What’s new in the FunTouch OS 13?

The FouTouch OS 13 brings Vivo’s design-driven value with new and improved personalization options, updated security features, and new controls for a smoother experience.


FunTouch OS 13 Personalization

It comes with a monochrome icon feature that allows users to use the color from their favorite wallpaper and theme to the home screen, icons, and app interface. It’s just Material You for Vivo phones. This customization extends to notification panels, volume control, calculator, and clock as well.

Protection and Security

Vivo has added a feature called two-level pinning for increased security. It’s especially useful when someone uses our phone. It keeps the apps you select visible while blocking access to other apps on the device.

This feature can also be used to hide photos and videos. Similarly, you can restrict various applications’ access to specific photos, preventing unwanted viewing on the device.

Improved Application Management

Vivo’s in-house iManager app on the FunTouch OS 13 allows you to shut down any apps if the CPU usage becomes too high. It can also prevent overheating by reducing the number of active apps and adjusting the CPU frequency based on the cooling feature of the phone.


Photo_Videography Features

As a camera-centric brand, it’s natural to expect new photo and video enhancements from Vivo. Users can now mute the video’s sound and make precise volume adjustments on each segment of the video while editing. Similarly, the new stabilization ring in the professional viewfinder reduces the effects of shaky hands.
