Interestingly, you can use them for any chat any messaging app on your iPhone/iPad.

Tracking Apps

There are a few popular and widely-used menstruation and tracking apps like Flo currently in the market. But, iOS 13 & iPadOS 13 has already integrated this feature into the Health app and the Apple Watch as well. You should not worry since all your data is completely private. No can know that and Apple doesn’t have access to it either

Single Sign-On Feature

After Apple rolled out the Sign in with Apple button and other developers also knew about it, Facebook and Google sign-in buttons will be encountering a tough time. This new Apple service is completely private and any personal user data will be protected completely, including the images, with the app. However, it still authenticates the user using Face ID to make sure it’s not just a bot or a malicious party.

Apple’s option here is now much better and the process just takes a while for so that the industry can understand it at large.

Duet and Luna Display

iPadOS 13 has a new brilliant feature, called Sidecar. When it’s activated, your iPad will be turned in a secondary screen for your Mac. Just use the Apple Pencil to interact with buttons for a precise cursor input. You can also use your finger as well. Even when iPadOS 13 is still in the beta stage, many iPadOS users have reported that this feature worked smoothly without lag, even when you are using the wireless feature.

The reason here is that Apple controls both the hardware and software stack of your Mac and iPad. You can also create the code at an OS level to get this feature.

Fortunately, there are products and apps that already get this feature. Duet is a popular app, bringing this functionality for only $20. Luna Display would create a physical accessory for this feature and hopefully, it would be a reliable second screen connection. They have been upgraded by Apple feature, which can be activated just with one click without the need for money or third-party software installation.

Google Street View

Apple has already started mapping all major US cities in the new iOS version. At the end of this year, Apple will expand to more countries. It means more accurate maps. However, you will get Apple’s version of Google Street View as a bonus, which will be much better. Simply pan around anywhere and tap on a street to another to zoom it in/out.

Drawing Tablets

Once your iPad is connected with your Mac, you can use it as a drawing tablet through the Apple Pencil. With the improved Apple Pencil speed, it is good for a drawing tablet. Common design Mac apps such as Affinity Designer and Sketch are also adding support for it.

Photo and Video Editing Apps

iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 also come with a redesigned photo and video editor. It’s now much simpler to set basic photo edits. You can now edit filter intensity and the new tools like Highlights, Vibrance and more appear in the redesigned Photo and Video. If you are using third party apps Darkroom or Snapseed for editing, you will no longer need them.

All the photo editing tools are now available and you can easily crop a video with a popular aspect ratio directly from the app.

Security Camera Cloud Storage

You are capturing a home video, looking for trespassers or anything unordinary. However, this data will be transferred to a third party service where it processes the video and stores it. So, to help its iOS users, Apple has released a new feature in HomeKit app which can enable this feature, but it’s completely private and secure. The data from the home security video will be automatically encrypted on an Apple device in your home and it’s sent to Apple’s iCloud servers after the encryption. Apple doesn’t require the decryption keys, instead, it will be decrypted after downloading the video stream on a device.

You will have 10-day free back for your home security cameras, supporting the new HomeKit feature.


In iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 has a new keyboard when you can gesture type it. You can easily type by using on the keys, like third-party keyboard apps: SiwftKey, Swype or Gboard. With this great addition, you don’t have to download and install a third party keyboard apps anymore.


iOS 13 has a new system to track lost iPhones/iPads even when they are offline, as long as they have battery left. Apple has already created an offline Bluetooth network that can only be used for communicating with the location of Apple devices. This data is shared from one device to another, and totally anonymously.

This is something that iPhone/iPad users use Tile tracker for. In fact, Apple will be releasing the Tile style physical tracker in the near future.
