Faster Wi-Fi Network Selection
This update was long overdue. iPhone and iPad users were anticipating a method through which they could connect to Wi-Fi networks from Control Center. To date, the users had to open the “Settings” to select a network for the Wi-Fi network.
With the new update, it is now possible to view and connect to available networks without even opening “Settings”. This is one of the most significant reliefs for iPhone and iPad users.
To use the new Wi-Fi shortcut, follow the steps given below.
- Open the “Control Center.”
- Long-press on the Wi-Fi icon until you can see all the connection toggles.
- Long-press on the Wi-Fi icon again and you will have a list of all the Wi-Fi networks.

Android users are enjoying the luxury of swiping their keyboards to type for much time. This has been made available, thanks to, third-party apps like Swype and Swiftkey. Finally, Apple has added this functionality, which is known as QuickPath Typing. It is much quicker and precise as pecking away at the virtual keyboard. This way, you also get spelling suggestions while typing. This feature is quite useful, especially when you are doing single hand typing.
How does it work?
QuickPath is kept “on” as default once iOS 13 is installed. It is very effortless to type. You simply need to place your finger on the keyboard and swipe it. For example, if you want to type “Favorite” start by placing a finger on the “F” key and then draw a line to “A” followed by the rest of the spelling. Connect the letters of each word. Once you are finished with the steps, remove your fingers from the keyboard. You can enter the next words similarly.
Now dark mode will be available in iOS 13 and iPad OS in place of the light screen. This is made accessible across the music, calendar, and photo apps.
How to Turn On the Dark Mode?
Swipe into the Control Center (either up from the bottom or down from the top right corner, depending on the iPhone you are using). Tap the bottom to toggle on the control. It is even possible to schedule dark mode to turn on, especially at night and turn it off during the day.
Video Editing Tools Added to the Photos App
The Photos app has received a significant boost with the iOS 13 and iPad OS update. It has now become easier to organize and surface photos. The edit tools also have a new improvised look. However, the most significant one is the ability to utilize all the picture editing tools that you have used on videos available in the Photos app. It is possible to add filters, adjust brightness, and even crop a video in the Photo app.
How to use Video Editing Tools in the Photos App?
The tools for video editing work in the same as the photo editing tools. The only difference being, the first screen showcases the option to trim the clip. The trim functions work the same way by dragging the yellow ends of the video to set the start and stop time of the clip you wish to save. This way, it is possible to do away with false starts and awkward endings.
Once you trim the video, it is possible to adjust and fine-tune the overall look of your clip. Next, save it to the Photos album. The great news is, the edits you make to the video are non-destructive. This way, if you add a filter and then crop the video and later decide to go back and undo it all, you can do that. The original video will remain as it is.
