Apple is set to unveil its latest software updates at its 2019 Worldwide Developer's Conference, and there have been plenty of hints as to what that might mean for the iPhone and the iPad. Last year's iOS update was designed around improving the general performance of iOS, something that is expected to continue this year. With iOS 13, however, the spotlight returns to adding new features to Apple's mobile operating system.

Here's what we know thus far.

New features:

Google - Announcement - I/O - Mode - Android

Following Google's announcement at I/O that it will be bringing a dark mode to Android Q, iOS users will be pleased to know that Apple plans to bring its own dark mode to iOS with this latest update. According to Bloomberg the feature can be turned on via the Control Center, the quick access menu found by swiping up on iPhones with a home button and swiping down from the upper right corner on iPhones with Face ID.

In addition to the new color option, Bloomberg also says Apple might add a new swipe keyboard where you can compose texts by dragging your finger across keys, similar to options from the likes of Google's Gboard or the popular SwiftKey. Another new feature for iPad users will be the ability to use the tablet as a secondary display for your Mac, something apps like Duet Display have already offered.

Feature - Pro - Users - Mouse - Support

One other new feature that will surely be welcomed by iPad Pro users: mouse support. According to Federico Viticci, editor of MacStories and host of the Connected podcast, iOS 13 will bring support for the traditional cursor in at least some capacity. Long-time developer Steve Troughton-Smith backed up the report in a tweet.
