Today, just in time, Apple has released the final version of iOS 13. It can already be downloaded by the owners of all compatible devices both by air and using the iTunes utility, which will be disabled only with the release of macOS 10.15 Catalina in October. The release build of iOS 13 has the same build number as the Golden Master version, released a week ago. This means that according to the functional content and the level of performance, the updates will be completely identical. Hence the conclusion: if you have already tested iOS 13 Golden Master and you did not like it, it will not be better. At least until iOS 13.1.
iOS 13 will be released on September 19
iOS 13 has become one of the richest innovations in versions of the Apple mobile OS that have been released in recent years. It seems that only iOS 7 can compete with it in the number of changes. Despite the fact that there are not so many external transformations, the functional content of the update turned out to be at the highest level.
What a night theme looks like in iOS 13
This year, Apple made concessions to users and added support for the night theme in iOS 13, despite the fact that two years ago the company’s management assured that it would not do this. Since the night theme is system-wide, its activation will change the color of the interface not only of the OS itself, but also of pre-installed applications, without extending only to third-party software.
Download Manager in Safari
For a long time, the mobile version of Safari remained only a miserable shadow of the desktop. However, in iOS 13, the differences became much smaller, because Apple not only expanded the ability to configure the browser, but also provided it with a built-in download manager that allows you to download files of any formats and sizes, as well as get quick access to them.
How Find My App Works
The Find My app is the result of a merger of the Find My iPhone and Find My Friends utilities. It incorporated not only their best features, but also received the function of searching even discharged devices. This was made possible thanks to the Bluetooth Low Energy protocol, which is installed in many Apple devices. It allows them to send signals that receive iPhone passing users, which in turn determine the location of the loss and transmit this data to the owner.
How to connect a controller from Xbox or PS4 to iPhone
With the release of iOS 13, users of compatible devices will be able to connect game controllers from Xbox and PS4 to them without the need to install supporting software. They will come in handy in games from Apple Arcade, many of which are optimized for working with controllers. Simply turn on Bluetooth and establish a connection.
3D Touch Gestures
3D Touch in iOS 13
Despite the fact that Apple refused to use 3D Touch in the new iPhone, the company made gestures that were previously only available to iPhone owners with the appropriate sensor, accessible to everyone. Now, instead of reinforced keystrokes, holdings are used that allow you to call the context menu of applications, preview links and reply to messages.

For tablets, a separate operating system will be provided, which is called iPadOS. It has almost the same set of functions as iOS 13, but it differs from it in a number of interface features that make using the operating system on the big screen more comfortable. For example, the ability to detach and transfer windows of running applications, as well as arrange them in a way convenient for the user.

iPadOS, like iOS 13.1, will be released on September 30th. By that time, Apple plans to finish testing both updates, bringing their work to perfection. In any case, I would like to believe in it, because iOS 13, although it works faster than iOS 12.4.1, it will be almost impossible to notice an increase without direct comparison.
