If you are a fan of a dark mode on every device you own, you’re really going to love the next version of iOS.
That is because iOS 13, the iOS update which is probably going to be later this year, will finally add a dark mode.
The update will ship with a system-wide dark mode that you can switch in the main settings app. Similar to the dark mode in macOS, the iOS version will also enable a darker theme in your phone.
Also, on the outline for iOS 13: new multitasking features for iPad, an improved Mailing app, and a new “undo” feature.
The new iPad features also promise a much efficient way to use multiple apps. Instead of split-screen multitasking, the update would allow running apps to run in multiple, smaller windows.
While on the topic of gestures, iOS 13 will also introduce a new gesture to “undo” that includes a three finger tap gesture that sounds rather complex. (Though the current “shake to undo” iOS has used for many years is also totally unintuitive.)
The Mail app is also getting some variations to how emails will be organized as the app will be able to sort messages similar to Gmail and Inbox.
Finally, Apple will change the on-screen graphic that appears when you change your iPhone’s volume. Probably so the UI, which has been criticized for such a long time as it’s become its own meme, will not affect the entire screen just because you just want to adjust your volume settings.
Obviously, these changes are all still rumors for now. Nothing is certain until WWDC, Apple’s annual event where it shows new iOS and macOS updates. Until then, we will have to obsess with Twitter’s actually-black dark mode as we wait for more leaks.
