WWDC 2019 preview: iOS 13 wish list



WWDC, Apple's worldwide developer conference, is less than two weeks away. Over a dozen days, we will know the broad outlines of Apple's software in the next year. It's an exciting time, when you hope for the hope that the features you dream of will be fulfilled and make it a new release.

It doesn't always happen, but when it does, it's pretty good. Here's what I hope to see in iOS 13 when Apple reveals it on Monday, June 3.

Go the last mile with files

iOS started life as an operating system that denied the existence of files and avoided file management – Just a change from the file-oriented interface to the Mac. But it has been years since Apple broke the seal on files in IOS with the introduction of iCloud Drive and later Files.

But Apple didn't quite finish the job with file management on iOS. There is a bit more to do before they push the football over the finish line and declare victory.

File manager on iOS is too inconsistent. You can save and open files in different locations on the iCloud drive or on your local device, but the rules on when to store files and where to store them are not clear. The user cannot create folders arbitrarily, which is frustrating. The On My Device site is particularly confusing, so much so that even technically missing users do not understand that your iOS apps can store files on iPhone or iPad without syncing them with iCloud Drive. (An important feature if you are not an iCloud slot or a measurement or slow Internet connection.) You cannot create or open zip archives using the File app. With a little focus on the details, Apple can clean up this experience and make it much better than it is today.

Initially, it opens access to the files App to some types of devices that Apple has not supported so far. Since the iPad Pro comes with a USB-C port now, it's time that Apple allows USB storage devices, thumb drives, spin disks, your name to connect to iOS devices, and that content is displayed in files. Similarly, files should be supported for network file servers. I don't need to buy a third-party app to connect to my local SMB server. Even better, let me also add my external SFTP servers, so I can access every server I use that is not part of a shooting service like iCloud or Dropbox.

Get better with sound

Apple has made many advancements with AirPlay 2. Let's hope there is more to come.

As someone who does a lot of podcasting, I realize that my needs in relation to iOS sound are not common. However, if you look at how iOS handles audio input and output over a Mac, it's clear that iOS functionality is rudimentary at best. iOS should be able to support multiple input and output devices, and allow apps to access them simultaneously. (AirPlay 2 has actually developed the ball for production pretty much!)

Still, I should be able to run a voice recorder app while talking on Skype. I would like to be able to switch to video mode in the camera app on my iPhone without my music stopping. Picking an input device when several are attached – let's say the internal device microphone, a set of headphones and a dedicated USB microphone – shouldn't be a matter of luck, but a convenience.
