vivo launches Funtouch OS 13 overseas

vivo has officially launched the new Funtouch OS 13 for users in overseas markets.

The operating system is based on the newly released Android 13, and it combines vivo’s design-driven value with new and improved personalisation options, upgraded privacy and security features, and new control features for a smoother, uninterrupted experience.

Funtouch OS 13 highlights

Through the Funtouch OS 13, users will enjoy more visual control of their home screen as users can now use the monochrome icon feature to change the colour of their home screen icons to match their wallpaper, system and app interfaces.

Aside from that, the new system allows users to customise colours on their system’s UI and built-in apps, including their notification panels, volume control, calculator, and clock.

It can utilise the colour from the users’ preferred wallpaper and theme to determine the appropriate colour tint, applying it to the app interface to transform the device with a more personal look and feel.

Aside from that, the new app pinning feature also helps in keeping sensitive data secure, providing users with greater peace of mind regarding their security and privacy.

When another person uses the device, the two-level pinning function keeps the chosen app in view and prevents access to other apps on the device. This feature enables greater flexibility, allowing users to set parameters and control the allowed actions within the pinned app when other people are using the device.

This update also allows users to hide photos and videos, as well as selectively choose various applications’ access to specific photos, thereby preventing unwanted viewing on their devices and further enhancing privacy protection.

The Funtouch OS 13 also features improved application management with the iManager.

This app can specifically help monitor app usage time and help prevent overheating by reducing the number of active applications and adjusting 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 wish to instantly check the latest information concerning air quality with a detailed PM2.5 index available.

Also upgraded is a the viewfinder which now features a professional viewfinder. This makes photography easier with a new stabilisation ring that helps mitigate the effects of shaky hands.

Last but not least the new OS has also refined the video editing process, enabling users to mute the sound of the video while editing the footage and even make precise volume adjustments on each segment of the video, thus facilitating the creation of professional-grade videos.

In terms of accessibility controls, enhancements have been made with colour correcting and inversion, as well as the option to remove animations for users with specific needs, such as visual impairments
