iPadOS and iOS 13 developer beta four are now available, two weeks after developer beta three was released.
An iOS 13 password bug was discovered in the latest betas that give unauthenticated access to Website & App Passwords in Settings.
As detailed by iDeviceHelp on YouTube, you can access all of the saved usernames and passwords in Settings by repeatedly tapping the “Website & App Passwords” menu and avoiding the Face ID or Touch ID prompt. After several tries, iOS 13 will show all of your passwords and logins, even if you never successfully authenticated with Face ID or Touch ID.
I haven’t been able to replicate the issue, but I’ll keep trying to see.
Apple is testing biometric login for iCloud.com. If you’re a beta tester for iOS 13, iPadOS, or macOS Catalina, you can go to beta.icloud.com and login with Face ID/Touch ID.

iOS 13 brings multiple camera input, meaning apps can capture photos and videos from multiple microphones and cameras on one device.
Sarah Herrlinger, Apple’s Global Accessibility chief, talks about new accessibility features in iOS 13 and macOS Catalina.
Accessibility, as it always does, plays a significant role in not only the conference itself — the sessions, labs and get-togethers all are mainstays of the week — but also in the software Apple shows off. Of particular interest this year is Apple’s Voice Control feature, available for macOS Catalina and iOS 13 devices, which allows users to control their Macs and iPhones using only the sound of their voices.
The new features, such as Voice Control, are amazing.
iOS 13 locks down private notes in Contacts, preventing apps from accessing this content like they could in the past.
iOS 13 ‘Find My’ combines Find My Friends and Find My iPhone. Apple says it uses Bluetooth signals from Apple devices even if they’re offline. And the encryption scheme it uses means that third party attackers can’t track Apple devices, and Apple can’t track them either.
In a background phone call with WIRED following that keynote, Apple broke down that privacy element, explaining how its “encrypted and anonymous” system avoids leaking your location data willy nilly, even as your devices broadcast a Bluetooth signal explicitly designed to let you track your device. The solution to that paradox, it turns out, is a trick that requires you to own at least two Apple devices. Each one emits a constantly changing key that nearby Apple devices use to encrypt and upload your geolocation data, such that only the other Apple device you own possesses the key to decrypt those locations.

Apple introduced Dark Mode in iOS 13 during Monday’s WWDC keynote event. My kneejerk reaction was that it looks much better and more useful than Dark Mode in macOS Mojave, but we have yet to test it. Below is the atmospheric video the company used to announce it. It includes some screenshot at the end, accompanied by the airy grove “Magic” by Mr. Jukes.
Apple unveiled enhancements to Memoji for iOS 13 during Monday’s WWDC keynote address, including a variety of customizations designed to help you make your Memoji look more like you. What was interesting to me was the “Makeup Tutorial” starring Patrick Starrr and Desi Perkins. These two younger folks are beauty influencers. What that means is that they make a bunch of beauty and makeup videos and have more followers than you can shake a stick at. What they are not are tech executives. Or coders. Or traditional celebrities. Or even project managers in Apple’s Memoji team. So, this represents Apple stepping outside the box, and it also means Apple is thinking differently about how to reach young people. Tapping social media influencers to spread the word about new customization features in Memoji means that Apple is targeting millennials and Generation Z. What it also means is that if you think this video is stupid or a bad idea, you aren’t the target market, and that’s OK. As it is, these new customization features are yet another step in Apple’s inexorable push in making iMessage a social media platform unto itself.
Like iOS 12, iOS 13 supports a good range of devices. Here is the iOS 13 device support list.
