Yesterday, Apple held its most significant event of the year, during which the company revealed the iPhone 11 series and iOS 13. Fortunately, iOS 13 will roll out soon, on September 19th, but, unluckily, the first release of iOS 13 will come out without all those cool, promised features.
What will iOS 13 bring when it launches?
This year’s first iOS 13 release will come with some updates. Among them, we have an updated Apple Maps and improved Photos and Reminders applications. The most considerable addition would be the system-wide Dark Mode.
Apple Maps will now have a better interface that will show more data, favorite locations, and real-time public transit estimates. Besides, it will also provide a street view mode similar to that offered by Google Street View.
Other novelties include the new Find My application, swiping keyboard for improved typing, memojis that can turn into stickers, and a revamped Health app that comes with new tracking features and can connect to Apple Watch.

Besides, iOS 13 will also be compatible with the iPod Touch of the seventh generation.
More features to come with iOS 13.1
As we’ve said above, the first iOS 13 release will launch on September 19th with only some of the promised features. The other exciting functions that made the fans eagerly wait for iOS 13 will launch along with the iOS 13.1 version.
Accordingly, Apple decided to introduce in iOS 13.1 other features such as Siri shortcuts and its ability to read incoming messages, along with audio sharing between AirPods devices and the possibility to import pics into an app when a camera is connected to an iPhone.
iOS 13 will launch on September 19th, while iOS 13.1 would come with more features by the end of the year.
