Just hours ahead of Apple taking the stage at WWDC 2019, Ben Geskin has leaked a screenshot of what he claims is the new Reminders app coming to iOS 13, complete with the update's widely rumored Dark Mode.


The image actually appears to be a photo of the screenshot, superimposed over an iPhone XS frame, as evidenced by its blurriness.

The redesigned Reminders app has a much cleaner design than the current version, with categories for Today, Scheduled, All, and Flagged, as we saw in a leaked screenshot of the new Reminders app on iPad last week. Dark Mode appears to be a true-black interface, which would of course benefit battery life.

Reminders is one of many Apple apps expected to be updated in iOS 13, alongside Messages, Mail, Maps, Books, and Health, according to Bloomberg's Mark Gurman. He has also reported that Apple will merge its Find My iPhone and Find My Friends apps into one app for tracking the location of devices and friends.

MacRumors will have live coverage of the WWDC keynote on our website and on Twitter starting at 10 a.m. Pacific Time. Apple will also be providing a live stream of the keynote on its website and at select Apple retail stores around the world. Follow along throughout the day for up-to-the-minute updates.

I’m not convinced it’s a leak, rather an inverted colour image or even just pure speculation at what it’s likely like.
We will find out in about 6 hours I guess

I can see this being a huge disappointment of a release.
Dark mode doesn't exactly fix the aging look and lackluster features of what could be done with the technology there.
13 years later and there is still no way to mass move icons other than one by one.
Screens and screens of jumbled icons that become just unused because they're lost and the folders just don't work well enough. Why on earth you're restricted to 9 icons in a folder when the phone is capable of displaying 24 icons.

Same design/black. Just isn't enough.

Updated photo app with Googles Night Sight equivalent. That’s all I’m asking for. It’s purely software and no reason Apple can’t add it unless their software engineers are as uninnovative and incompetent as they are starting to appear...

iOS 13 is shaping up to be the sleepiest yet.

A visual overhaul of the home screen, widgets on the home screen(even if some don't like it, give the options to those who do), a better camera app that's not so basic, customizable music equalizer... just to name a couple.
The camera’s resolution settings should be built in the camera app

For mass moving icon, try clicking another icon when holding one.

As a heavy user of the Reminders app, I hope this update fixes the prevalent bugs with recurring reminders where edits sometimes impact a random reminder rather than the one you clicked on.

As for dark mode, the main benefit for me is it hides the horrendous notch.
