IOS 13 beta users can resize app icons on home screen

IOS 13 beta users can resize app icons on home screen”

Apple released today the fifth beta of its upcoming iOS 13, iPadOS 13, and tvOS 13 operating systems to registered developers.

Apple had just released the fifth beta of iOS 13 to developers, which brings a slew of additions and refinements to both iOS 13 and iPadOS features.

Now we have another video from Zollotech which gives us a look at some of the new features that have been released in the new beta.

There's a lot of stuff coming in iOS 13 - and we do mean a lot - but most of it has already made its appearance in the first few betas. It's about time for Apple to make it an official Apple iOS feature so that users won't have to jailbreak their iPhones anymore.

Anyone fearless enough to install onto their iPhone or iPad pre-release versions of Apple's next operating systems can grab the latest betas.

One of these ways is the departure from the traditional monolithic home screen. The iPad always had a slightly different home screen layout - for one thing, for many years it was the only device that could go into landscape mode at the home screen - but it's still largely been a collection of evenly-spaced static icons.

Significant updates to iOS and the first stand-alone version of iPadOS were announced in early June, so the beta process has been going on for almost two months.

Previously, iPhone users who wanted this level of customization needed to jailbreak their devices. Apple is not known to have included any new features in this release.

iPadOS now allows users to resize app icons on the home screen. It's unclear right now, however, whether users will get retroactive credit here, but we certainly hope so.

The Beta also introduces a redesigned share sheet with sections for Favorite Shortcuts, the share actions for the current app, and Others.
