Among the updates is support for a mouse and a new home screen that allows you to pin apps to it like a desktop. You need only search "Apple lawsuit" here on TechSpot for evidence of that - the company has been hit with suits for everything from its defective "butterfly" keyboards to allegedly lying about the iPhone X's notch and screen size. That's in line with Apple's overall goal to improve performance on iOS 13.

In macOS 10.15 Catalina and iPadOS you are now able to use your iPad as a second display for your Mac. And while iOS has historically limited Apple's tablet, iPadOS stands to unlock its true potential.

The reminders app is also getting a makeover in iOS 13. For example, tablet view doesn't do some of our bigger reviews for products like the iPad mini (2019) and OnePlus 7 Pro justice; numerous full-width photos are cropped on tablets.

iOS 13 is set to be released to the public in Fall 2019. It adds new multitasking gestures to slide between multiple apps, and drag and drop apps side by side.

While some might feel some brand loyalty for iTunes, or a sense of nostalgia when recalling the days when the iTunes store was an incredible new way to instantly purchase music online, most people don't really care what you call the program where they watch and listen to stuff.

Apple also used its developer's conference to show off a new Mac Pro high-performance desktop computer to go on sale this fall. You can unzip and zip files.

Are you disappointed by the removal of iTunes?

"Users will have access to their entire music library, whether they downloaded the songs, purchased them or ripped them from a CD", reads a press release.

Developers scouring the first beta of iOS 13 have discovered a number of references to a new hardware product - referred to only as "Apple Tag" - nestled in the code of the first iOS 13 beta. Apple has put out a beta version of iPadOS, but at the moment, it's only available to registered developers. Other supported iPads include the iPad Air 2 and 3rd-generation iPad Air, the iPad mini 4 and 5th-generation mini, and the 5th-generation iPad and later.
