The brand new File Manager makes it easy for using USB drives and now has more features, unlike the old File Manager which was present in iOS 12. Apple has added a column view that makes it more easy to use any external servers.

The Dark Mode has finally arrived in all it’s iPhone and iPad devices. It can also be set on a schedule so you can use it when you want to. Many of the applications don’t have the native support for the dark mode but its a correct way forward for the OS.
