WWDC2019: Apple Introduces iOS13, Makes Fun Of Google's Android



Apple at its 2019 WWDC developer conference released a new Mac Pro, new iPadOS, iOS13 and more.

While announcing iOS 13, Apple's CEO Tim Cook said the share for Apple devices running iOS 12 was around 85% and he then took a shot at Google's Android, saying Android 9 Pie made by "the other company" only ran on 10% devices.

Google's CEO Sundar Pichai recently criticized Apple for selling "luxury goods" in the name of privacy.


Apple's dig at Google is true. However, you have to take into account the diversity and choice of Android devices. Apart from the Pixel devices made by Google which gets immediate OS update from the smartphone maker, it takes months for other device makers to optimize the updates to fit their device.

The latest version of Apple's iOS, the iOS 13 brought a lot of features to improve the overall user experience of iOS users.

According to Tim Cook, iOS 13 promises to come with performance improvements that will make Face Unlock 30% faster and apps to launch twice the speed when compared to 1OS 12.

Apple also said that it will shrink the size of app download on iOS 13, with apps downloads cutting down to 50% and apps updates also going  60% smaller.


One of  Apple's key focus during the WWDC 2019 was privacy. The Cupertino company said that privacy is a priority, and going in line with that, the company launched a new "sign in with Apple" feature that allow users to sing-in into websites without revealing any personal information on the web.

This feature is similar to Facebooks "Sign in with Facebook" feature that allows users to sing into apps and websites without filling in their details.


Apple says it has provided a "Hide My Email" option for users that wants to hide their email address from app developers. To hide users email addresses from app developers, Apple will randomly generate email address for users which will be used for forwarding of mails to users original email ID.

Apart from iOS devices, Apple's "Sign in with Apple" will also be available on the web


Another important announcement of Apple's iOS 13 is the arrival of a system-wide Dark Mode on iOS 13, following Google's Android foot steps. During the demo display, Apple's default apps like Maps, Apple Music and Notes were shown  to all have support for the dark mode feature under iOS 13.

Apple also redesigned its Map app, bringing new visual improvements and a feature that is similar to Google Street View.

The Cupertino giant also redesigned its reminders app and brought filtering options like "Schedules," "Flagged," "Today," and "All."

The redesigned reminder app will make use of artificial intelligence to suggest to users the time that they would like to get reminded.


To keep users off third-party editing apps, Apple has finally introduced a new photo and video editing tool to its default Photos app. The app allow users to adjust highlights, shadows, saturation, while balance, contrast, vignette, and brilliance.

Apple also brought to iOS 13 a feature it called Quick Path. This feature which is known as swipe while typing on Android, have long being existing on Android devices for years.
