iOS 13 is expected to debut at Apple’s WWDC (Worldwide Developers Conference) 2019 that starts on June 3. But weeks ahead of its formal announcement, key features of the new iOS version have been leaked. The next iOS build is said to bring a dedicated Dark Mode to iPhone and iPad. Also, it is claimed to enhance the existing productivity experience by adding the ability to have multiple windows and a new undo gesture specifically for iPad users. Apple is also likely to improve the “Hey Siri” rejection on iOS 13 to avoid accidental wake up instances for its voice assistant. Alongside the iOS 13 update, this year’s WWDC is likely to be a place where Apple would unveil macOS 10.5, watchOS 6, and tvOS 13.

Citing people familiar with the development of iOS 13, 9to5Mac claims to have leaked major new features that Apple is probably building for its next mobile operating system. The first change in the iOS 13 is said to be the addition of Dark Mode.

We already heard the implementation of a system-wide Dark Mode for iOS devices that would be similar to what arrived on Mac machines through macOS 10.14 Mojave last year. However, the new report claims that the new Mode would be accessible through the Settings and include a high contrast version similar to what’s available on macOS.

A Bloomberg report recently claimed that Apple has a multistep initiative, codenamed “Marzipan” to help developers build apps that can work on iPhone and iPad in addition to Mac machines. While the project is reportedly planned for 2021, iPad apps running on the Mac are said to use Marzipan to bring the same Dark Mode support on both systems.
