- What changes would you like Apple to make to iOS and iPadOS?
It has been some time since the official release of iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 and we have already talked at length about the new features of both operating systems. So we believe that the time has come to highlight those changes that have gone the most unnoticed.
Today we are going to talk about a series of changes and improvements that Apple has implemented visually in the user interface of iPadOS 13. Over the last few years we have already done the same with the improvements of iOS 10, with 11 details of iOS 11 and with 12 changes of iOS 12. Now it’s time for iPadOS 13.
Be careful, we are not talking about functions, but about those small details that make a difference and keep both iOS and iPadOS the best mobile operating systems on the market.
And it is that Apple dedicates a lot of effort to perfect the design, not only of its hardware products, but also of its software. And this is a very good proof of it. Shall we start?

13 visual changes to the iPadOS 13 design
1. Microphone icon in Messages
Apple’s native messaging app has received a few enhancements with iOS 13 and iPadOS 13, such as the new Memojis and Animojis Stickers panel. But one of those little details that has caught our attention the most is that new button to send audio messages, no longer has the symbol of a microphone, but rather looks like the waves of an audio note. Cool!
2. Playback on Lock Screen
Apple has greatly improved the design of the multimedia content playback widget from the Lock Screen. This functionality was already available in previous versions of the operating system, but now it has a much more spectacular design and some additional elements such as the AirPlay button or the virtual remote button for Apple TV. You no longer have to drop your popcorn again to control your favorite Netflix series.
3. Widgets on the Home Screen
This is, without a doubt, one of the most notable novelties at the visual level of iPadOS 13. From now on, iPad users will have the possibility of add your widgets on the side on the screen next to your applications. A very aesthetic but also very functional change.
As we announced a few months ago, the Home application has received some small changes aimed at improving the organization of home automation accessories compatible with HomeKit. In addition, the elements of the panels of each button also have an absolutely cool new design.
The 3D Touch and Haptic Touch menus were already available for a few years on iOS, specifically on the iPhone. But this it is the first time they arrive on iPadOS, introducing all kinds of shortcuts to applications and an option to reorganize and delete apps.
6. Volume indicator
We couldn’t create a list of new iPadOS software design elements without mentioning the volume indicator. Now it’s a lot less intrusive and is located at the top of the screen.
7. The renewed Photos app
Another of the visual improvements of iPadOS that we liked the most is the organization of the photos in the Photos application. The interface looks wonderful!
8. Dark mode
The introduction of the dark mode of iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 brings with it a myriad of small details that make the panels, buttons and other elements of the operating system look spectacular.
9. Redesign of the Search app
Manzana unified the Find My iPhone and Find My Friends services in a single application, its redesign has a very attractive and very modern visual aesthetic… and the app icon too!
10. The screen brightness in the Control Center
The iPadOS 13 Control Center has incorporated a few new features such as adding dark mode button. On the other hand, it also has small improvements such as the user interface of the screen brightness button.
11. The new remote for Apple TV
Apple has completely changed the design of its virtual remote for the Apple TV, and we have to say that it affects its effectiveness very positively. It’s brutal! Of course, it is a bit more comfortable to use it on an iPhone with iOS 13 … In fact, on many occasions you will feel like you are holding the remote of your Apple TV.
12. Visual improvements in Reminders
Another of the apps that has also received a great redesign in its user interface is Reminders. It is much more colorful, more modern and with a much more organized look.
Safari includes numerous changes with iOS 13 and iPadOS 13. Apple has added multitasking functions, a download manager and even a menu to change the size of the text, hide the toolbar, access the mobile version of a web page and much more . And as if that were not enough, the action button to share content has a much more modern style and minimalist.
