Apple has released iOS 13.5 and iPad 13.5 with features related to our post- COVID-19 world. The key to this is the simplified unlock process for masked devices without face ID, which works without telling everyone. The new system will automatically show the passcode field when you find yourself wearing a face mask, so you can enter the password and Bypass the face ID directly. It also works for unlocking devices and payments.
Another COVID-19 related feature is the support of the Exposure notification API to support COVID-19 contact tracing applications from public health authorities. This collaboration was created in collaboration with Google, which was released on the 20th of May in collaboration with Apple.
This is not an app, but an API that allows others to create apps that can take advantage of this feature. This feature is completely optional, at least for applications that use the API explicitly, but it’s worth remembering that not all contact tracing applications use this API. Thus, Apple and Google don’t benefit from the security and privacy features, so be careful when you install them.
Apple group is also changing the way it uses automatic prompts for video tiles during FaceTime call tasks. Currently, when you are on the group FaceTime call, all the video tiles of the current speaker will automatically become larger, but with this update, you can now choose to disable this feature, so that all the tiles are the same. No one becomes larger or smaller.
Apple also added the option to automatically share health and other essential information with emergency services from your medical id, when you make an emergency call(the US only).
The update also includes some bug fixes, such as blocking the screen and not sharing tips actions when playing streaming videos from certain websites. IOS 13.5 is available for download on all compatible devices namely iPhone, iPad, and iPad Touch models.
