Alongside its new iPhone launch, Apple has announced the official release date of iOS 13 — September 19. Users of supported iPhones will be able to get the new update once it rolls out. Much like Android, there isn’t much to stand out here. Apple is adding a dark mode, updating its emoji and updating its in-box apps. You’ll also have improved privacy features like Sign-in with Apple and faster performance, but otherwise, it’ll be business as usual for most users.
“iOS 13 brings new capabilities to the apps you use every day, with rich updates to Photos and Maps, and privacy-protecting features like Sign In with Apple, all while delivering faster performance,” said Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering. “We’re excited for customers to experience what’s coming to iPhone this fall and can’t wait for them to see how great everything looks in Dark Mode.”
iPhone users from the iPhone 6s and above will be able to download and run iOS 13 when it comes out next week. iOS 13. 1 will launch on September 30 to clean up whatever bugs Apple has left in iOS 13 when it releases.
