iOS 13 update, features list and everything you need to know

  iOS 13 update, features list and everything you need to know The iOS 13 update is now available for iPhone users, and it has already been updated to iOS 13.2 a month after release.In fact, Apple has released five iOS 13 updates starting with the iOS 13.1 update that was pushed out barely a week later. These have brought a number of crucial bug fixes and even more new features, culminating in the latest iOS 13.2, which introduced the Deep Fusion camera software upgrade for the iPhone 11 line.

You no longer need an Android phone if you want to keep your Google Maps activity (mostly) private. Google is rolling out Incognito Mode to iOS users as of today, giving you the same ability to search for and navigate to locations without leaving records behind on your account or Location History. Again, this won't affect Assistant queries or prevent outsiders from theoretically snooping on your Google Maps traffic -- this is mainly so that Google (and anyone with access to your phone) won't know what you've been looking for.

Android users are getting an additional privacy control of their own. There will soon be a bulk delete option for your Timeline so that you can quickly remove a group of places you've visited without venturing into Maps' settings and specifying date ranges. This could be particularly helpful if you've been looking for gifts and would rather not spoil the surprise when your partner borrows your phone. The feature will miss the holidays with its January rollout, but hey -- it'll be ready for next year.
