This new OS brings new customization options, security upgrades, and more user-friendly features for a smoother, uninterrupted experience
ShenzhenAnd the October 23, 2022 /PRNewswire/ – vivo has officially launched the new Funtouch OS 13 for users in overseas markets. Based on the newly released Android 13 operating system, the upgraded operating system combines design-driven value from vivo with new and improved customization options, updated privacy and security features, and new control features for a smoother, uninterrupted experience. vivo not only strives to provide users with an easy experience, but also to empower them to express their creativity and individuality through their devices.
Add a touch of personalization to your screen
Funtouch OS 13 gives users more visual control over their home screen. With the monochrome icon feature, users can now change the color of their home screen icons to match their wallpapers, system, and app interfaces, truly unlocking their creativity and expression.
Furthermore, the new system allows users to customize colors on the system user interface and built-in applications, including notification panels, volume control, calculator and clock. It can take advantage of the color from the users’ favorite background and theme to select the appropriate color hue, and apply it to the application interface to transform the device with a more special look and feel.
More protection and security
The new app install feature helps keep sensitive data safe, providing users with greater peace of mind regarding their security and privacy. When someone else is using the device, the two-level pinning function keeps the selected app in view and prevents access to other apps on the device. This feature allows more flexibility, allowing the owner to set parameters and control what actions are allowed within the installed application when other people use the device.
This update also allows users to hide photos and videos as well as selectively choose different apps to access certain photos, thus preventing unwanted viewing on their devices and enhancing privacy protection further.
Improved controls and user-friendly features for greater convenience
To create a more streamlined experience for vivo users, Funtouch OS 13 also features an improved app management, iManager, which can particularly help in monitoring app usage time. If the CPU usage is too high, users can close this app with a single click. iManager can also prevent overheating by reducing the number of active apps and adjusting the CPU frequency based on the phone’s cooling feature.
In addition to weather updates, the dashboard also features an AQI card for health-conscious users who want to instantly check the latest information on air quality with a detailed PM2.5 index available.
With vivo’s popular and well-known mobile photography experience, new photo and video upgrades are to be expected. The professional viewfinder makes photography easier with a new mounting ring that helps mitigate the effects of shaky hands.
The new operating system has also improved the video editing process, allowing users to mute the video while editing stills and even make precise volume adjustments to each clip of the video, thus making it easier to create professional videos.
In terms of accessibility controls, improvements have been made with color correction and inverting, as well as the option to remove animations for users with special needs, such as visual impairments.
Funtouch OS 13 will be available from October 24, 2022, starting with the X80 Pro. vivo will gradually bring Funtouch OS 13 to more users around the world with the most innovative experiences yet.
