iOS 13 news
  • focused on increased performance
  • dark mode formally announced
  • brief discussion of app changes to things like Notes - look and feel, etc
  • major Reminder overhauls for smart lists, tagging people, marking it tied to places
  • new views in Photos, including Months or Years to showcase parts of your library and it's dynamic based off of context (if you always go to a certain event, a person's birthday, etc)
  • updates to handing off to HomePod, CarPlay, etc
  • mentioning of other features like separate iCloud accounts, low data mode, etc


Overall theme: more hammering on privacy here too!

Holy fuck iOS is getting set up into iPad OS. Better multitasking, side by side, etc etc, all sorts of stuff.

So did they talk compatibility during the keynote? I was working so only able to watch from the corner of my eye. I don't recall hearing what devices were losing support if any.

No, I don't think that was mentioned at all.

Looks like it starts at A9. They're dropping two generations at once. Interesting.

Yeah, I heard A9 for the new emoji things so I kinda assumed that. This really sucks for those loving small phones like the SE. Heck, I have to see if my 7 is still compatible with that! I forgot what chip is in it.

It may require an A9 for the Memoji thing, but they said nothing of the cutoff for the rest of the OS. It is possible they'll dump a bunch of stuff, or it may simply be that they are just qualifying the fancy new Memoji stuff.

Since November 2016, I have tried to live my life without politics or football, and it has been the most peaceful time of my life.

The SE has an A9. The 7 has an A10.

If that's the case then they didn't drop support for any devices it sounds like.

Edit: iOS 13 isn't coming to the iPhone 5S, iPhone 6 or iPad Air

They dropped two generations (A7 and A8), actually.

That's a pretty reasonable list. It covers the last 5 years, they're all 64-bit, and they all have some form of biometric ID.

And I sure do wish Apple could sort out the iPad naming conventions. Holy cow, what a mess!

Yeah, that really does cover a large number of devices still.

Happy my 6sP made the cut, but it looks like I'll be moving on up soon since next year I'll likely be left out in the cold. #RIPheadphonejack

So it goes.

They briefly mentioned it, but I'm really hoping they update/improve CarPlay. I absolutely love it, but there is some room for improvement. One very simple addition would being able to have the temperature somewhere on the home screen. Maybe on the side menu above the cellular signal?

I like the addition of a HomeKit Garage Door button. Hopefully that's customized so add door locks or lights maybe?

Did they say they were opening it up more to Third Party apps? I was working so I was in and out of watching.
