Take a look at some of the key new features below. For the complete list check out Apple’s website
Beautiful new look
A new Dark Mode option gives iOS and apps a beautiful dark color scheme. Perfect for low-light environments, Dark Mode is easier on your eyes and won’t disturb people around you.
Turn on manually
Tap the new button in Control Center to quickly turn Dark Mode on and off, such as when you enter a dark room or theater.
Have Dark Mode turn on and off at a certain time or based on sunrise and sunset, which is great when you’re outside at night or using your iPhone before you go to bed.
New wallpapers optimized for Dark Mode automatically change as you switch between light and dark.
Dark Mode is beautifully integrated throughout iOS, from built-in apps and settings to system-level views.
Works with your favorite apps
An API lets third‑party developers implement Dark Mode in their apps.
Privacy and Security
App location permissions
Control the location data that you pass to apps with new, fine-grained controls. You can choose to grant an app access to your location once or anytime you use it.
App location transparency
Receive notifications when an app is using your location in the background, so you can decide whether to update your permission.
Wi-Fi and Bluetooth location privacy enhancements
API changes and new controls help prevent apps from accessing your location without your consent while you’re using Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
Location controls for shared photos
Now you can control whether you share your location when you share a photo.
Adjust Portrait Lighting intensity
Virtually adjust the position and intensity of your studio lighting. Increase the intensity of each Portrait Lighting effect — moving the light closer to your subject — to smooth skin, sharpen eyes, and brighten facial features. Or decrease the intensity of the light — moving it away from your subject — for a subtle, refined look.2
A new Portrait Lighting effect, High-Key Light Mono, creates a beautiful, classic look with a monochromatic subject on a white background.2
Updates to Portrait Segmentation API
The Portrait Segmentation API now supports skin, hair, and teeth segmentation, so developers can create new effects for Portrait mode photos.2
