iOS 13.4 Beta Features & Changes!

by birtanpublished on March 23, 2021

you know what's going on guys Sam here welcome back to another video can you believe we're already looking at Iowa's thirteen point four developer beta one now if you're a public beta tester you should be getting this soon but right now it's only out for devs I didn't actually think we'd be seeing this so quickly because you know iOS thirteen point three point one was just released a week or two ago but we're already on thirteen point four meaning this is probably gonna come out for everybody in a couple of months the most exciting with this update is that there's

Actually more changes here than we thought there would be new features in the mail app boom emoji stickers there's some updated carplay stuff it's actually really cool I'm gonna go over all this and more so drop it like if you're excited hit subscribe for more and I'll take oh good the new features coming to your iPhone soon so I got to start off with a huge point of contention in iOS 13 everybody's favorite the mail app I don't know how Apple messed this one up so bad but there were so many issues along the way and I think it's finally gonna be fixed but also I said that

Before and Apple just hasn't coming through so thirteen point three is on the left here thirteen point four is on the right and you can see down below at the bottom there are some big changes instead of everything being hidden in this one menu right here that implies you can only reply because that's what the icon says it's now spread out once again so if you want to move it to a certain folder it's there if you want to flag it it's right there and there's some really nice colorful options here that Apple just didn't have these were not easy to use by any stretch of the

Imagination but now they're back they're accessible you don't have to tap in one menu just to move something and then scroll down it was really frustrating next up iCloud folder sharing is here in iOS 13 point for letting you share files with other people across the internet straight from your iCloud account this was the one confirm feature for the update and right here if we tap and hold and then try to share this you'll see how it works after you tapped on share just go ahead and tap on add people and you'll get this pop-up right here so you got the

Ability to either text or mail or send it to Twitter you know you could send it to your car as well or you could you know just share it and adjust the settings right here to somebody on your iCloud account so obviously texting or emailing the link a lot of people to have access to that file that's stored on iCloud drive for a long time apples had support for sharing individual files but now somewhere to Dropbox or Google Drive or Microsoft onedrive you can sort of share this or you use this service to share all your files in one folder rather than in

Visually which could be really frustrating to work with following that I'm just curious do you guys like fun do you like to use momochi characters because I'm gonna be honest I've used these like once and I think I think it was to my mom it's just a little joke or something I don't really touch these momochi characters I think they can be fun sometimes but I haven't exactly seen them take off all that much well if you are somebody who does enjoy fun Apple has added some new ones here this image is courtesy of Renae Ritchie over on

Twitter you've got somebody holding their hand to the side somebody really having a good time with like the party I always what you call those things it's a you know like a little blow whistle I don't know they were really fun in like grade school somebody being thankful hearts crossing like sort of the dual dab emoji right there shocked I really enjoy like the variety in these images like people really put time into developing these somebody using their MacBook of course that's that's where you guys are at from your 9 to 5 and a couple of others to show that you're

Probably annoyed with whoever you're talking with so these are also included in iOS 13.4 and again just go into your iMessage app and then tap down here you can see them in action so yeah look look at me look how much fun I'm having you guys with this up they could have that much fun too now speaking a bit more broad there's another really big update in iOS 13.4 that also relates to the Mac so Apple is introducing Universal purchases with iOS 13 point four and a new version of Xcode which is the software used to develop applications for iOS and Mac OS on the

New version when you buy an app on iOS it can also be bundled with a Mac app or vice versa you buy a new Mac application and you get the iOS companion app for the same price so this is pretty exciting for people like you and me who actually are buying apps because we won't have to pay twice if a developer decides to do that now obviously developers deserve to get paid so I don't know if every application will now become bundled when you buy something on iOS or on Mac but it's great to see that this is coming and I think it could really change the

Revenue model for a lot of developers but also keep customers really happy so you don't have to pay once for the same iOS app and the same Mac app which is a pretty big deal a bit different from iOS 13.4 but still sort of related is on watch OS 6.2 that's the new beta version of this out for developers there are now in app purchases on here so if you want to add on to apps on your wrist you can do that now that's a pretty big deal because you know it's a big part of revenue for developers on the iPhone and now that is coming to the Apple watch so let me know

Your thoughts about this down below do you have a desire for microtransactions now available on your wrist I'm a bit mixed here I see the application I know it could be cool sometimes but I feel like it might be a step too far in recent history carplay has been a feature that Apple has been putting a lot of time into it was overhauled in iOS 13 and even more changes are coming in thirteen point four there are new navigation options but more exciting is the ability to unlock your car using your iPhone using NFC or near field communication technology so essentially

You'll be able to just put your phone up to your car if your brand-new car that you buy supports NFC unlocking and use it as a key now this is something Tesla has achieved through bluetooth for a number of years now it's not a super new concept but it's cool to see that an apple as proprietary in car software adding the ability to use your phone as a key now the carplay documentation here also says you'll be able to share it with other family members so through the wallet app you can all have access to some car which is gonna probably solve the all-time you know eternal issue of

Who gets the car keys like who can drive with a new car for the update everybody has a key to the NFC car which is actually a really great idea if you have family sharing enabled there's a brand new tab inside of the TV app that somebody discovered over on Twitter I don't have families sharing enabled because you know it's just me out here but if you do you'll be able to find this new tab whenever you or another family member installs iOS 13.4 and checks into the library tab of the TV app and there was actually one more change discovered while editing so

Instead of the shortcuts app there is a new Shazam it shortcut so you can now integrate this into your workflows described itself is using the microphone to listen and identify nearby media and this one makes sense it feels like it should have been here before because Apple actually owned Shazam so like they do with most of their acquisitions now you can integrate it further into the Apple ecosystem performance-wise let's go ahead and see if there is any difference between saint processor and both phones but thirteen point three point one here and thirteen

Point four here alright and the results are in while the multi-core on thirteen point three point one was a bit higher the single core score was pretty much identical so I don't think there's really any performance change I think this is probably either a bit lower a because it's beta one and bugs and kinks in the background been worked out or be I'm gonna sometimes write after updating to a NOAA beta you get slower scores than when the software has been installed for a couple of days or a couple of weeks so overall noticing definite change no

Thousands in one direction or another I think it's gonna be about the same as before so let me know your thoughts and I was 13.4 down below in the comment section do you like the new features and changes are you gonna be installing it or are you waiting for the public release and did enjoy the video drop a like down below it does seriously help me out and hit subscribe so you stay up to date on the way to supplement am and I'll see all of you in my next video
