Guilherme Rambo has brought the heat this Monday morning, reporting that iOS 13 will include a system-wide dark mode, a new universal undo gesture, a more robust version of Safari and better font management. Then there’s this:
There are many changes coming to iPad with iOS 13, including the ability for apps to have multiple windows. Each window will also be able to contain sheets that are initially attached to a portion of the screen, but can be detached with a drag gesture, becoming a card that can be moved around freely, similar to what an open-source project called “PanelKit” could do.
These cards can also be stacked on top of each other, and use a depth effect to indicate which cards are on top and which are on the bottom. Cards can be flung away to dismiss them.
All of this sounds great, and if Apple can unleash the iPad to do more at once, it could be a big year for the device, which still feels too chained to its iPhone roots.
