It can be overwhelming to keep up or know what new features are in the latest software. So, we’ve picked our top new features of iOS 13 for you to explore.

You can also use the Memoji as stickers on your iOS keyboard so you can send these to your friends and family.To access these stickers, simply click on the Memoji icon in the bar that features above the keyboard when you’re in a message.


Profile Features in iMessage 

And what’s even better, you can now share your name and Memoji with people. To set this up simply open up your Messages app and tap on the three dots in the top right corner. Then press ‘Edit Name and Photo’, from here you can choose the first and second name you wish to share as well as choosing your profile image. 

You can select a variety of profile pictures including the Memoji or Animoji feature. From here you can create your Memoji if you haven’t already or simply give yourself a makeover by hitting the plus sign (+). From here you can select the facial expression you want your Memoji to have and the colour of the background. 


Dark Mode 

iOS 13 has seen the introduction of a new system wide Dark Mode option which changes the entire look of the system from light to dark. You have the choice to have Dark Mode come on at certain scheduled times or permanently. 

To launch this feature, click on the Settings app and tap Display & Brightness. On this screen you’ll see the appearance tab at the top with the option of Light or Dark, simply click Dark and congratulations - you’ve joined the dark side!



Photo Editing Tools 

With iOS 13, you can now make the most of your photos with a powerful interface. You really are spoilt for choice when it comes to editing - a few new tools introduced are:

  • Exposure - Exposure allows you to adjust the amount of light in your photo
  • Brilliance - Makes overall image bright and alters the contrast to make details sharper
  • Highlights - Lets you darken the duller areas and brighten the lighter areas 
  • Contrast - Allows you to add a variety of colours between lighter and darker

Great network. No problems at all. So much better than Tesco mobile


My experience has been far from negative and I’m very happy & impressed with how simple and good Asda Mobiles app, website & Call Centre is. Made one call to them and everything sorted, worked first time.


Switched to Asda Mobile after Virgin Mobile decided to scrap all Pay as You Go sims from January, 22. Surprisingly, the switch was smooth, brilliant customer service and coverage better than Virgin mobile.


I found the service excellent. I topped up straight away using my debit card on the website and my old number was ported as promised within 24 hours. The signal seems fine to where I live. Thanks!
