All that is known about iOS 13!

13 iOS operating system for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch new generation is under active development. Despite the fact that iOS release date 13 September 2019, about the upcoming update already has a lot of information. In this article we have collected all reliable information about upgrading and told that is new in iOS 13 and which devices will support IOS.

Date of presentation iOS 13 — June 2019

The month of the announcement of each new version of iOS known in advance. Apple traditionally introduces new firmware at WWDC developer conference, which takes place in June.

In the case of iOS 13 no change in the standard for Apple the scheme is not expected. iOS 13 will be presented at the conference WWDC 2019, which will be held in the first half of June. The official announcement of WWDC 2019 will be held at the end of may 2019.

Moreover, we predicted the most probable date of the presentation of iOS 13, based on the dates of WWDC in years past. Usually, Apple holds the WWDC on the first Monday of June. If in 2019 the company does not change itself, then iOS 13 will be presented on 3 June.

What’s new in iOS 13

iOS 13 is really a major update for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch with a host of innovations. Insiders and well-known developers even predict that iOS 13 will be the biggest update the mobile “OSes” Apple after iOS 7.

And this really is background. In January 2018 checked the sources of authoritative edition of Bloomberg traveled to a secret meeting with Tim cook leading Apple developers. At this meeting resolved a future iOS.

Need to define the future of iOS development have arisen due to the sad state of iOS 11 and tens of thousands of negative reviews about the firmware from the customers. Then Tim cook and the team decided to postpone the major new features iOS 12 till 2019 to iOS 13. In iOS 12, as you know, it was decided to focus on increasing speed and stability. By the way, it turned out iOS 12 is recognized as one of the most stable and fast firmware for iPhone.

What “key” pending innovations in question? Sources Bloomberg was able to learn and, therefore, expect iOS 13 is very high.

Updated home screen

One of the main and certainly the most notable innovations, iOS 13 will become the updated home screen. How it will change the screen unknown — sources Bloomberg’t seen screenshots, I just heard that the update will be.

In this regard, you can expect anything. The experts have a lot of assumptions and perhaps the most interesting is the prediction of the appearance on the screen of the iPhone and iPad extensions in the style of Apple Watch. We are talking about small but useful widgets that can be placed on the main screen and the lock screen. However, we note again that this is only a guess.

Official information from trusted sources is very scarce — 13 will be updated iOS home screen. What to expect how large are the changes — all this while under a veil of secrecy.

Dark mode (Dark Mode)

The long awaited dark mode for iPhone and iPad is projected. Before the release of every new version of iOS rumors of Apple’s plans to finally realize the night theme. But every time rumors are only rumors.

In iOS, 13 the situation is different. First, the developers found in iOS 12 many references to the dark mode. In future innovation indicate a variety of identifiers that were not in iOS 11 and previous versions.

But the main discovery, directly hinting at the possible appearance of the dark mode in iOS 13, did the developer Steve Troughton-Smith Troughton. He found new screenshots of the Xcode development environment 10, which shows the iPhone apps with dark regime. As it turned out, the screenshots accidentally “leaked” Apple itself. In the API the app store, the Mac App Store, there was a 30-second video demonstrating the capabilities of the new version of Xcode 10. Apple closed access to it, causing the roller and fell to the developer.

And, of course, for Apple it would be just logical to create a dark mode in iOS 13. First, the innovation would bring tangible benefits to iPhone with OLED displays, which by the end of 2019 at Apple for five pieces. And secondly, the dark mode in iOS would lead the system to a single type of macOS, where the Dark Mode is already available.

New search photos

The same sources Bloomberg promised that iOS 13 will appear improved searching for photos in the Photos app. According to insiders, Apple has developed an unusual “smart” search that allows to find photos even in huge photo library in seconds.

New features for iPad

According to an insider Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, iOS 13 will be a lot of innovations specifically for the iPad. According to him, some of them wanted Apple to implement in iOS 12, but had to be postponed. Gurman predicts the appearance of a Split View for a single app, improvements to Apple Pencil and a new home screen design.

New types of applications

In the beginning of 2018, it became known that Apple is developing a special project, codenamed Marzipan. In the framework of this project the company is creating a system that allows developers to create universal app for iPhone, iPad and Mac.

Repeatedly referred to the sources of Bloomberg said that the project will be implemented in Marzipan iOS 13. Later, at the end of December 2018, a direct allusion to the appearance of a universal iOS app 13 found developer Steve Troughton-Smith.

What will be the benefit from similar applications for the average user? First, many universal apps will be enough to buy once and use on all your Apple devices. And secondly, with the launch of project Marzipan in the App Store and Mac App Store should see a lot of completely new applications previously inaccessible for iOS or macOS.

Updated Files

The app “Files” is not really often used by most iPhone and iPad users. IOS 13 Apple will try to fix it. According to sources of the resource Macworld, iOS 13 is expected to update the Files with new possibilities.

The Files will begin to support more file formats, in particular, used by different applications. This ensures that users can open, view, and edit various files without the need to transfer them to third-party applications.

Improve Face ID

In November 2018, the Apple itself did hint at another new feature of iOS 13. The company promptly filed a patent, which describes various improvements to the face detection Face ID. The most interesting improvement is associated with animaze — animated emoticons that iPhone users with Face ID you can create on the basis of the expressions of his face.

The patent pointed to the creation of Apple’s more “alive”, animaze. In particular, they will be added sounds. Due to them, animaze-the dog will bark, animaze-cat — meow, etc.

iOS 13: supported devices

What devices will support iOS 13? The official list of the models of iPhone, iPad and iPod touch that will receive the option to upgrade to iOS 13 will be known at WWDC 2019 during the presentation of the firmware.

However, the most likely list of devices that support iOS 13 is already known. With high probability, to iOS 13 will not reach all devices equipped with Apple A7 processor. These four devices at once: iPhone 5s, iPad Air, iPad mini 2 and iPad mini 3.

If the experts ‘ forecasts are confirmed, the full list of supported iOS devices 13 will look like the following:


  • iPhone XS
  • iPhone XS Max
  • iPhone XR
  • iPhone X
  • iPhone 8
  • iPhone 8 Plus
  • iPhone 7
  • iPhone 7 Plus
  • iPhone 6s
  • iPhone 6s Plus
  • iPhone 6
  • iPhone 6 Plus
  • iPhone SE


  • iPad Pro 12.9 inch (3rd generation)
  • iPad Pro 12.9 inch (2nd gen)
  • iPad Pro 12.9 inch (1st generation)
  • iPad Pro 11 inch
  • iPad Pro 10.5 inch
  • iPad Pro 9.7 inch
  • iPad 6th generation
  • iPad 5th generation
  • iPad Air 2
  • iPad Air
  • iPad mini 4

iPod touch

  • iPod touch sixth generation

The reason why Apple refuses to support iPhone 5s, iPad Air, iPad mini 2 and iPad mini 3 is the lack of processing power of these devices, experts say.

In addition, before the release of iOS 12 in 2018, it was assumed that iPhone 5s, iPad Air, iPad mini 2 and iPad mini 3 will not get this version of the firmware. But due to the fact that Apple decided to make iOS 12 the emphasis on increasing productivity, all older iPhone and iPad models could upgrade to the new firmware.

Since iOS 13 will focus on new features, most likely, the iPhone and iPad is weak by today’s standards A7 chip remain behind.

Release date iOS 13 — September 2019

As the date of the presentation, the release date of iOS 13 has a specifically defined period of time. Release date iOS 13 is the second half of September 2019.

For many years Apple releases a new iOS version in the second half of September, two weeks after the presentation of the new iPhone. There are no preconditions to ensure that in 2019, in the case of iOS 13 anything changes.
