Although iOS 12 beta is not available yet for the public, a recent leak revealed a few details about its successor. According to this leak, iOS 13 "Yukon" will come with an updated Files app, a home screen redesign, tabs in apps like in macOS, as well as other iPad-focused features.

At this moment, the latest iOS release is version 11.3.1, which was introduced on April 24. Only 4 days ago, Apple also released the 11.4 Beta 3 preview build. For now, there is no iOS 12 build available for the public, but we already bumped into some rumors concerning its successor.

According to Mark Gurman, "iOS 13 “Yukon” will have a big iPad-focused feature upgrade as well, including an updated Files app. some other things in the works are tabs in apps like in MacOS, same app side by side, Apple Pencil stuff. The home screen redesign is iPad focused."

In addition to the above, Gurman also confirmed that iPhone users will get a SpringBoard redesign as well. An improved Notes app is also expected to be included in iOS 13 and, if everything goes smoothly, the next-next-gen major iOS update will arrive in 2019. 

Until iOS 13 arrives, we should first get ready for iOS 12. This release should be previewed next month at WWDC and is expected to include a long list of bug fixes and performance improvements, as well as a few new features, such as a new home screen and CarPlay UI. Obviously, it should be released later this year, most likely in September — if we take into account the launch dates of the previous iOS versions.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
