Custom Fonts Inside Apps
With iOS 13, users will be able to install custom fonts on their iPhone and iPad. Apple App Store has a new section for fonts where the user will be able to find and install new fonts. They will be able to manage installed fonts in the Settings applications.

Users will also be able to select to turn on the dark mode in a custom schedule such as every sunset. Dark Mode in iOS 13 makes your content look more immersive. The idea behind the dark mode is to your content pop more.
All the native system apps will have Dark Mode support enabled by default; if you have an iOS application and you want to enable Dark Mode support for users of your application then, you can use Dark Mode API to enable Dark Mode support.
Sign-in with Apple
Apple also introduced a new privacy-focused feature named Sign in with Apple. This is an alternative to Login with Google accounts and Facebook accounts, which allow users to use their social accounts to quickly sign-in to other apps. Apple is differentiating the feature by making privacy the core of it.
With the new feature, users will be able to sign in with their Apple account without sharing their details with the app. In case the application needs email ID of the user, then users can generate randomised email addresses which will forward the email to the real email address of the user. Apple has also enabled Two-factor authentication for more security. As a developer, you will be able to allow users to authenticate their account via Touch ID or Face ID.
Application Shortcuts With Siri
Just like Android has voice shortcuts for Google Assistant, Apple has also introduced conversational voice shortcuts in iOS 13 by combining Siri and Shortcuts app. For example, if user says “Order food from Caviar”, Siri will bring up a list of restaurants with favorite dishes of the user.
All the shortcuts are located in the Shortcuts app rather n the Settings app. Shortcuts app will also provide users with Suggested Automation so that users can create personalised routines. Indeed, it is one of the smartest features among all the iOS 13 features.
Car Play Dashboard
Apple has overhauled Car Play in the latest version of iOS by introducing a new Dashboard for music, and maps. The new dashboard will allow users to see Maps and Music at the same time. A new Calendar application has also been made available. Siri in Car Play also supports third-party navigation and audio apps.
