Twitter leaker Max Weinbach said recently that AirPower wireless charging mat and AirPods wireless charging case will be available in the coming months. He also mentioned some of the changes that is coming to the AirPods wireless charging case. Nevertheless, as Weinbach doesn't have any track record, we will take it with a grant of salt.

He said that the AirPods will be able to charge from 0% to 100% in a wireless charging case in just 15 minutes. In contrast, the AirPods that's available in a wired charging case that will get you up to 3 hours of battery life in 15 minutes. However,, due to the integration of the Qi coil, the wireless charging case will become thicker and heavier. AirPods 2 is a bit like Apple Pencil 2, with the smooth surface turns into a matte texture.

Finally, Max Weinbach also said that iOS 13 will not introduce the dark mode, instead, the dark mode will come in iOS 13.1, though I personally don't even see them not unveiling this major feature at this year's WWDC Keynote, it might be just getting the same treatment as Group FaceTime.

Apple to host its WWDC19 from June 3rd to June 7th at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California. On the annual Worldwide Developer Conference, Apple will unveil the iOS 13 software update, alongside watchOS 6, macOS 10.15, and tvOS 12. So what new changes could iOS 13 bring?

Well, according to an XDA developer, iOS 13 will finally do something about the Volume HUD. The developer named Max Weinbach, said in a tweet that in the upcoming iOS 13 update, Apple will ditch the existing volume heads-up display (HUD) icon, although he did not mention how it will be handled, the design supposed to be groundbreaking.

Currently, when the iPhone user sets the volume of the device via the volume button, a pop-up window with a large rounded rectangle appears in the center of the screen, which can obviously prompt the user to change the volume. However,. In some cases, such a pop-up window will affect the use of the device to a certain extent.

Now, Apple is finally going to fix this annoying Volume HUD icon, so how to make the prompts clear enough and no longer visually affect the user's experience is the problem that Apple needs to balance.

According to Bloomberg, Apple is planning to bring the triple-lens camera to the next-generation of iPhone XS Max, whereas the next-generation of iPhone XS and iPhone XR will be available in the dual-lens configuration. Max's third lens to offer a wider field of view, a wider zoom range, and able to capture more pixels.

The report says that some versions of the 2019 iPhone are being tested using the USB-C port, which may suggest that Apple plans to switch from the Lightning port to USB-C at some point. Apple also plans to upgrade the Face ID sensors, but expert the new iPhones will look similar to this year's models.

Furthermore, Bloomberg claims that iOS 13 will finally introduce the Dark Mode to enhance the visual experience of night use. Apple will also revamp the CarPlay in-vehicle system. Updates for the iPad is also said to in the work: Apple will introduce a new home screen layout for the iPad, the ability to tap through multiple pages of a single app, and improved file management system.

Apple is planning to expand the cross-platform apps initiative as well, making it suitable for developers to build apps that are compatible with both iOS and macOS systems. iOS 13 may also include the rumored Apple original content and Apple Magazine subscription service.

The iOS 12.2 beta 1 was released to the developers this week, which includes references that provide us with general ideas of Apple’s proposed product releases in early 2019. Last night, developer Steve Troughton-Smith insists that he discovered evidence of the next-generation of iPad mini, iPad, and iPod touch, and it pretty much just revealed all of the blueprints for the March event.

While in bed last night, I was contemplating why Apple choose to update their iPad mini and iPod products this year instead of last year or next year. Finally, I have concluded that maybe the old models won’t receive the iOS 13 updates. If that’s the case, then the iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus will not be able to update to iOS 13 as well, since they use the same processor (except iPhone 5s uses even older processor) as the iPad mini 4 and iPod touch 6. Here is why I think iOS 13 will stop supporting these devices:

Every time when Apple decides to update their iPad mini and iPod touch, it’s because the previous generation won’t get new updates anymore. For instance, iPod touch 6 was launched after iPod touch 5 no longer receive any updates. Another case is the iPad mini 4, which debuted when its predecessor stopped seeing new updates.

What do you think about it? Do you agree with me? Share your thoughts in the comment section down below!

Apple recently filed a new patent, which will help users to recognize a robo or scam call with a loud sound or vibration, this could means that Apple intends to add "spoofing calls filter" to the iPhone in the future, perhaps they may bring this feature in iOS 13 next year.

According to the patent document description, iPhone will automatically check the number in the huge database after receiving the call to confirm the identity of the caller. This feature would improve the accuracy by analyzing the information of the incoming call, including some device identifiers (Unique Device ID), determine if it's scam or robocall.
A mobile device receives an invitation to commence a media session. The invitation may be from a legitimate caller or from a spoofing caller. The mobile device checks parameters using templates to evaluate a consistency of the invitation with respect to a database in the mobile device If the result of the evaluation is that the message is spoofed or the likelihood that the message is spoofed is substantial, then a warning is provided to the called party,
We would expect Apple to bring this feature as early as next year, it may added along with other iOS 13 features like the Home screen redesign, dark mode, etc. Google, however, already introduced the spam filter feature called Screen Call feature for its new Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL, enable users to avoid robocalls and scam calls.
