iOS 13 has arrived. Apple's latest mobile operating system is packed with performance optimizations and enhancements. Anyone with an iPhone 6s and later can install iOS 13 from Settings to start using new features. Here are some highlights of iOS 13.
Your estimated time of arrival (ETA) is useful information whether you are meeting up with friends or trying to coordinate with your spouse or co-workers. Every navigation app gives you your ETA, which you can relay to whomever with a simple text, but many now let you send it directly from the app, including Apple Maps. Apple already addressed sending ETA with the Home ETA shortcut in iOS 12.
iOS 13 introduces a powerful new accessibility feature called Voice Control, that allows the user to accomplish just about anything that can be done through gestures by using verbal commands. While Siri can accomplish multi-step tasks like write a text or create a reminder, Voice Control not only does the same, but can also let the user thoroughly navigate through their iPhone using tap and swipe commands and a numbered grid overlay when necessary.
The physical Apple Card uses titanium instead of plastic, which is just one of the ways Apple's first credit card breaks from tradition. To create the white finish, a multi-layer coating process is applied to the titanium base. The owner's name and the Apple logo are laser-etched into the card.
