Dark mode, universal undo gestures touted to arrive in iOS 13
Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference has historically given us our first look at the next version of iOS and this year is expected to be no different.
A highlight feature of the mobile operating system update will be a dark mode, which will trigger apps to display with darker backgrounds and lighter text and other elements, in a similar way to macOS , according to people “familiar” with its development who spoke to 9to5Mac . Changed in the Settings app, the mode will also include a high contrast version.
So far, it has been confirmed “iOS 13” will include a new batch of emoji , including extra hair and skin options, and stylized expressions.
iOS 13 will also introduce a proper undo gesture for iPad. To activate it, you’ll use a three-finger tap on the keyboard area. From there, sliding left or right will enable undo and redo functionality, respectively.
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.
Another major change is based around multitasking on iPad. Apps will be able to have multiple windows, which can be detached from their location using a drag gesture and moved around the iPad display, stacked to keep them tidy.
