Apple today released the sixth beta of iOS 13 to developers, introducing new bug fixes and adding and refining various iOS 13 and iPadOS features.

In the sixth beta, changes and updates are getting more minor than changes made in earlier betas, but beta 6 still has some notable additions that are worth highlighting.

- Dark Mode Control Center Toggle - There's a new Control Center toggle that lets you enable and disable Dark Mode with a tap.


- Folder Transparency - Apple has changed folder transparency in iOS 13 beta 6, making folder backgrounds better match the color of your background. Comparison image via the MR forums.


- Hide Link Previews - There's a new option when 3D Touching on a link on a webpage to Hide Link Previews, which disables link previews on a per site basis.


- Announce Messages - The Setting for allowing Siri to announce incoming text messages when connected to second-generation AirPods and some Beats headphones has been removed in iOS 13 beta 6.

- Three Finger Tap - You're now able to three finger tap anywhere in iOS to bring up undo, redo, cut, copy and paste icons, which may be a bug.


- Background Location Warnings - Apple warns iOS 13 users when apps are using their location in the background. In beta 6, the warning text has been tweaked slightly, and now reads "Do you want to continue to allow background location use?" instead of "Do you want to continue to allow this?"


- Bluetooth Permission Updates - When installing an and syncing a device over Bluetooth, Apple will warn that the app "may also use Bluetooth to know when you're nearby."


- Photos Splash Screen - There's now a splash screen highlighting the new features available in the Photos app in iOS 13.


- App Store Splash Screen - There's a new splash screen in the App Store app detailing Apple Arcade and the App Update changes in iOS 13.


- Analytics Privacy Policy - There's a new paragraph in Apple's analytics privacy policy: "If you agree to send Analytics information to Apple from multiple devices that use the same iCloud account, we may correlate some usage data about Apple apps across those devices by syncing using end-to-end encryption. We do this in a manner that does not identify you to Apple.

- Apple Pay Privacy Policy - Apple has slightly tweaked its Apple Pay privacy policy to mention location data collection for Apple Card: "Apple Pay Merchant Identification: Your iPhone will use your current location to help provide more accurate merchant names when you use your physical Apple Card."

- Location Privacy Policy - There's also a new addition to the location privacy policy: "System Customization: Your iPhone will customize system appearance, behaviors, and settings using your current location, for example by automatically enabling Smart Charging when you are at home. This customization data does not leave your device."

- Volume Tweaks - There are once again 16 volume increments instead of the 34 from the previous beta.

- LTE Icon - The LTE/4G icon is back to its regular size and is no longer larger to match the height of the LTE bars.

I've been having major issues on iPad Pro 11 and iPhone Xs with messages. Seems that its trying to sync or pull messages from icloud and it basically locks up. At some point it can't connect with message server. I can go to the messages app and it just hangs on verify. Requires me to restart phone. If i unplug from power its usually ok. I think thats because the sync/backup with icloud occurs when plugged in.

I posted a defect last week with no response. Seems to have started on the last beta and was hoping this would clean it up but same behavior...

Thank god for 16 volume increments!!

My button started acting up from pressing it too many times. I couldn't just hold the button down either because it would jump to the max instantaneously causing earache or temporary hearing loss.

What kind of boneheadedness is it to remove contrast on the folders? I bet it sure looked great on the developers monitor though.
Yah, that new folder appearance is horrible, and hard on the eyes!

So maybe the solution was to make the button progressively increase or decrease the volume as you held the button down, instead of reverting back to 16 levels?

I hated it.Glad they’ve changed it back.Hoping that they will get rid off the haptic scroll bar too.Absolutely hating that! I keep unintentionally activating it when scrolling.
Isn't the haptic feedback for scrolling controllable in settings?

it was announced as a feature so it's more than likely not going anywhere.

Is there a way to stop Safari URLs from opening an app? In iOS 12 if you long pressed on a URL you could launch a URL without it opening the app (if that app is on your device). I don’t see anything similar in iOS 13.

I've submitted this bug before, but my alarms can't be turned off when they pop up on the screen. Doesn't matter if I hit Stop or Snooze, they'll keep going off until I open my alarms list and click the radio button to kill each of them. That, though, then requires I remember to go back in and turn them back on at a later time.

For every person that will complain about the lack of contrast, there is another who will complain when the contrast is added again.
