iOS 13 has one feature I like

You can adjust the type size on Safari. It really helps on the forum.
I don’t need it much on my phone, but it is great for the iPad mini.
Now I don’t have to use that hack that I installed.

my favorite feature is the phone setting that sends any number not in your contacts directly to voicemail. it's been much more peaceful telemarketing wise since i flipped the switch.

I really like it, too.

I haven't seen a comment by s-t about it. I seem to remember him having a complaint about iOS Safari lacking that feature.

If only Costco would incorporate that into their app. It's neigh impossible for me to read the small product descriptions without putting on dedicated reading glasses (I do need a glasses update) and it's no better on an iPad. How do they manage that.

I thought about this but for me it will through the baby out with the bathwater.

Is there a visual notification option that you received the call? I can understand not wanting to be disturbed by a Taptic or tone alert from a potential spam call.

Sending it straight to voicemail without any notification means missing calls from those who's number I may not know. This means checking my voicemail for missed calls and possibly not responding in a timely manner.

I already hate routinely checking the Junk folder to retrieve items that shouldn't have been sent there.

I like that you can adjust it just a little, or a lot, and not just the freaking huge size that I see people use on their text messages.

yes. there is a call notification banner alert. at this point in the modern age, i don't answer ANY call from a number i do not recognize. haven't for a couple of years now. if it's a call i need to respond to i can call them back. most of them are telemarketers, especially from medicare providers this time of year, for which i quickly scan the voicemail transcript and immediately delete. saves me so much time.

Not sure if everything is due to OS 13, or if some of these things are functions of a more modern phone. I upgraded to an 11 Pro from a 6 (technically a 5s since I downgraded to that for several months after the 6 failed), but some of the little things are suddenly SO much better!

1Password integration is what it always should have been. Previously, it was sandboxed, so I had to do a lot of shuffling and copying and pasting between apps if I needed to log in to an account from scratch. Frankly, it was a bag of hurt.

Now, I can just hit the "Passwords" button, it jumps over to 1Password, logs in instantaneously with Face ID (SOOOOOOO much better than Touch which I was always fond of), and then after maybe one more click to select the proper account heading, it propagates the fields with the login and passord info. Even easier and faster than on the Mac the because of the Face ID thing. Seems like it happens "automagically."

Same with logging into an account on Apple TV. If you use your phone as an input device, you can use the same "Passwords" button to fill the fields on you Apple TV. This eliminates the biggest bag of hurt of them all.

Still diving into the other improvements, but using Siri to play Spotify in the car is a big one. But by far my favorite is using Siri to enter an address in Waze. I know—it always should have been that way. But to me, it's a real boon to be able to say "Siri, ask Waze for directions to "blankety blank" and have it cue everything up. Makes you wonder why we every put up with the old way.

Right there with you.

I just didn't want to miss a call that would matter.

A banner notification is works.

Thank you, gl.

What am I missing? When on the forum on my S8 and I want to make text bigger, I use the finger pinch/spread thing...

On iOS, zooming doesn't have the text scroll. The new text enlarge function in Safari does.

Yes, there is a visual notification on the locked screen that you missed the call. There is no vibration to go with that, as I recall (nor does it ring). The call gets recorded as a "Recent" and the phone icon gets a red badge.

Hope this helps.
