I'm hoping the swipe keyboard is good enough that I can ditch third party keyboards.

I've avoided all of the Betas for 13... so I can't wait to try it out.

Great OP, but I thought it could use with some iPad focus. I forgot what the features were other than "multi-tasking."

i'm kinda-sorta hoping this'll finally fix my ipad pro's touch responsiveness issues buuuuuut i'm probably being too optimistic.
I think I'm having a similar issue on my iPad Pro. Sometimes it doesn't register my taps on websites when I try click on a link. Thought it was just my hardware slowly malfunctioning.

I’ve been using the beta and having the dark mode set to activate at sundown in your local time is just wonderful. I hope more apps support it, some still blind me late at night.

Biggest quality of life change for me is having a proper scroll bar at the side of web pages and documents. No more swipeswipeswipeswipe to get to where you want.

Oh shit I comple
Dang, I could swear someone said the new iOS usually released after the event. Oh well, still lopking forward to the stream.
The final GM developer version is usually out after the show, but I think it's usually released to the public the Tuesday or Wednesday before the new iPhone is out, which is probably next week.

Yeah, I've been using dark mode on my XS Max since Beta 2 and it's a godsend. I especially love that you can use reader mode in Safari to read any website article in complete and beautiful darkness.

Ah, gotcha, so that's what they were talking about. Oh well, I guess I'll wait.

Any reason/advantage in using the new Apple swipe over the Google Keyboard app I've had for a while?

I wonder if AirPod sharing is exclusive to AirPods or will work with my BeatsX. I mean they’re technically still Apple products, right?

I can confirm to you that the swipe keyboard is indeed wonderful to use (been using it on my old phone since developer beta before getting a replacement)

Public Betas 1-4 were REALLY fucking rough this year, but it has been pretty good on 5+. Now the latest beta is rather solid, though I think some 3D Touch / Cursor adjustment differences are going to rub some people the wrong way though - I seem to accidentally be holding links down all over the place on the latest 13.1 beta.

Once again, another well made OT! Thanks! I will be coming back after the Apple Event to find out more about iOS 13, but just based on my casual dealings with the iOS 13 Betas on my iPad, iOS 13 still seems kinda rough around the edges...

Dark Mode though, is nicely implemented...
