Apple’s big annual iOS updates follow a predictable program. Therefore, we are reasonably sure about the following timing.
June 1, 2019: Apple announces and demonstrates iOS 13 at WWDC
June 2, 2019: immediately after the demo, developers will be offered a pre-release beta version of iOS 13
3 July 2019: a public beta version is available, available to all registered users. (To install a beta version of iOS.)
4 July-August 2019: a series of update beta will be released, each of which approaches the final version
September 5, 2019: the latest public version of iOS 13.0 is released
Apple will continue to update iOS 13 and release minor updates like iOS 13.1 by 2019. Most of these updates consist of tweaks and security patches. However, sometimes this adds a relatively important feature.
Which iPad and iPhone can run iOS 13?
Here is the list of devices currently running iOS 12.
1. iPad Pro (10.5), iPad Pro (11), iPad Pro (12.9, 2017 and 2018)
2nd iPad 2017, iPad 2018
3. iPad mini 2, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 4
4. iPhone 5s, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X / XS / XS Max / XR
5. iPod touch (sixth generation)
Apart from the new products, this is the same list that Apple released last year for iOS 11. For some time, no devices have been removed from the list, which makes us nervous for owners of iPhone 5s and iPad mini 2 : for iOS 13 there may not be an all-clear.
New features in iOS 13
We hope that 13 will be a lucky number for iPhone and iPad owners.
Reports show that several planned features have been postponed from the update of iOS 12 to iOS 13. In this way, the company has been able to implement stability improvements and bug fixes with priority for iOS 12.
On Twitter, Bloomberg journalist Mark Gurman discussed some of the expected features of what he calls “Yukon”, the code name for the 2019 update. He says the files will be reviewed and will show cards in the apps, two screens of the same app side by side and updates for Apple Pencil.
Interestingly, Gurman points to a redesign of the main screen focusing on the iPad. This is in line with a previous Axios forecast that “an update of the home screen” has been postponed to 2019.
Siri has received some important updates in iOS 12, in particular the new aspect of Siri shortcuts. But with the Siri team that seems to have expanded (according to the Fortune report, there were 161 openings in relation to Siri in April) and the attitude of the former head of the IIA of Google, we believe that there are further improvements in sight.
