Hands on with the iPadOS 13 and iOS 13 developer betas

At its WWDC 2019 keynote this week, Apple announced iOS 13. But that's not all, because the firm said that the iPad has evolved so much that it should have its own OS. That's when it showed off iPadOS 13, which is really nothing more than a rebranded iOS.

Following the event, Apple released the first developer betas, which actually take more work to install than previous ones. You need to flash the image from a Mac that's already running macOS 10.15 Catalina. Naturally, we did just that, despite Apple's best attempts at warning us about how unstable it will be.

The biggest change that you'll see is dark theme, which is consistent across all of the first-party applications. Hopefully, more apps will support it once the update is generally available this fall. Another notable change is the home screen on iPadOS. You can now fit more icons on the screen, and you can bring your widgets over.

And of course, there's plenty more. Check out our hands on video below:
