Apple previews iOS 13

Apple has finally discovered Dark Mode, making it a highlight of its unveil for its updated iPhone operating system



Using on-device machine learning, Photos now curates the library to highlight the best images, automatically hiding clutter and similar photos to showcase significant events from the past day, month or year.
Photo editing is more comprehensive and intuitive, Apple says, with new tools that are easier to apply, adjust and review. With a swipe, effects can be increased or decreased to create a different look, providing photographers with more creative possibilities and control over their images. In iOS 13, most photo editing tools are now available for video editing, making it possible to rotate, crop or apply filters within the Photos app.

Portrait Lighting adjustments can be made in the Camera app to virtually move the light closer, to sharpen eyes and brighten and smooth facial features, or push the light farther away to create a subtle, refined look. A new High-Key Mono effect creates a monochromatic look for Portrait mode photos.

Private Sign In with Apple

Apple is introducing a more private way to simply and quickly sign into apps and websites. Instead of using a social account or filling out forms, verifying email addresses or choosing passwords, customers can use their Apple ID to authenticate and Apple will protect privacy by providing developers with a random ID. In cases where developers choose to ask for a name and email address, users have the option to keep their email address private and share a random email address instead. Sign In with Apple has two-factor authentication built in for an added layer of security. Apple says it does not use Sign In with Apple to profile users or their activity in apps.

The new Maps

Apple says that, after driving 4 million miles to rebuild the basemap from the ground up, it is delivering a new Maps experience with broader road coverage, better pedestrian data, more precise addresses and more detailed landcover. The new map is available in select cities and states, and will roll out across the US by the end of 2019 and to more countries in 2020.

A new Look Around feature delivers street-level imagery of a city with smooth and seamless transitions. iOS 13 has brought additional features to the Maps app, including Collections to share restaurants, travel destinations or places to shop, and Favourites for navigating to frequent destinations, such as home, work, the gym or school, with a tap from the launch screen.
