What's New in iOS 13: FaceTime correcting your look, data transfer between two wired iPhones and more!

Apple this week released third beta versions of its upcoming operating systems, including the iOS 13 it's the iPadOS 13. The developers wasted no time and have already put their devices to work with the new version, and obviously some news has been discovered.

FaceTime Call Attention Correction

In iOS 13 beta 3, Apple added a, say, very futuristic feature to make sure you're always looking at the device's camera during FaceTime video calls.

Call of FaceTime Attention Correction (something like “FaceTime Attention Fix”), the option uses a correction technology to adjust the image of your eyes in real time, so that you seem to be looking at the camera instead of the screen like informed the TechCrunch.

This, of course, can be enabled / disabled by the user in device settings; however, it seems to be working only on iPhones XS and XS Max, but it is probably also available for the iPhone XR.

FaceTime Personal Attention Correction on iOS 13 beta 3 is amazing.

Here are some comparison photos with @flyosity.

How iOS 13 FaceTime Attention Correction works: It simply uses ARKit to capture a depth / position map of your face and adjusts your eyes accordingly.

Notice the deformation of the line between the eyes and the nose.

This technology, however, is not exactly indicative: In 2017, app designer Mike Rundle "predicted" that Apple would adopt a similar correcting feature at some point.

This is a feature that I predicted would come in the coming years, there in 2017. Very surprised that it is already here. https://medium/@flyosity/iphone-xx-futurology-a44d06b3c8c4

We can say this a lot “Black Mirror”.

Cable data transfer

Also new to beta 3 suggests that users can transfer data between two devices via a direct, wired connection when setting up a new device or restoring it from a backup, as verified by developer Guilherme Rambo.

In addition to the icon of two iPhones connected by a cable, an excerpt from the iOS 13 code suggests this possible type of pairing: "Keep your other iPhone connected to this iPhone and plugged in until the transfer is complete."

Right now we can notice two problems: first, there is not (yet) a Lightning to Lightning cable that can connect one iPhone to another; Secondly, the iPhone also doesn't have two Lightning inputs, so the only possibility to transfer files via a cable and keep it recharged would be to position it over a wireless charger (Qi standard) option available only for iPhones 8/8 Plus and higher.

Another possibility for devices in the new line of iPhones to replace the Lightning input with a USB-C port. Apple already offers Lightning to USB-C cables that make it possible to connect iPhones to new Macs.

These are just suggestions for this possible new feature, as Rambo tried to perform the initial setup process while running iOS 13 beta 3 and no new backup options appeared. So Apple may be tweaking it, either to make it available with the current line of iPhones or just for the next devices.

Active window indication in Split view

Federico Viticci, from the MacStories, noticed a slight change in iPadOS 13: now the system indicates which window in Split view is active at that time.

subtle, but iPadOS 13 beta 3 shows which app from Split view is actively receiving text input.

Note the tablet-shaped indicator on top. This has been a problem since the Split view was released on iOS 9.

The change is very simple and it does not take a clinical eye to realize that when switching between windows, the top bar of the screen gains emphasis when a particular window becomes active. As recalled by Viticci, this was a problem that existed practically since the implementation of the Split viewon iOS 9.

Apps panel in Shortcuts

Viticci also shared another news of iOS 13, this time related to the Shortcuts app. You can now view a new “Apps” category in the main application pane, which shows a grid of all apps that support the shortcuts installed.

Much, much better category of “Apps” in iOS 13 beta 3 Shortcuts which should have been a collection of all actions for all apps all the time.

Customizable mouse cursor

When iOS / iPadOS 13 was announced and found to support mouse, many criticized the way Apple added this option through AssistiveTouch. So there were two ways for the cursor indicator: large and giant.

Now Ma has added the option to set the size of the cursor and can make it very small on the screen. In addition, you can choose the color for the indicator and how long it will be displayed, as disclosed by developer Steve Troughton-Smith.

Encouraging Apple is improving mouse support on the iPad. Maybe by next year we got real support.

Photo Sharing

Photo sharing has also been improved on iOS / iPadOS 13, focusing on the privacy of the images you have taken. Currently, on iOS 12, when sharing a photo with someone else by AirDrop, all metadata for that image (including where it was taken) is sent with it, which can be shared and viewed by others.

With that in mind, Apple has added a simple option, but one that should be set up every time you want to share an image without disclosing where it was taken from, as highlighted by Cult of Mac.

When sharing a photo on iOS / iPadOS 13, a new “Options” menu appears at the top of the window; By selecting it, you can see even more sharing preferences, including the ability to remove the location of an image.

You can also define the method for sharing that image: either as an attached file or as an iCloud link. There is also another setting to share it with the maximum quality and all adjustments (issues) made, but sent photo location information together.

Safari's “Switch to Tab”

Talking about Safari, from iOS / iPadOS 13, the Apple browser will display when you access a page that is already open in another tab. It may seem like a useless function, but if you, like me, also open multiple sites on a daily basis at a time, the new option will certainly help to make the situation not even more cathartic.

The way the option looks very simple: When you start typing a URL in the address bar, Safari will display just below the typing field the "Switch to Tab" option, which will direct you exactly to that tab where the site is already open. .

Switch to Tab in Safari 13

This is not only a reminder for forgotten people (myself included), but also a new way to search for open tabs in addition to the existing tabs overview option.

Automate actions

In iOS 13, the Shortcuts app has reached a new level by allowing the automation of certain actions. This way, it "allows" users to replace native system actions with others you use more, a clever new feature discovered by developer James Tyler.

@automatorsfm Trying to “replace” native apps with automations in iOS 13 public beta (version) Even at this stage, @halidecamera can be started almost instantly from the lock screen. 😁

More than native actions, the option allows you to “swap” standard iOS functions; For example, tapping the Mail app to open another email client, such as Spark. Another much more useful replacement may include the camera shortcut on the iPhone X and later lock screen to launch another application instead of Apple's native option.

This is not exactly an appropriate replacement, but a very interesting trick that was previously impossible on iOS. More than the above examples, you can do anything with these shortcuts, even define apps that will open based on your location / time. Cool, isn't it?

Noise cancellation

Control Center has also gained a small twist, more precisely on the system volume controller. When the device is connected to a noise canceling headset, this option appears in the expanded volume menu (long-pressing the volume indicator).

In addition, the Sade app settings (Health) include more information on the headphones audio levels.

Full Screenshots

Apple has expanded Safari 13's full screen capture feature to even more apps from its mobile operating system. In the Notes app (Notes) and in Mail, for example, if you capture the screen, there is an option to save a PDF with any annotation or message, even if the end of it is not showing on the screen.

In Mail, the feature is even smarter because it focuses only on the message, ignoring all other not so important information from the window.

Other news

In addition to all of the above, iOS / iPadOS 13 is packed with other small changes, including:

  • House (Home): alert from cameras not compatible with Secure Recording, which sends the footage to iCloud, and re-transitions when selecting a device.
  • Apple Arcade: new images and teaser service disclosure.
  • Settings: “Subscriptions” button (ICloud Settings) back Apple ID main screen.
  • Keyboard: redesigned action buttons.
  • Mail: the "Archive" button is now purple.
  • Contacts: Emergency numbers are now featured in the app.
  • Search (Find My): New tab "I", for a better view of the location of your devices.
  • Voice recorder: Media recorded on Apple Watch will be uploaded to iCloud.
  • Apple card: New privacy screen during initial setup.
  • Print Screen: New option of “opacity” when editing a screenshot.
  • Memoji: The stickers have received some improvements in clothing and facial features.
  • Airdrop: When uploading files to any of your devices, the gadget name no longer appears.
  • Health: New charts to display highlighted metrics such as steps, calories burned, exercises, etc.
  • Files (Files): New icon and waveform representing the selected audio file.

What's new with macOS Catalina 10.15

Apple's desktop operating system has gained a new screensaver called Drift.

New screensaver (with color options) in (macOS) Catalina beta 3.

In it we see species of particles if momentum similar to a wave and according to the 9to5MacIt is the screensaver processed by the GPU right there (this is not a recorded video or something), and you can also configure various theme and color options.

WatchOS 6 news

A few weeks ago we reported that it would be possible to delete some native Apple Watch apps with watchOS 6. In fact, it was not long before Apple added the new beta option.

To delete apps on Apple Watch, make sure you're in grid view and hold down an app's icon, just like on iPhone / iPad. Applications that can be deleted will display an “X” next to them.

Delete native apps in watchOS 6

Not all native applications can be deleted, however; In the current beta, the Camera, Noise, Timer, Stopwatch, Alarms, Breath, Walkie Talkie, Cycle Tracking, ECG, Remote and Radio apps are all apps that can be deleted and downloaded again from the Watch App Store. Others like Activity, Messages, Music, News and Podcasts cannot be deleted but this may change until the final release of watchOS 6.

What's New with tvOS 13

Apple TV's new operating system has gained a new animation in opening apps, as noted by Rambo:

I like this new app launching animation on tvOS 13 beta 3.

The animation seems to be a bit "choking" yet, so Apple will certainly make that effect more fluid in future updates.

Of course, when it comes to beta, all you can do is remove any of the above or even greater enhancements to newly introduced features. What do you think is the best news about Ma's systems?
