With HomeKit lights, for example, there’s the main display with brightness controls front and center (as it was before), but now, if lights have multiplied colors, you’ll see a variety of preferences at the bottom rather than having to tap on the color button at the bottom. There are also numerous new icons for different HomeKit types such as water sensors, motion sensors, and air quality sensors, making it more comfortable to recognize what’s what at a glance, and in iOS 13.1, the icons are going to get even more specific.
