iOS 13

Dark Mode introduces a dramatic new look for iPhone. It’s thoughtfully designed to make every element on the screen easier on your eyes and is seamlessly integrated throughout the system. And it’s simple to turn on from Control Center or set to automatically turn on at night.

Portrait Lighting control

Virtually adjust the position and intensity of each Portrait Lighting effect, so you can easily sharpen eyes or brighten and smooth facial features just like a photographer in a studio would.1

All‑new Photos tab

The Photos tab has been redesigned to help you find, relive, and share your favorite memories. Using on‑device machine learning, it intelligently hides similar photos and reduces clutter, like removing screenshots and receipts, so you can focus on your best shots. You’ll also see your library come to life with auto-playing Live Photos and videos.

Redesigned editing

A streamlined editing experience gives you powerful new tools and better control over effects. Adjustment dials make it easy to apply an edit. And when you do, you can see at a glance which effects have been increased or decreased.

Sign in with Apple

Now you can sign in to apps and websites with the Apple ID you already have. No filling out forms or creating new passwords. Just tap “Sign in with Apple” and after a quick Face ID or Touch ID confirmation, you’re all set. Apps can ask only for your name and email address, and if you prefer, we can create a unique email address that forwards to your real one. We won’t track your activity and you’re in control of your data.

HomeKit Secure Video

Footage from home security cameras contains your most personal and sensitive data. So we designed an end‑to‑end encrypted system where your video is stored securely to iCloud, where only you and the people you invite into your Home app can view it. It’s free with an iCloud account and doesn’t count against your storage plan.2


New location controls and transparency features help you stay more in control of your data. Choose to allow apps access to your location just once. And there are more protections than before from people who want to track you without your permission.

All‑new Reminders app

Now it’s even easier to create and organize reminders. The quick toolbar lets you add dates, times, locations, flags, photos, and scanned documents. And Siri suggests reminders you might want to add, like creating a reminder while you make plans in Messages.

ARKit 3

ARKit 3 puts people at the center of augmented reality. People Occlusion allows AR content to realistically pass behind and in front of people in the real world. It makes AR experiences more immersive while also enabling fun green screen–style effects. And Motion Capture lets developers record a person’s movements in real time with a single camera and incorporate it into their apps.9
