A few weeks ago, Apple Inc. officially introduced their newest version of their iOS – iOS 13. It comes with a lot of minor and major performance improvements. There are many users enjoying the update right now and there might also be some users out there that haven’t seen or experienced the changes at all. Therefore, by following the article written below, you will learn the top iOS 13 tips and tricks about the so called “hidden” features of this iOS 13 that you may not know about.
Top iOS 13 Tips and Tricks You Should Know
How to Enable Dark Mode
Nowadays, lots of applications and programs offer a dark mode. To avoid putting the iOS 13 on the rear view, it comes now with this new feature that allows users to choose between the light and dark mode theme on their iDevice. To do this, go to “Settings” > “Display & Brightness”, and then you can apply “Dark Mode” if you wish to.
How to Adjust Volume
One of the big improvement in this update was making the volume HUD less obstructive, which has been a major complaint from most iOS users. To adjust the volume, press the volume up or down button at the left side part of your iPhone/iPad, or you can just press the volume button (any) and slide your finger to its HUD to adjust the volume. As you continue to adjust the volume, the HUD becomes thinner.
How to Delete Apps
To delete apps in iOS 13, the usual way is still possible, but a new option on how to delete an app has also been added. This is another one of iOS 13 tips and tricks for iPhone. You’ll find the delete option when updating apps or viewing the installed apps on the App Store. From the update screen, you can delete unnecessary apps instead of updating them by simply dragging the app to the left and tapping the delete button.
How to Save Battery in iOS 13
iOS 13 users need to know how to economize on battery usage to make the device last longer with just a single charge. How can you do that? Users can check which applications use the most energy, causing the battery to drain by going to “Settings” > “Battery” or by going to “Settings” > “Screen Time” to see which app or notification is sucking up all of your battery’s juice, and you can choose to close the app or turn off the notifications to extend the battery’s life.
