iPhone with iOS 13.1.1
iPhone with iOS 13

Apple’s website announced recently the new iOS 13 operating system with a bold statement:

A whole new look. On a whole new level.

Truly, the iOS 13 was full of bugs according to an article on Forbes when it was released a week ago. I waited for the release of iOS 13.1 to upgrade from iOS 12 and it still had some bugs, but I have not discovered anything particularly annoying, until now at least.

But a few minutes ago I have installed the latest update, the iOS 13.1.1 and I expect to see even more bugs go away.


  • Systemwide Dark Mode
  • Revamped Photos app
  • New Photo editing interface
  • Sign in with Apple option
  • Location data limits
  • Look Around view in Maps
  • New Reminders app
  • Swipe to Type

I love the new features, especially the new Swipe to type and the improved Photos App.

Swipe to Type

Since I had moved from Androids to iPhones a few years ago, the only feature that I was really missing from Android was the Swipe. Since my thumbs are too big to type quickly on a phone, I had to type with just one finger, and not having Swipe was a major hindrance. But now I am back to swiping even with an iPhone, and I am surely happier, because it’s a lot faster for me.

Photos app

I also love the improved Photo App. Now the Photos app introduces a new feature that curates the entire Photos library and shows a selection of highlights from your life by day, month, or year. Photos and videos are intelligently organized, making it easier to browse and review memories.

The Photo editing tools has also been improved to make it easier to edit your images.

What is even better, iOS 13 makes most of the photo editing tools available for video editing, so that you can now rotate, crop, and apply filters even to videos.
