Ios 13 beta review iphone 7 năm 2024

Apple's is still making a lot of changes to the iOS beta, and there are a few notable ones in the release of the third beta on Tuesday afternoon. Here are all the changes we've found thus far.

Users should know that beta three of iOS 13 doesn't support the iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus. Support will be returning in future betas.

Home app

Inside of the Home app, users are greeted with a welcome screen that makes clear that current cameras don't yet support iCloud Secure Recording, followed by a second card to update a user's Apple TV or HomePod (when available).

We also see a slightly tweaked animation when opening accessories. What's more, is that grouped accessories — such as the Eve Degree — that has multiple sensors in one accessory, have new icons. Instead of being an icon of one of the sensors, the new grouped accessory has a rounded square with circles inside that represent the number of sensors the accessory supports.

For example, the Fibaro Flood Sensor monitors both temperature and liquid. In beta 2, it showed as a water icon. Now it is a rounded square with two small circles inside. When opened, it shows both sensors and the appropriate icons.

Notes and Reminders

Notes has a new welcome screen that highlights the major new features coming to the app such as gallery view, new checklist options, and shared folders.

Reminders on the other hand can now hide or show completed items on a per-list basis. Prior, it would show or hide across all lists rather than an individual list preference.

Other tweaks

In the latest beta, there is a more built out Apple Arcade tab in the App Store that highlights the upcoming subscription service. On iPad in Split View, the pill icons on the top now highlight the active tab including which one is receiving text input.

Health insights in iOS 13 beta 3

The Health app has new graphs to display highlighted metrics such as steps, calories burned, workouts, etc. The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max have a new toggle in settings to allow "FaceTime Attention Correction" which makes your eyes looking to camera appear more accurate on the other end.

iOS 13 Memoji stickers in beta 2 (left) and beta 3 (right)

For users that use an external mouse, inside of settings the cursor size can now be adjusted more incrementally. Memoji stickers have been slightly modified including a lighter shirt and more open eyes on certain ones.

When AirDropping files to one of your own devices the device name no longer appears.

Emergency contacts in the Contacts app have a new red asterisk next to their name to signify their importance and find them from the list view.

The Find My app has a new "Me" tab. When swiping to archive messages in Mail the background is now purple. Lastly, full-page screenshots now work outside of Safari as well.

Anything else?

These are all the changes we've found so far but the list is obviously non-exhaustive. If you've found any other changes, reach out on Twitter @Andrew_OSU.

Apple is now getting ready to recruit your help to stomp out the bugs in iOS 13. But be careful you don't sacrifice your iPhone or the data on it for the benefit of others.

The iOS 13 public beta is expected to land imminently. If you are interested in getting access to this, then head over to the iOS 13 beta sign-up page here.

But first, do you have a device that's compatible with iOS 13? Here's a complete list of compatible iPhones:

  • iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max
  • iPhone XR
  • iPhone X
  • iPhone 8 and 8 Plus
  • iPhone 7 and 7 Plus
  • iPhone 6S and 6S Plus
  • iPhone SE
  • iPod touch 7th-generation

I wouldn't recommend using your daily driver iPhone because it's likely you are going to run into problems, and you could run into a show-stopping problem such as an app that refuses to work, or something more horrible like data loss at the worst possible moment.

At the end of the day, it's your iPhone and you can do what you want, but don't say you've not been warned!

Note: If you don't have an old device that can run the iOS 13 beta, the cheapest device you can pick up to do that would be the new 7th-generation iPod touch. Alternatively, you might be able to pick up a pre-owned iPhone.

Next up, you need a data backup.

  • Apple opens public beta program for iPadOS 13
  • Mac users can now test the iTunes-free MacOS Catalina

To protect your data you should create a local backup using iTunes. Yes, I know that's old-school, but this is the way Apple recommends. You need this because if you have a backup created using the iOS 13 beta, you won't be able to use this to recover your iPhone if you roll back to iOS 12.

Keep this in mind as any changes you make to your iPhone while using iOS 13 beta can't be rolled back to iOS 12 if you decide to downgrade.

There will likely be several updates to iOS 13 public beta coming down the pike over the coming weeks, so you might want to wait for the dust to settle and for any big bugs to be squashed before making the leap, especially if you rely on your iPhone.

If you don't like dealing with bugs but still want to take iOS 13 public beta for a test drive, holding back for a few days might be the wise thing to do. If you like to live on the edge, smash that update button as soon as Apple the beta available.
