Apple is cooking up big software changes at this year's WWDC

Dark mode coming to iOS and iPad apps running on macOS.

Come on. Even Windows Phone had Dark Mode since its release. Android and iOS seem bad when they introduce DM.

Make support for Bluetooth mice and change Safari to desktop mode as a default for all iPads. Otherwise the powerful iPad Pro 2018 generation is for nothing.

Anonymous, 07 May 2019Yo, same boat here. I've used Android for 3 years, windows phone... moreActually, NO. You got it all wrong. Android's freedom is not about freedom to STEAL copyrighted material. Only sour graping, disparaging Apple fanatics deprecate and belittle Android and its users like that.

Google's Android is primarily about individuality, customization and ease of use. The flexibility and freedom it offers are within the bounds of what is legal, legitimate and right. Otherwise, Google would have been fined to death and sued to bankruptcy by artists, huge media companies and the US government like what happened to Napster in the early 2000’s.

Android provides just enough copy protection controls and checks and balances that discourage piracy--- that DELICATE balance between protecting business copyrights and interests, while at the same time, not inconveniencing, stifling, choking and suffocating the user's mobile experience and the users' own rights to digital media ownership.

Apple likes to justify the excessive controls, the suffocating iOS experience and the overpricing of apps and subscriptions as 'essential' for a 'premium' smartphone experience and to protect developers rights, when the truth is, they do it primarily to maximize their own profit (rather than to cater to developers' interests). No wonder Spotify and many other developers are suing Apple for the latter's excessive app store commissions and anti-competitive app store practices:

Big software changes. Wow! What does that mean?
If it will be like Android in terms of ease of customization, ease of file management and file transfer, then its big!
Otherwise, Apple's iPhone ship will continue to sink.

GIF, 07 May 2019I've used both, that's why I'm asking you! Widgets on main screen? Yo, same boat here. I've used Android for 3 years, windows phones for 2 years, blackberry, symbian phones, and now, for the past year, an iPhone 7.

All the "freedom" people talk about in android is just to allow them to install unsigned apps, cheats, mods, etc., watch pirated movies, copy pirated music, use pirated software, etc.

So it's all down to allowing them to steal.

It plays all file types and u don't need to convert at all.

I also use another free app called Web cast to stream all the latest episodes of game of thrones on my iPhone and then you can cast it to a smart tv if u wish to.

I also use another free app called Offline player.
It allows me to download videos from Internet to my device also straight from youtube.

Nrlastest, 07 May 2019Other 2000$ iphone...better buy huawei mate x...No. I rather save up to buy iPad / iPad Pro now. iOS 13 sees the beginning of the merger of iOS and MacOS..

2019 Mouse support. (Saving 25%)
2020 5G support. (Saving 50%)
2021 MacOS apps on iOS. (Saving 75%)

2022 100% - Buy iPad Pro to play Left 4 dead..

Dark mode is nice, however:
1) Blackberry /Meego/ Jolla style multitasking
2) localize the f€&@?! system to more languages. You have billions in bank, so why some languages have no siri and some even no spellchecker. When Nokia was the king, she supported much more languages properly.
3) Buy license for Blackberry 10 keyboard.
