iOS 13 Beta 5 is out! – What’s New?

July 31, 2019 100 By Bernardo Ryan


hi everyone Aaron here for ZolloTech and
today Apple released iOS 13 developer beta 5 this came in at five hundred and
sixty four point seven megabytes on my iPhone XS Max and it will vary
depending on which device you have as far as its size is concerned now let’s
take a look at the build number you can see the build number is 17 a five five
four seven D and this particular build does not have a ton of changes in it but
Apple has said that there are bug fixes that they’ve resolved and there’s also
known issues so Apple has set in the notes there are 45 known issues so
there’s still some bugs to fix before with the first beta there were more than
double that so they’ve come quite a long way and they have until September to fix
this now they’ve also resolved 13 issues so they’ve resolved things that have to
do with not only bugs but also apps crashing such as such as whatsapp and
some banking apps as well so that’s great those things should be working for
you and also if you’re waiting for the public beta it’ll either be out later
today or more likely the next day or depending on when you’re watching it
could already be out so be sure to take a look for that now let’s talk about
what’s new now on my left I have iOS 13 a beta 4 and on my right I have beta 5
and I wanted to show you a couple little changes so if we go into shortcuts here
you’ll see down at the bottom they’ve actually removed this automation tab
that they had on the previous beta this would allow you to set up an NFC tag to
sort of program what you want to do just by tapping your phone on an NFC tag I
really hope they bring this back maybe it’s not ready it didn’t work 100% all
of the time so I think that’s why they removed it but right now it’s just not
there so hopefully they bring that back now there’s a few little changes here
and there one of the changes is to the volume HUD now when you move volume up
and down on the left here there’s actually some haptic feedback now when
you get all the way to the bottom or the top you can feel the phone kind of shake
a little bit so that’s something that’s new not a huge change but it’s there
now also under the activity app let’s take a look at that if we go under
activity there are some new move goals so under the move goals here down at the
bottom there is now twelve hundred and fifty Oh
up to 2,000 and then there’s perfect month so before this we only had up to a
thousand now we have up to 2,000 so that’s something that’s new also they’ve
made some changes to the share sheep and we’re going to cover iPad OS at the end
since there are a couple little changes as well
now the share sheet itself is a little bit different not hugely different but
let’s take a look now for on my website here I’ll do the same over here on the
iPhone XR you’ll see on the left is the old share sheet on the right is the
new one and you’ll see the first thing is on the left the font is blue but on
the new version for beta 5 the fun is now black the background is a little bit
more translucent and also they’ve now grouped the different sharing options
into categories so so you’ll see here we have copy at the top down at the bottom
there specific to Safari and then we have some other things we can also edit
them at the bottom however we’d like but you’ll see it’s grouped for Safari so
that’s new and that’s really nice I think the share sheet looks a little bit
better now now the final thing that’s just tweaked slightly is the LTE signal
they’ve changed some of the actual sizes here so you’ll see the size of the
signal maybe you can see it a little bit better here it matches the size of
everything else so it’s just increased in size to be consistent across the top
with the battery and the Wi-Fi signal so nothing major but a little bit of a
change now one other thing they’ve changed before we take a look at iPad OS
has to do with the app called home so if we go into home you’ll see I have a
bunch of different lights here you can control those but if we go to edit here
at the top then tap the little button here then I scroll down we now have new
wallpaper for home so we’ll hit choose from existing and you can see we have
some new wallpaper at the top nothing phenomenal but they will carry across to
all of your different devices so if I set that to blue it takes a moment it
updates in the background then it sets it on all of the different devices now
speaking of other devices iPad OS has a couple little changes one of those
should make people very happy and that has to do with the home screen grid
layout so if we go into settings we’ll wait for it to load and this is an iPad
air 2 the oldest supported device so we’ll go into settings here and then
under display and brightness if we scroll all the way down to the
bottom you’ll see there’s now app icon size so we can make them bigger if we
don’t like them filled in as much we’ll wait for it to do its thing here it’s
kind of slow on iPad air 2 right now but you’ll see the icons are much bigger now
if I go back I can make them smaller we wait for it to resize and now they’re
smaller again so you have that option depending on how you want to set this up
and you’ll see it’s six by five and if we go back it’s four by five now instead
of six by five so we have less icons but they are larger so however you like it
you can arrange it also for the mouse pointer they’ve made a little change so
if we go into our accessibility settings here I’ll wait for it to change and like
I said it’s pretty slow on iPad air 2 maybe it’s just because I updated it but
I’m not sure let’s go to we’ll go to touch Hut assistive touch and then down
here there’s pointer devices and pointer devices is nothing new we can now use a
mouse but if we go to pointer style we now have some different size options for
the mouse so there’s a lot of other sizes smaller sizes as well and color so
you can change the pointer and things like that so if you want to change the
actual mouse pointer style you can do that and it’s size and that is really it
as far as all the major little changes that we have in this update now I would
expect a lot of bug fixes in fact with this particular build number we’re on D
that means we’re getting closer to a which is usually the final release and
it may take a little while to see that but right now it seems like there’s a
lot of little bugs that they probably fixed and tweaked right now and it’s
hard to say right off the bat because actually the last beta kind of slowed
down over time but hopefully it fixes the issues on iPad this is the older
iPad so it’s going to take some time to know that for sure now I do have two
other devices here I have an iPhone se and it does seem to be working fine on
the SE so you’ll see swiping is good if I go into settings settings seems to be
nice and fast no issues there and then also this is an iPhone 8 the
I actually had repaired you remember that video and it seems to be working
fine as well no issues whatsoever although it is fairly new and it seems
to be all right however battery life on the previous beta was okay not great I
would expect it to get better over time we’ll wait for it here over the last 10
days you’ll see it’s not amazing as far as 3 hours and 19 minutes of screen on
time and 56 minutes of screen off time that’s not so great
compared to the previous beta before that but it is a beta so I would expect
it to get better over time I really don’t expect to have great battery life
on betas however this one hopefully it’s getting a little bit better as we get
closer to the final release which is in September
now performance seems to be ok let’s run a geek bench on all of these just to
give you a baseline to see how it’s going overall for those of you that like
to watch that geek bench benchmark has completed and I’ll just let you take a
look at these and I’ll go over the XS Max but on the far left we have the iPad
air 2 then the iPhone se and then the iPhone 8 so let’s take a look at the XS
Max here and I received a 4836 for single core and 11240 v from multi-core
if we take a look at the history it’s actually pretty good
it’s a little worse as far as the multi-core by just a little bit and a
little bit better on the single core so that means basically it’s going to be
good overall there’s not a whole lot going on here so that’s really it for
iOS 13 beta 5 of course if I find anything else I’ll let you know on a
