An advantage of using Apple devices is that the company keeps most of the lineup up to date with the latest operating system. Take iOS and iPadOS 1
During that time, Apple was constantly adding new features to each update, including the most recent launch ofadding . A favorite new feature brings us a Dropbox-like experience for Apple storage on your iPhone, iPad and Mac.
From the first celebrated features in iOS 13 to the new crop, we'd also like to highlight the lesser-known gems, from a new type of voice search to a much-needed volume control and a new. You can discover them all below.

Optimized Battery Charging
Routine battery charging of your iPhone ($ 900 from Best Buy) and storing it for an extended period of time can damage your battery over time . A new option in iOS 13 aims to extend the life of your battery by learning your charging habits and preventing the battery from immediately charging to 100%.
If you normally charge at night while you sleep, Optimized Battery Charging will keep your iPhone's battery at 80% most of the night, finishing the last 20% of the charge just before your alarm goes off.
To use the new features, go to Settings > Battery > Battery Health and enable them.
Using the new scroll bar
When you browse a web page in Safari, a new scroll bar appears on the right side of the screen. Just instead of just being a handy way to see where you are on a page, you can now use it to scroll faster. Try it out by starting to scroll a page, then long-press the slider and drag it up or down. The faster you drag, the faster Safari will scroll.
Scan documents in the Files app
With the redesigned Files app, you can now scan documents and save them directly to your device or cloud storage with little effort. Open the app Files select the tab Browse tap the three-dot icon in the top right corner and then Scan documents . Hold your device over the document you want to scan and it should automatically capture the page. You can scan multiple pages in one PDF file and then save it to iCloud, or import it into another app when you're done.
Searching for iMessage really works now
Searching for past messages in the iMessage app has always been terrible. It just didn't work. That has changed. You can now search for a single word or phrase and the results will be displayed almost immediately.
It's pretty cool. To try it, open the Messages app, swipe down to reveal the search field and type. Neat right?
Search for your iPhone with your voice
Wherever you find a search bar in Apple's own apps, you will notice that there is now a microphone on the right. Tap the new icon to enter your search query with your voice instead of typing it out.
Apps such as Settings, Email, Messages and Today View are just a few examples of where to find the new voice search option.
Share photos with or without location information
You can now delete location information from a photo when you share it directly from the Photos app. The new option means you can geotag the photo and see where the photo was taken, but when you share it via social media, email, or messages, you can delete that information and keep all location information private.
Select a photo (or photos) you want to share in the Photos app, then tap Options at the top of the screen and toggle Location from under the section labeled Includes .
Sharing iCloud Photos
If you share a large number of photos or a long video, Apple automatically uploads everything to iCloud and creates a shareable link that you can send. It's a useful feature if you're trying to limit your data usage, but it can also be annoying if you just want to send the files. You don't have to do anything but select a few photos and videos to send via Messages, but if you prefer not to use iCloud, we have a.
New Volume Indicator
Another long-awaited feature that iOS users have begged Apple to change is the volume indicator. You know, the pop-up that takes over the screen when you adjust the volume while watching YouTube or Netflix?
The indicator in iOS 13 is much smaller and slides in from the side of your screen. As you adjust the volume, it shrinks down to just a small line, hiding everything when you find the right volume level. Thanks, Apple.
The "hidden" part here is that when that white bar appears on your screen, you can use your finger to drag the volume up and down instead of using the physical volume buttons on the side of your iPhone or iPad.
iMessage and FaceTime get dual SIM support
Business users and international travelers will appreciate the addition of iMessage and FaceTime support for the second number when using two SIM cards .
Apple added support for Dual SIM with the launch of the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max ($ 1,000 at Best Buy) and iPhone XR ($ 599 at Apple) . The feature is useful for those who don't want to carry separate personal and work phones, or those who travel internationally frequently and need a data plan that's cheaper than roaming charges.
Before iOS 13, users could only use one phone number for iMessage and FaceTime.
Removing apps from the update screen
Managing old apps installed on your iPhone or iPad ($ 460 at QVC) is never a priority, and in any case it is not for me. I know that I checked the App Store while an app is being updated knowing that I will never launch that app again. But since the app is not easy to find on my home screen, I don't need to find and delete it.
After installing iOS 13 or iPadOS, the next time you see an app you no longer need in the Updates list, swipe left over the list and tap Uninstall.
Use a mouse to control your iPad
It's right: Fromyou can use a mouse or trackpad to navigate your phone or tablet. Apple added support with the latest update, and it's a much better experience than the slightly hidden mouse support we saw earlier.
Pair a Bluetooth mouse or pad with your iPad in the Bluetooth settings just like you would a wireless headset, and you will see the new pointer appear on the screen of your iPad. Customize how it works in Settings > General > Mouse / Trackpad.
Remove app size restrictions on mobile data
Apple has finally given us the option to remove App Store download limits. This means that if you want, you can download a game of more than a gigabyte on your mobile data plan.
Go to Settings > iTunes & App Store > App Downloads to remove the limit or ask the App Store if you want to download all apps from more than 200 MB.
Safari now has a download manager
You can now download files when using Safari on an iPhone and iPad. The Downloadmanager icon will not be displayed unless you have an active (or recently active) download. Your download is automatically saved to a Downloads folder in your iCloud Drive account, which you can access in the Files app.
Long Screenshots of Websites
If you've ever had to take multiple screenshots of a webpage to capture the text of an article, you'll be glad to know that iOS 13's screenshot tool has a new trick. Open Safari and take a screenshot of each website and immediately tap the thumbnail preview. Above the screenshot are two options: Screen and Full Page .
The function works in Safari, Pages, Numbers, Keynote, Mail or Apple Maps.
If you select Full Page the entire web page you view will be converted into a PDF file that you can then crop, annotate and save in the Files app.
Remember that. That's enough to get all your friends and family members together. If you are just getting started with iOS 13 or iPadOS 13, . And in the unfortunate event that you break your phone, don't panic – .
