Facebook Messenger Dark Mode is rolling out worldwide

  • iOS 13 to Reportedly Include Dark Mode, Multitasking Improvements

The system-wide Dark Mode can be enabled in Settings, delivering a high contrast look similar to macOS. iPad apps running on Mac (via Marzipan) will also use Dark Mode on both operating systems.

The new iPad features promise a more flexible way to use multiple apps at once. Dark mode cuts down the glare from your phone for use in low light situations, so you can use the Messenger features you love no matter when or where you are. Each one will contain sheets that are initially attached to one portion of the screen, but can be detached with a drag gesture, then becoming a card that can be moved around at will. These cards can be flung away to be dismissed.

Speaking of gestures, iOS 13 will introduce a new gesture to "undo" actions that will include a three finger tap gesture that sounds rather complicated.

Mail improvements. In iOS 13, the Mail app is being updated with category (marketing, purchases, travel, "not important" and more) filtering and a new Read Later queue. To make users comfortable with the gesture, Apple will show a tutorial the first time they open the keyboard.

Safari on the iPad will automatically ask for a desktop version of a website when necessary, preventing a common scenario that sees iPhone versions of sites popping up on the tablet (hello, YouTube).


Font management will also be improved as a part of iOS 13, with a new font management panel being a part of the OS.

To improve productivity in iOS 13, Apple will allow users to drag items in a list with multiple fingers or select multiple files at once by dragging their fingers across them.

But wait, there's more. iOS 13 will also feature a redesigned Reminders app, better "Hey Siri" rejection, better multilingual support for keyboards and dictation, and expanded in-app printing controls, 9to5Mac explains.

Apple has unveiled the newest members of the iPad family.
