One of the best things about installing an iOS update is finding all the features Apple has not talked about yet. Hidden functions are often among the most useful aspects of updates, and the release ofand is no different. There is now not only a (huzzah!), But there is and you can even . Last month, we looked at iOS 13 and iPadOS and found a handful of tools that Apple did not talk about in WWDC (19459014) (19459005).
Here are 12 of the best new hidden features we've found so far, ranging from better battery charging and dual-SIM support in iMessage to using a mouse to control your iPhone or iPad.
We will continue to search and update this post as the beta program progresses. If you want to have fun early,on your iPhone. If you have installed this is possible.
Optimized Battery Charging
If you routinely charge your iPhone battery ($ 1,000 at Best Buy) and leave it there for a long time, it may cause damage over time. A new option in iOS 13 is designed to help extend the life of your battery by knowing your charging habits and preventing the battery from becoming 100% charged immediately.
If you're usually going to sleep while sleeping overnight, your iPhone's battery will get the best it can from charging. At 80% for the majority of the night, the last 20% of charging will stop just before the alarm sounds.
To use the new features, go to Settings > Battery > Battery Condition and activate it.
The iMessage search is actually working now.
Finding earlier messages in the iMessage app has always been terrible. It just did not work. That has changed. You can now search for a single word or phrase and the results are displayed almost immediately.
That's pretty cool. To do this, open the Messages app, swipe down to display the search box and type. Neat, right?
Search your iPhone with your voice.
Wherever you find a search bar in Apple's own apps, you'll see a microphone on the right. Tap the new icon to type your search by voice instead of typing.
Apps like Settings, Email, Messages, and Today View are just a few examples of where to find the new voice search option.
Share photos with or without location information
You can now remove location information from a photo if you share it directly from the photo app. With the new option, you can geotag the photo and see where it was taken. However, if you share it through social media, emails, or messages, you can remove this information and keep all location information secret.
Select a photo (or photos) that you want to share in the photo app, then tap Options at the top of the screen and uncheck under the Section Include .
New volume meter
Another overdue feature Apple iOS users have asked for is the volume meter. Do you know which pop-up window is on the screen when you adjust the volume when watching YouTube or Netflix?
The indicator in iOS 13 is much smaller and slides in from the side of your screen. If you adjust the volume, it is reduced to a small line and hides as soon as you have set the correct volume. Thank you, Apple.
iMessage and FaceTime Receive Dual SIM Support
Business and international travelers will appreciate the support of iMessage and FaceTime for the second number when two SIM cards are used.
Apple added with the launch of the iPhone XS, the iPhone XS Max ($ 1,100 on Amazon) and the iPhone XR ($ 618 on Amazon) Dual Added SIM support. The feature is convenient for those who do not want to carry separate personal and business phones, or for those who are often traveling abroad and need a data plan that is cheaper than roaming charges.
Prior to iOS 13, users could only use one phone number for iMessage and FaceTime.
Deleting Apps from the Upgrade Screen
Managing Old Apps That You Have Installed on Your iPhone or iPad ($ 249 at Walmart) is never a priority, or at least not for me. I know I've watched the App Store update an app. I know that I will never start this app again. Since the app on my home screen is not easy to find, I do not have to find and uninstall it.
After installing iOS 13 or iPadOS, the next time you see an app that you no longer need in the updates, swipe left in the list, and then tap Delete.
Announcing Messages with Siri Limited to Contacts of Their Choice
If you have AirPods ($ 145 on Amazon) or the recently launched Powerbeats Pro Earphones you will notice Siri can now read you incoming messages without you having to do anything. You can even reply to a message by only speaking after the message has been read – that's really cool.
If you are using one of the pair of earbuds for the first time with an iOS 13 or iPadOS device, you will be asked if you would like to do so. Turn on Announce Messages with Siri.
To customize how the feature works, open the Settings app and go to notifications and then to announce messages with Siri . There you can choose whether you want notifications from all persons, your contacts, the last time or just your favorites.
Use a mouse to control your iPhone or iPad.
True, you can use a mouse or trackpad to control your phone or tablet. The operation of a mouse with your iPad takes some getting used to – there is no typical mouse pointer. Instead, there is a cursor that more or less mimics your finger.
You can assign shortcuts to specific tasks in the new settings menu, such as: B. return to the home screen. Plug a mouse into your iPhone or iPad and go to Settings > Accessibility > Touch > pointing devices to customize how it works ,
Safari has a download manager.
You can now download files using Safari on an iPhone and iPad. The Download Manager icon appears only if you have an active (or recently active) download. Your download will automatically be saved in a download folder in your iCloud Drive account, which you can access in the file app.

Long Screenshots of Websites
If you've ever had to take multiple screenshots of a web page to capture the text of an article, you may be pleased that the iOS 13 screenshot tool has a new twist. Open Safari, take a screenshot of any website and immediately tap thumbnail preview. Above the screenshot are two options: Screen and Full Page .
If you select Full Page the entire displayed Web page will be converted to a PDF file that you can crop, annotate, and save in the File App.
