Apple has just released its first iOS and iPadOS 13 beta, and it has taken a toll on all mobile users, which is almost the whole world’s population. iPadOS is a comparatively newer term coined by Apple for the operating system released for iPad.By beta, it means that this release by Apple is an initial draft release, not the final product. However, it is almost the same as the final release. This new beta release by Apple will undergo some testing through its distribution to a group of users as a sample, and based on the feedback of this testing, the final OS will be released.
But, what is so impressive about this release? This beta will be available to every one! To install it, you just need to install it like a regular software updates. This can be done by downloading a configuration file from Apple beta website. After that, your iPhone and iPad’s Operating System will switch to the iOs and iPadOS 13 beta software. You can use your device normally then onwards. However, according to users so far, there are still many bugs and shortcomings of using this beta version. Obviously, it is a test version and while it is made to resemble the final version as much as possible, it does not have everything that the actual iOS 13 will have.
The defects reported up till now include trouble browsing some websites and some apps being unresponsive. Since this is the beta version, users are advised not to install this beta version unless they have an extra iPhone or are okay with experimenting because some users have even reported their iPhone becoming completely unresponsive after downloading this iOS 13 beta.
The final version, that is the actual operating software of Apple – not the beta version – will be launched by September, according to the news so far. However, with Apple’s observation during the testing phases of the beta installations, the reported bugs will definitely be off the list when the actual system launches.
The new features of iOs and iPadOS 13 are:
More emphasis on personal privacy:
With the increasing concerns for privacy on social media and phones, Apple has taken care to make its users feel safe when using their Apple devices with this new OS. The new operating system to be launched will feature more permissions for accessing your location and other information in order to maintain your device with your consent.
The new OS allows dark mode to protect your eyes from too much strain when texting at night. In this mode, your screen goes black, and this saves battery as well as makes it easier to read text as it turns white on black background.
Look Around feature:
Just like Google map’s street view, Apple’s iOS 13 has a feature called Look Around that lets you have a satellite street view of the locations on the map. It shows the buildings, cars, houses, markets, roads etc in 3D which improves the user’s viewing experience.
The Photos app in your Apple devices will also be updated when you install this new iOS 13 with a new album view and other display styles.
Existing features like multitasking and other apps have been updated. The pencil is supposed to be faster functioning than before, and the overall performance of the system is expected to be more ‘refined’ and smooth.
These are the new features of the iOS and iPadOS 13 which are somewhat present in the beta OS currently, but are likely to perform better with the final release in September this year.
