Another novelty of iOS 13.4 that the email toolbar, which is at the bottom of the screen (photo above), now consists of four buttons: send to trash, move message, flag, and reply.

According to 9to5Mac, the new design accommodates the answering buttons and trash can at both ends because iOS 13 users were complaining that they pressed the “delete” button when they wanted to answer for both being too close.

There is also the feature iCloud Folder Sharing, which allows you to share your iCloud folder and files with someone else. At the time when the iOS 13 was announced, this feature was presented as one of the novelties, but it was eventually removed to allow more time to refine it. Now, it has been reintroduced with the iOS 13.4 Beta.
