    Looks like iOS 13 will be a major revamp and is coming around September sometime.

    Anyone tried iOS 13 beta yet? Comments?

    One of the improvements is a trick with battery recharging to prolong battery life....

    Checking the changes list, I think "major" is quite the oversell. Apple are catching up in their app suite with what is already available from multiple third parties, and a new theme is a pedestrian feature (we've had software/interface themes for decades, kids).

    The apparent speed bump is nice, but illustrates how poorly optimised iOS was to date. That's a nifty way for marketing to cover up for previously poor engineering.

    It's getting more and more difficult to sift through shill hype for any real software news these days.

    Couple of behavior things I’m not keen on but overall ok and I’m getting used to it.

    Trying beta 6 now.
