The new system also allows users to customize colors on their system’s UI and built-in apps. It includes notification panels, volume control, calculator, and the clock.

It can use the color from the users’ preferred wallpaper and theme to determine the appropriate color tint. The new app interface transforms the device with a more personal look and feel.

Protection and Security

If another person uses the device, its two-level pinning function keeps the chosen app in view and prevents access to other apps on the device.

The new app pinning feature keeps sensitive data secure. It provides users better security and privacy.

This feature allows greater flexibility. It allows the owner to set parameters. It can also control the allowed actions within the pinned app when other people use the device. 

The update allows users to hide photos and videos. They can also choose the apps that have access to specific photos. It further prevents unwanted viewing on their devices and enhances privacy protection.

Controls and Features

The Funtouch OS 13 features an improved application management called the iManager. It can specifically help monitor app usage time.

If the CPU usage is too high, users can shut that application down with one tap.

iManager can also prevent overheating. It reduces the number of active applications and adjusts CPU frequency based on the phone cooling feature.
