeing many changes on Camera App from Android phones. Apple also must provide a new revamped camera App or at least add new features. Like we can change the resolution within a click without going to camera settings.
Last year there were rumors that it is coming to iOS but Apple didn’t add this feature. But now it has more chances to make it in iOS 13. It would really a big step for Apple if they make changes to the Camera App for better user experience.
Last time with iOS 12 Apple brought some interesting gestures. And this time too we can expect some new gestures for easy control. The gestures will make easier to use iPads because of the big screen.
The gesture that might come with iOS 13 will be Undo and Redo where we can undo or redo recent input text by tapping three times on the keyboard area and a slide to left or right. The other new gesture will let users select multiple items in table and collection views.
These are some of the features that you can expect in iOS 13 and there are also more features that are going to come along with these features. So how do you like the upcoming iOS 13 features, let us know what you think about it. As soon as we get any news about the latest rumors and leaks we will update it.
