Let’s start with the visual changes as that’s what you’re most likely to observe first. All the system-wide animations have been reimagined to feel three-dimensional as well as optimized for higher refresh rates. An app drawer has also been added, which can sort apps by category. Dark mode has also been improved and can now support third-party apps too. This option can be customized within the settings. The quick toggles in the notification shade have also been revamped to highlight the most important options.
