This year, we work top to bottom the system making everything faster that you do the most things like unlocking with face ID now 30% faster We've changed the way that were packaging apps on the app store when this rolls out in the fall with iOS 13 you'll see that your downloads are now 50% smaller and updates 60% smaller, but what's really incredible is the effect it has on app launch speed It's up to twice as fast in iOS 13 We are bringing dark mode to iOS Look at that the gorgeous dark wallpaper notifications look great Let's take a look at our widget. Look just awesome Let's take a look at some apps. We'll start with news Check it out with a gorgeous dark appearance So nice and your calendar your daily events have never looked so awesome with this really beautiful palette and notes Look at this refined texture. It's really fantastic Let's take a trip into messages. So you see how your images your emoji they all look just fantastic, and of course the keyboard an extra refined new dark appearance and some new tricks because now when you type you can swipe ~5G~ Just like that now safari has new options to quickly change text sizing and as per website preferences Male gets desktop-class text formatting controls Including support for rich fonts and notes gets this beautiful new gallery view Support for shared folders and much more but what we really went deep is with reminders. We've completely Reinvented the app rewriting it from the ground up to make it more intelligent intuitive and powerful and easier than ever to create reminders so for instance just type what you want and reminders will understand when and where to notify you or you can use the new quick type bar just tap and enter things like location or even Attachments like photos with tasks you can now associate to dues with a top-level reminder now smart lists, they help you keep track of your most important items and if you tagged a person in a reminder, Well next time you're in a messages conversation, you'll automatically get a notification Letting them know that now is time to talk. It's really handy. So happy to show you what's new and Apple maps Alright first let's take a look at that new map As Craig said we've been driving and flying all across the United States collecting land and aerial data to add significant new detail to the map So now roads and beaches parks and buildings Look great We've also added a couple of very useful new features to our recently designed launch screen Like favorites where I can add the places I go every day for quick and easy access Now I can just tap and go and with collections these are this is where I can organize all of my favorites or I can make lists of favorites to share with friends or I Can finally organize that next big trip? With look around I get a gorgeous high-definition 3d view it's an awesome way to explore But this is my favorite part turn your phone and hold on tight Smoothly move down the street. Yep We believe privacy is a fundamental human right and we engineer it into everything we do and this year We're doing even more I want to focus on three big areas starting with location now for the first time you can share your location to an app just Once and then require it to ask you again next time it wants it and If you do choose to grant an app the ability to continually monitor your location in the background Will give you reports so you'll know what they are up to Now some apps try to work around these protections by scanning for Bluetooth or Wi-Fi Signals to infer your location when we're shutting the door on that abuse as well Next I want to turn to login We've all seen buttons like this asking us to use a social account login to get a more personalized experience with an app now This can be convenient, but it also can come at the cost of your privacy your personal information Sometimes get shared behind the scenes and these logins can be used to track you So we wanted to solve this and many developers do too and so now we have the solution It's called sign in with Sign in with Apple is the fast easy way to sign in without all the tracking a Simple API allows the developer to put sign in with Apple button right in their app You just tap it and you're authenticated with face ID on your device Logged in with a new account without revealing any new personal information Some apps may want your name and maybe even an email to send you information when you're outside the app Now we do allow them to request this information But check this out you can choose to share your actual email address or You can choose to hide it and when you do we'll create a unique random address that forwards to your real address Unfortunately most home cameras today send people's video up to the cloud so it can be analyzed to tell the difference between maybe a leaf blowing in the wind and someone at your door But unfortunately, this risks your privacy. We have a new way. It's called home kit secure video Now yes : kits secure video in that case the video was analyzed in your home on your resident iPad home pod or Apple TV and Then it's encrypted and securely sent to iCloud where no one not even Apple can see it Now of course You'll be alerted if there's any activity and you'll be able to review the recordings Now storage for 10 days of clips will be included in your existing iCloud accounts and it won't count against your storage We've all received messages like this. Like who is this guy? Well, wouldn't it be better if you could see something like this or maybe even? this well now you can because with iowa's 13 you and the people you message with will be able to share your name and Your photo and even use momochi or an emoji to create a photo of yourself It's called emoji stickers Now instead of expressing yourself like this with emoji in your conversations you can now do it like this We automatically create a sticker pack for you for each of your momochi now We're also extending portrait lighting so you can adjust the intensity of the lighting effect Just like you could in a lighting studio by moving the lights closer or further away from your subject So when you increase the intensity of the light, it's like virtually moving the light closer. This has the effect of smoothing skin Brightening eyes and facial features you can pull it back For a subtle more refined look and we adapt this effect uniquely to each style of portrait lighting The next I want to turn to photo editing, we have a brand new experiences that you control every element of your photo You can see at a glance all your settings and with just a tap and a drag you can make adjustments It applies across all of our existing effects and many more that are new to iOS 13 We've also given you more control over how you can view all your photos You can simply pinch to zoom out and see a bunch of photos or you can zoom in see more detail It's really fast and fluid Now as you can see, I take a ton of photos of my kids trying to capture that perfect moment Often times my best shots get lost in this sea of images That's what days is for and it's tapped down here at the bottom You can see days is absolutely beautiful the clutter. The similar photos is gone. I can just scroll and enjoy now shortcuts enable you to use your apps through Siri and in the shortcuts app You can create your own personalized Multi-step shortcut now in iOS 13 the app is built right in and it is more powerful than ever It's now the one place you access all of your shortcuts including ones You've added a Siri and we make it easier to get started use with your first multi-step shortcut using a new feature called Suggested automations, which take your habits and personalize it for to a template like heading home or going to the gym
