On iPad, you may be able to run the same app in multiple windows. Apple will also be updating all its Marzipan iPad apps on macOS to support dark mode as well.

There will be a lot of iPad-specific changes in iOS 13, including the ability for apps to have multiple windows.

Safari on the iPad will automatically ask for a desktop version of a website when necessary, preventing a common scenario that sees iPhone versions of sites popping up on the tablet (hello, YouTube). To activate it, you'll use a three-finger tap on the keyboard area.

Facebook has announced that it is making its dark mode feature for Messenger available to all users today. To make users comfortable with the gesture, Apple will show a tutorial the first time they open the keyboard. This will lead to an overall better browsing experience.

The Mail app will organize messages into categories such as marketing, purchases, travel, and "not important", with all of these being searchable.

Generally, the iOS 13 update seems to be geared towards various productivity functions and is focusing on new gestures. This new gestures will be available in table and collection views which are used by a majority of apps displaying a huge amount of data.

Apple is finally improving the Volume HUD in iOS 13.

Facebook has been widely testing Messenger's Dark Mode for about a month now, and while the feature was available for some users, you couldn't enable it via the settings menu.

Other updates may include better font management, improved language support, an overhauled Reminders app, a new look for the volume user interface, more expansive printing controls in apps and perhaps better filters to avoid accidental "Hey Siri" activations (from things like laughing). And according to the report, here are the features that you can expect from the next-generation software.
