Apple has released iOS 13.5 and iPadOS 13.5 with features related to our post-COVID-19 world. The way to go about this is the simplified unlock process for masked devices with Face ID, which should work without telling everyone. The new system will automatedly reveal the passcode field when you find yourself wearing a face mask, so the user can enter the passcode and bypass the Face ID directly. It also works for unlocking devices and payments.
In addition to the above Corona related feature, it is also the support of the Exposure Notification API to support COVID-19 contact tracing Applications from public health authorities. The collaboration was created in collaboration with Google, which is releasing today in collaboration with Apple.
This is not an Application, but on the contrary an API that allows others to create apps that can take advantage of this feature. This feature is optional, at least for applications that use the API explicitly, but it is worth remembering that not all contact tracing applications use this API, and thus Apple and Google do not benefit from the security and privacy features, so be careful when you install
Apple Group is also changing the way it uses automatic prompts for video tiles during FaceTime Call Tasks. Presently, when the user is on a group FaceTime call, the video tile of the current speaker will automatically become larger, but with this update you can now choose to disable that feature so that all the tiles are the same
Apple has 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 (US only).
The update also includes some bug fixes, such as blocking the screen and not sharing tips and actions when playing streaming videos from certain websites.
iOS 13.5 is now available for download on all compatible iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch models.
