A lot has already leaked about iOS 13. The latest update for iPhones and iPads will come with a range of new features including system-wide dark mode. The iOS 13 update will also bring better privacy and parental controls. You can also expect big improvements to existing native apps such as Mail, Home, and Books.
Apple is also expected to give a preview of its new efforts to unify apps on desktop and mobile devices. This may also include phasing out iTunes on Mac. Apple is expected to replace iTunes with three new apps for the Mac – Music, TV, and Podcasts.
