Apple released new developer betas for iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 yesterday and included a few notable new enhancements in the release. Watch our hands-on video as we take a look at some of the more noteworthy new iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 beta 5 changes and features.
Of all of the changes included in this latest developer beta, the new Home screen ‘App Icon Size’ setting for iPadOS seem to be the most noteworthy. This new setting allows users to switch between a view that displays larger icons with fewer icons on screen, or the traditional view of smaller icons with more on screen at once.
The new iPadOS Home screen icon view also influences how the Today View widgets are displayed. When choosing the ‘Bigger’ icon setting, the Today View performs like it does in portrait mode, requiring the user to swipe it into view in order to see it. I personally think I prefer to have more icons on screen at once with the permanent Today View on the side, but it’s nice that Apple is giving users options.
