This story is part of WWDC 2022, CNET's complete coverage from and about Apple's annual developers conference.

Apple took the wraps off its latest mobile operating system, iOS 13, on Monday at its annual WWDC conference in San Jose, California. In addition to a refreshed design, iOS 13 features a Dark Mode option for the interface, a refreshed Photos app, and more customization options for Memoji. iOS gets revamped every year and launches when its newest phones hit the market.
