This iOS 13 concept highlights app window, dark mode, new gestures and more

In these days many people are talking about iOS 13, Apple's next operating system that will take your iOS device to a new whole level, probably by decreasing the gap between mobile and desktop computing. 

A new concept has surfed on the web showing what iOS 13 will come with from  a system-wide Dark mode, multitasking improvements on the iPad, an improved Mail app, and more.

iOS 13 features

Many people would say what can we see in iOS 13 from features. A Brazilian developer and designer shared this concept and 9to5Mac contributor Guilherme Rambo. Let's see it.

System Wide Dark Mode

We all like to see a dark mode theme on our iOS devices as it has many useful features like letting you focus more, not hurting your eyes especially at the night. Apple will be bringing a system-wide iOS 13 that will be similar to Dark Mode found in macOS Mojave and it can be enabled from Settings. Apple will also be updating all its Marzipan iPad apps on macOS to support dark mode as well.

Better Safari and Mail app

It is expected that Apple will focus on the default mobile browser Safari and Mail app. The browser will automatically ask to render the desktop version of a website instead of its iPhone version. This will lead to an overall better browsing experience.

The Mail app in iOS is going to get some functionality improvements with iOS 13. It will allow users to sort their emails into various categories. It will also gain a new ‘Read Later’ option similar to the one found in Safari thereby allowing users to come back to an email at a later time.

Volume HUD, New Reminders App, More

Apple is finally improving the Volume HUD in iOS 13. It will be completely revamped to make it less obtrusive in nature. Additionally, the Reminders app will get a redesign and it will be a part of the next macOS release as well. “Hey Siri” detection will also improve along with multilingual support for the keyboard.

Font management will also be improved as a part of iOS 13, with a new font management panel being a part of the OS.

Better Multitasking on iPad

The article states that Apple will introduce iPad-specific changes in iOS 13 designed to improve collaboration in document-based apps, like Pages, Numbers and Keynote, including a new multi-selection gesture, light/dark styles for side-by-side apps and app windows.

On app windows:

iPad apps will support multiple windows, letting you work on multiple documents at once.

From the write-up:
Each window will also be able to contain sheets that are initially attached to a portion of the screen but can be detached with a drag gesture, becoming a card that can be moved around freely similar to what an open-source project called PanelKit could do.
On the new multi-selection gesture:
The focus on productivity on iOS continues with the inclusion of new gestures to allow for the selection of multiple items in table views and collection views, which make up for most of the user interfaces found in apps that list large amounts of data. Users will be able to drag with multiple fingers on a list or collection of items to draw a selection, similar to clicking and dragging in Finder on macOS.
So, boys and girls, what do you make of this report? And which rumored new features in iOS 13 are you looking forward to the most, and why?
