On August 12, 2020, the recent version of iOS 13, iOS 13.6.1 has been released to the public. It is mainly a bug fix update. The current version has solved some issues that were bothering the users for a long time. Let’s see the fixing areas-
The volume button that used to intrude whenever you increased or decreased the volume levels. Now, it is transformed into a slider that you will be able to control i.e. push back or front as and when you change the volume levels. The same goes for the mode controls that help you to switch your new iPhone 13 from ring to silent, etc. can be scrolled up and down as you please.
The music app in the new iPhone 13 has been revamped and made into a pro app by introducing the lyrics section. When you click on lyrics it will redirect you to the lyrics section and which has an amazing colorful background from where you can see the lyrics on the screen and follow the song that is playing. There is an option for up next which will tell you which song will play next, however, it is not as good as Spotify.
The 3D touch has refined and restructured. You can now drag the apps anywhere on the new iPhone 13 which previously was not possible. Even though Apple is thinking about excluding this option it has still improved this function in older devices. However, the haptic touch has been introduced in all the devices for better performance. There is a 3D touch in the controls section, which will allow you to 3D touch the controls such as Bluetooth, wifi, etc and access it without changing redirecting you elsewhere.
The icons are smaller, sharper, and bolder compared to the older versions. The icons have been redefined and made better for the user interface, apps like contacts, reminder, clock, etc have seen this change, hence goodbye boring icons! There is a new feature that allows you to select a dark mode that can be accessed from the controls itself, turning your new iPhone 13 blackish and will also affect the background and the wallpaper turning them black as well. The introduction of new wallpapers is awaited with this integration.
The performance of the app has become faster and the required storage has always been reduced. With the new update, the new iOS 3 has become 30% faster and the storage space is reduced by 50% i.e your new iPhone 13 will have more storage and speed inbuilt. Thinking about the battery life the new iOS 13 has introduced optimized battery charging. This is an extraordinary feature, this allows you to charge your new iPhone 13 without thinking about overcharging it. It automatically stops charging leaving 20% charge space for when you get up it fills the battery completely. This not only helps in saving power as well as the battery will last longer.

Now, you can control your new iPhone 13 by using different finger controls and make the edits you want. When you use three fingers and drag the screen backward it will undo the process you went through and if you move your fingers forward it will redo the action.
For copying a text you will have to pinch the screen and release elsewhere to paste it. To cut a text you will have to pinch the screen simultaneously while the pasting controls remain the same.
