"When you set up a new device, iOS 13 presents enhanced options if it detects that you may speak more than one language. It offers to add relevant languages to your keyboard, dictation languages, and preferred languages," says Apple on its website.

For data conscious users, Apple has launched video downloads optimisation. With this feature video streaming platforms such as HotStar and Netflix can optimise the time of day to download your video. Apple says the feature will help these platforms to avoid congested networks and peak cellular data prices.

Apple has already started rolling out developer beta of iOS 13 and the first public beta will be available later in July. The stable version is scheduled to roll out later this year.
