13 small but cool new iOS features, from faster scrolling to permanent hotspot

We round up a few of those new iOS 13 features that remained somewhat hidden from the public eyes and ears during the WWDC presentation, yet they would spark joy of the level only Marie Kondo can to tidy iPhone and iPad users.

So in big part we are locking at things that have been available on Android for some time. I'm glad Apple is waking up.

Android has app download size limits like current iOS but iOS is 13 is removing the size limits While android will still be stuck with limits on downloading apps

I can download right now Asphalt 9 on mobile data on my Android phone. And it's a 1.7Gb download. Playstore only tells me that the app is too big and I should use Wifi but it I hit Proceed it will download the app.

No it does not. As far as I know, Google has never placed a lock on app sizes. Also most devs make the app smaller, wand when on wifi, the app downloads the needed content in the background, and I have download as much as 2GB of data for games like Asphalt and others. Sorry you're wrong on that one. Apps in the begging were never big. But I've download apps that were over 500MB many times when I first bought Android phones like around the time the S3 came out. Because at the time, all carriers had unlimited data. They didn't start capping data until video streaming because a thing and it started putting a strain on their networks. Don't ever try to lump Android into that restricted crap you love so much. We've never had such stupid restrictions...EVER!

You guys not gonna address the ridiculous $999 price for the monitor stand?

To be honest, that new iMac is destined to professionals of the graphics industry (photo, video, animation) and sound recording stuff, not for the average joe or jane. Cool and all the tech is, I'm not into that world, so I'm not interested to buy such equipment, maybe if I become a video editor or work at Hollywood/Natgeo or work at Warner Chappell. Otherwise it's a waste of money.

So what. How exectly does that justify charging $1000 for a metal stand? I've had a custom built VESA stand made for me that allows me to mount a TV from 40" up to 100" on the same stand and that whole stand which sits on the floor only cost me $200. THIS IS A CUSTOM stand, not a retail option that could be sold in the millions. No way you can justify $1000 for a stand. PERIOD. The new Mac Pro cost $5000 to start? First when you consider OS X does not do the things you do on something like a Silicon Graphics workstation, which also start at similar pricing, $5000 is extreme. Now don't get me wrong, the upgrade capability of the new mac pro is nice. But considering the issues Apple has always had with the mac pro, I'd be pissed like many trashcan mac users who paid all that money, only to have issue with heat and logic board failures which is not an issue with similar spec'd Windows machines. Even Microsoft charges way to much for their Surface studio products. And yes the pros who buy that, cost is not an issue; and it isn't meant for the retail market. But just because you slap "Pro" like Margues Brownlee said on a product, doesn't mean it's actually worth the extra cost they slap on it with the name.

Shut up and buy a custom stand vesa for this to then.

True, in any moment I've defended that $1k stand, that's a total ripoff. For the rest of what you said, well, I'm not into that world of design and stuff, and there has to be better Windows-based setups than Apple's. I'm trully worried about how the heat is going to dissipate, there's only 1 big fan pulling out all that heat...

Dell charges 50€ for a server accessory; anyone can get the same accessory - for a consumer product - for half of €; this products have a different market (even the display itself, it's €6k while a consumer display is less than 500€). I took a 250€ Samsung display and looked for an original stand - the price is 57€ (vat included) on ebay; Apple display:stand is 6:1, Samsung is 4.38:1.

It's expensive. Apple is greedy. Get over it.

I've noticed that. Is there a reason for that? Not the pro model, but the Air and Macbook, how come you don't cover those? In fact you don't cover PC's either. Is there a reason? To much changes?

It runs iOS, a mobile operating system, and some even have sim cards!

Do you mean iPadOS? Do you really claim iPad is a phone? What about iPod Touch? It's a phone too?

35. Vancetastic

It also runs a mobile OS. Wanna stick that foot farther in your mouth?

If you think that stand is expensive, you should see the bill I got for my Dell accessories... That stand is designed for a professional display that is usually mounted on a wall; it is not meant to be bought by the average Joe.

Keyboard needs numbers above them. And I despise Apples inertia scrolling still. Should be faster. I feel like i have to swipe on a treadmill when I use an apple phone vs android. Anyways, bravo. All this makes iOS much better.
