On November 3, 2021, Angular (TypeScript based web framework) released its latest version ‘Angular 13’. These 13 new upgrades and changes help Angular developers to enhance their development process.
Let’s discuss the new updates and highlights of Angular 13 in detail.
Instead of View Engine, Angular 13 is now 100% IVY. Since View Engine metadata are not considered, the maintenance cost and code complicacies are reduced in Angular 13, which is one of the best updates to Angular technology.
Angular v13 is now based on TypeScript 4.4 and removed the TypeScript 4.3 and TypeScript 4.2. With this change, the developer can use many exciting language features and Angular 13 muted the setters and getters to get a similar type (this means, there is no implementation of setters and getters).
By making some changes to TestBed, it is working better and taking care of modules and test environments after every completed test. With this update, Angular 13 developers can run more optimized and quicker tests with less memory.
With notable changes to Angular CLI, it supports build cache by default. It increases the development speed to 68% and developers can turn this feature ON/OFF based on their preference in their current Angular applications.

Angular V13 is providing a new form type: FormControlStatus which collects status strings for the form control.
By finishing ng update step, developers will have inline support to their Adobe Fonts. Everyone can access these features and enhance their app performance.
This new Angular version 13 provided enhancements to the Angular material and Material Design Components (MDC) to improve accessibility. For instance, larger checkbox sizes, contrast mode increase, and a lot more exciting changes are waiting for Angular 13 developers to improve their applications.
To help users enjoy the native web APIs benefits, Angular 13 has no longer supports Internet Explorer 11. It gives quick load time and a small bundle size for applications. Even it does not affect modern browser users, it may be an essential update to IE users.
Angular Package Format (APF) defines the structure of Angular Framework packages and helps in packaging 3rd party library in the web development process.
Angular 13 brought a few changes to this APF and some of them are:
> No UMD bundle production
> Produces ES2020 output
> Produces Ivy partial compilation output and more.
Angular 13 programmers can build dynamic components with less boilerplate codes. This is possible due to the improvement in ViewContainerRef.createComponent API.
Angular 13 also brings changes to the frameworks and dependencies and now RxJS v7.4 is the available option for apps that are built with ng new. Older versions have to update it.
These 13 features of Angular 13 excite you to create a high-performance Angular application.
