iOS 13 available for download – List of Comaptible devices
The final version of iOS 13 is now available to Apple users. The highlight of this version is the dark mode, which will darken the user interface of the entire operating system at the selection by the user.
The new mode will also be available in Apple applications such as iMessage or Photos. All third-party applications that have Dark Mode support will automatically be actiavted once upgraded to iOS 13.
In iOS 13, the company doubled the application download speed and accelerated by 30% face scanning via Face ID. At the same time, Apple got rid of old sores – removed the restriction on the size of downloaded applications in the App Store via the mobile network, removed the large volume control window that covered most of the screen, and even added a separate button for emoji. Apart from these new features users can also get quick access to settings through the Control Center in the new version.
As usual at Apple, the list of compatible devices is extensive. The oldest to receive this upgrade are the iPhones 6S and 6S Plus, released in 2015. In addition to iPhones, the seventh-generation iPod Touch will also have access to iOS 13.
