I had a day out yesterday and it reminded my why you shouldn’t run iOS 13 on your main device just yet. At home it’s been ok but yesterday my faceid failed and didn’t allow me to enter a passcode and my iPhone XS was running really hot. I’ll be moving onto iOS 12 now until the public beta in a month. I’ve cancelled my developer account this year as I can’t justify paying £79 a year just to run a beta.
Another new discovery I thought I’d share. In Reminders you can left or right swipe on an item to action it.
In the today view
In a list
Is outdent even a real word 😀
I’m loving dark mode but writing white on a black background in notes is a little too much for me so I was glad to find that you can change the colour of a single notes background.
Tap the share sheet on the individual note and scroll down until you see ‘Use light background’.
I’m discovering more and more about Reminders in iOS 13 and wanted to start to focus on sharing it. First up is the ability to create sub tasks, something I enjoy to do if I need a little guide to follow.
First up tap the little ‘i’ next to the task name you’ve created.
Next tap on the ‘Subtasks’ section.
You can now enter your sub tasks. When you’re done tap details in the top left to go back.
You’ll notice reminders doesn’t keep the order they were created.
You can tap, hold and drag the sub tasks around to your liking.
One of the reasons I went back to the beta of iOS 13 was to cover and test the new reminders app. I’ve been waiting years for this refresh and loving the redesign. Thought I’d post my current setup. Keeping it pretty simple for now.
I’ll delve more into Reminders as I continue to use it as part of my daily life.
I’m expecting we’ll see Beta 2 of iOS 13 today around 6pm GMT. Maybe it’s wishful thinking but typically the second seed comes out two weeks after WWDC. I’ve got a load of Radars to test, especially in reminders. At the moment I’ve got the beta on my iPhone and iPad Pro and it’s causing me a few problems but it’s useable generally, still I’d really appreciate beta 2 as soon as possible.
There’s been lots of chatter about how iOS 13 beta 1 is buggy and from running it across my devices I’m taking it off and waiting. I’m not going to renew my Apple Developer account this year, I’m not developing an app so £99 seems like a waste of money just to test beta software. If you’re tempted I’d recommend waiting until the public beta as I’ve lost iCloud data this time around.
