Facebook Messenger Dark Mode now available to all

Facebook Messenger Dark Mode now available to all

As with the macOS take on dark mode, you may be able to use a high-contrast version on your phone or tablet, while iPad apps that can run on Mac might work with dark mode on both systems.

iPad apps are getting multiple windows, the report claims.

Undoubtedly there are even more new features to come in iOS 13. In addition, the report says that there will be improved multitasking on the iPad with iOS 13, including support for multiple windows and stackable cards in apps. Facebook Messenger users can now directly enable dark mode, no emojis necessary. These cards can also be stacked on top of each other, and use a depth effect to indicate which cards are on top and which are on the bottom.

A more efficient "undo" gesture for texts can also be expected in the new OS. You can fling them away to dismiss. You'll swipe with three fingers in the keyboard area - left to undo, right to redo. To make users comfortable with the gesture, Apple will show a tutorial the first time they open the keyboard.

Generally, the iOS 13 update seems to be geared towards various productivity functions and is focusing on new gestures.

Safari on the iPad, meanwhile, will automatically load the desktop version of a website when appropriate, eliminating a common issue in which websites render an iPhone version on the iPad's larger screen. The Mail app meanwhile could add a read later option for messages, as well as upgraded filters that funnel emails into searchable categories including purchases, travel and "not important". Instead of installing new fonts that can be used for your Apple gadget's text interface, new fonts can already be found via a font management panel in the settings.

But wait, there's more. iOS 13 will also feature a redesigned Reminders app, better "Hey Siri" rejection, better multilingual support for keyboards and dictation, and expanded in-app printing controls, 9to5Mac explains.
