The software brings the Discover negative screen and the Material You design that includes the monet coloring engine, as well as some key features from Android 13, such as app permission notifications and separate app language settings. The first devices with Android 13 Go Edition will be available in 2023.

However, the current information is not clear whether Face ID will be used on the iPhone SE 4, Apple may use Touch ID on the side buttons to reduce costs, and continue to equip the newer A-series processor.
