Developer Beta 5 of IPadOS 13 dropped today and includes a new feature worth mentioning. Apple has included a new setting that lets users determine the amount of icons displayed on the screen. While this is not an important addition, it is worth noting how long Apple left the iPad's home screen alone.
While iPadOS 13 has allowed users to put more icons on the screen by implementing a new multi-line grid layout and smaller icons, users now have the ability to customize how the grid appears on the screen. The "More" option lets you have 30 icons on a screen with a 5 down by 6 across the grid. The "larger" option displays 20 icons using a 4 down and 5 across the grid.
This feature was around in the good old days of jailbreak, but it's nice to see Apple add some visual customization options to their mobile OS over time. That said, it's possible that this is just an experiment on Apple's part. The fact that it appeared quite late in the beta process makes me wonder if it will stick around for release. Apple will occasionally try out new features in beta that end up being skipped or bumped into a later OS update. Only time will tell, but I hope this feature stays around.
This new icon grid alternates with a few other subtle new features of iPadOS 13 Beta 5. There are now multiple volume levels, up to 34, adding more granular control. Apple has also split the new sharing sheet into Favorites sections, the current app, and other actions, as well as adding the ability to add shortcuts to the favorites of the redesigned sharing sheet. It is also a new choice to try out the new dark mode from the original device setup after upgrading.
A solution to the new Beta 5 is the appearance of Open in New Tab for Safari.
 I was confused when I noticed that this feature was gone in Beta 4 and am glad to see it back so soon, since I use it all the time.
