According to a Bloomberg report, with the arrival of iOS 13, adjustments will be made to the user interface, including a new animation when
multitasking starts and applications close. In addition, the widgets that appear to the left of the home screen would have a cleaner appearance.
iOS 13 would also bring a dark mode optimized for night viewing, which can be enabled in the Control Center and an update of the health application, which will now include information on “hearing health”, such as the intensity with which it plays the music in the headphones or the noise level of the external environment.
There will be a new feature similar to third-party applications, Duet Display, and Luna Display, which will allow users to use their iPad as a second Mac screen. App
updates are also expected such as Apple Books, Screen Time, the tool to control the Use of the device, and Maps, which will now facilitate the configuration of frequent locations, such as home or work addresses.
By not receiving the updates, the devices not only will not deal with these new features but also will be more exposed to cyber attacks and malware propagation, since updates usually release security patches that correct possible vulnerabilities.
