Everything about iOS 13 Review
Apple releases interim updates for iOS throughout the year, but once a year it’s time for major changes. This fall, iOS 13 may show what Apple is planning for the future of the iPhone and iPad.
So count on a large amount of radical new functions, improvements to existing functions and possibly also a new design for the software of your iPhone and iPad.
iOS 13 Review : expected release
For years, Apple has kept a tight schedule when it comes to software, so we expect that the company will not deviate from this in 2019. That would mean that iOS 13 will be unveiled during WWDC 2019, Apple’s annual developer fair that takes place in June.
Apple presents the most important iOS innovations during a keynote, after which the first developer beta appears later that day. That gives developers the opportunity to prepare apps for the final release in September. The public beta of iOS 13 will also be released later that month, which means the following.
iOS 13 unveiling: on 3 June during the WWDC 2019 keynote
First iOS 13 developer beta: on 3 June after the WWDC keynote
First public iOS 13 beta: end of June or beginning of July 2019
iOS 13 release: in September 2019
We will update this page as soon as we know more about concrete data.
Which devices will support iOS 13
Because Apple has not yet officially announced iOS 13, we are not sure which devices support the update. However, by looking at previous years, we can make a reasonable estimate of the devices that will fall off this year.
With regard to iOS 12, we think that iOS 13 runs on the following devices:
- iPhone 2019, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR, iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6S Plus, iPhone 6S, iPhone SE, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus.
- iPad Pro 2018, iPad Pro 10.5, iPad Pro 12.9 and iPad Pro 9.7.
- iPad 2017, iPad 2018.
- iPad Air 2019, iPad mini 2019, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 4, iPad mini 3.
That would mean that the iPhone 5S, sixth-generation iPhone touch, iPad mini 2, iPad mini 3 and iPad Air fell out of the boat for the first time.
