What's New in iOS 13 Beta 7

Apple today released the seventh beta of iOS 13 to developers, bringing new bug fixes and refining ‌iOS 13‌ and iPadOS features introduced in previous betas.

Now that we're up to the seventh beta, changes and tweaks are getting much more minor, but there are still a few new things worth noting.

- Folders - Folder backgrounds are once again gray, with changes made in the previous beta reverted.

- Dark Mode - The ‌Dark Mode‌ Control Center widget wording has been tweaked. Instead of saying Light Appearance or Dark Appearance, it now says Light Mode or ‌Dark Mode‌.


- Deleting Attachments in Messages - You can once again delete photo and other attachments from Messages. In a conversation, tap on the "i" and long press on a photo, link, or document to bring up a menu to delete it.


- Blocked Senders in Mail - There are new options to determine what to do with messages from blocked senders. You can move them to the trash or mark as blocked and leave them in the inbox (the default option).


- Silence Unknown Callers - When toggling on Silence Unknown Callers, there's new text in the Phone app that lets you know incoming calls will continue to ring from people in your contacts, recent outgoing calls, and Siri Suggestions.


- All Photos View - When viewing "All ‌Photos‌" in the main ‌Photos‌ tab in ‌iOS 13‌, ‌Photos‌ are displayed in a grid three across instead of the smaller thumbnails that were available before by default.


- Find My - Notify When Found is now working in the ‌Find My‌ app in this beta. There's also a new "Help a Friend" option in the Me tab that opens up iCloud.com so a friend can locate a lost device.


- Do Not Disturb - Do Not Disturb settings now sync properly between iPhone and Apple Watch.

Seriously, Apple, let us FaceID-protect Hidden Photos!

Don't be stupid!

Also, it's almost 2020, and Mail app still doesn't sync iCloud read status from macOS to iOS. What the hell!! iOS-to-macOS syncs just fine, but not macOS-to-iOS. Get your **** together!

What would this be for, to prevent someone that stole your phone from viewing the photos?

To prevent someone who you show a photo to by handing your phone to them from swiping around too far and seeing your eggplant emoji pics.

Question though from the article: When viewing "All Photos" in the main Photos tab in iOS 13, Photosare displayed in a grid three across instead of the smaller thumbnails that were available before by default.

In this latest beta can you still just pinch two fingers to easily change the size of the thumbnails?

Question: Does dark mode work on a schedule or via some automatic mode, where during the day when the sun is out, it is in light mode and at evening hours it is in the dark mode? Sorry, not on the betas myself to find this out.

You can have it always on, always off, turn on and off based on sunrise and sunset, or set a custom schedule.
