CarPlay sees its most significant upgrade since launch over five years ago with iOS 13 this fall. Not only does Apple have new features in the works, but existing CarPlay functions are expanded and improved. What's in store for CarPlay fans when iOS 13 rolls out in September?
Anyone who uses iOS probably right now has a ton of open tabs in Safari. Being the default browser on your iPhone and iPad means every link you tap automatically opens up in Safari, typically leaving your device bogged down with open web pages. Maybe you left some tabs open to check at a later date and just forgot, or you just clicked a link by accident. No matter how they piled up, it can be annoying to have to continuously close multiple tabs on your iPhone or iPad.
Being able to track and limit your own iPhone usage is a great feature, but Apple's Screen Time lacks the right tools for parents to properly manage their children's usage. Instead of extending Screen Time to third-party apps so parents can set limits for individual apps, Apple has added "Communication Limits" in iOS 13. Parents can now control who their children can communicate with on their iOS device.
Apple is introducing Dark Mode to its devices with the release of iOS 13. Dark Mode gives your entire operation system and stock apps a dark color scheme. The new feature is great for low light situations and easier on the eyes when reading. It's also allows you not to disturb others when checking your device in low light public situations.
