Everyone has a Facebook Messenger 'Dark Mode' toggle option

The only way to enable dark mode in Messenger was to send a crescent moon emoji in any chat, an Easter Egg activation available on both Android and iOS platforms.

In addition to that, the report also suggests that iOS 13 may come with features like new multiwindow support for apps for iPad.

Each window will also be able to contain sheets that are initially attached to a portion of the screen, but can be detached with a drag gesture, becoming a card that can be moved around freely, similar to what an open-source project called "PanelKit" could do.

The clunky iOS undo function, which until now has involved shaking the device, may be usurped by a gesture.

Apple will also improve the multitasking experience on the iPad with iOS 13.

Ecuador spread lies about WikiLeaks founder - Julian Assange's lawyer
Assange's relationship with his hosts collapsed after Ecuador accused him of leaking information about Moreno's personal life. Ecuador's Moreno ended Assange's protected status after more than 6½ years and opened the way for his arrest.

IPad users will also be treated to a new undo gesture; now, iOS users have to physically shake their device to undo, but with iOS 13, iPad users will be able to perform a three-finger tap on the keyboard area, after which sliding left and right will allow users to undo and redo actions. The Mail app meanwhile could add a read later option for messages, as well as upgraded filters that funnel emails into searchable categories including purchases, travel and "not important".

Safari on iOS 13 for iPad will automatically ask for the desktop version of a site instead of the mobile version as well, including YouTube and others.

Developers would be able to use a different status bar style, including light or dark, for each side of an in-app split view.

iOS 13 will reportedly feature a new volume HUD to replace the current design which obstructs half of the screen's view. iPads are also expected to receive a new standard undo gesture, as an alternative to the shake-to-undo. Likewise, users would also be able to reset their position by double-clicking the divider.

With the big reveal of iOS 13 thought to be mere weeks away, leaks and rumors now abound. Furthermore, the "Hey Siri" rejection for noises such as laughter will be improved, and the new iOS version would get support for keyboards and dictation, and expanded in-app printing controls.
