The news that Apple is testing a new iPhone with a triple rear camera setup and USB-C isn’t the only iOS news that’s leaked out today.
Apple is planning to launch a new version of its lower-cost iPad as soon as this spring. A new report from Bloomberg says that it’ll have a 10-inch screen and Lightning port. Also said to be in the works is a new, cheaper iPad mini.
Switching over to software, Apple is said to be working on a dark mode for iOS 13 as well as improvements to its CarPlay software. iPad-specific features like a new home screen, improvements to file management, and the ability to tab through multiple versions of an app like web pages are also said to be coming with iOS 13.
Apple is reportedly planning to launch a magazine subscription service and a service with original video content this year.
iOS 12 didn’t bring many iPad-specific features, instead focusing on improving performance, especially on older devices. The iOS 13 details mentioned in today’s report sound pretty enticing, though, because the iPad-specific features sound like they’d help to make the iPad more like a full-featured computer. The dark mode would also be welcome, especially now that Apple uses OLED screens on some of its iPhones.
