Today, Apple has released to the public iOS 13.5. This update brings with it a number of new functions that help users during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Exposure Notification API and updates to the Face ID are two of the new functionality.

Faster Unlocking While Wearing Masks

The latter promises that iOS 13.5 will make it easier to unlock an iPhone with a mask. The update makes the operation quicker if a user’s face mask is identified. For such cases, it shows the passcode key quicker, and you can get into an iPhone quicker than when using a passcode.

It will be a significant upgrade for most users who wear a facial mask when they step out – particularly those involved in the health sector. It should be noted, however, that this update has only been applied to certain iPhones with the Face ID.

Exposure Notification API

Apple iOS 13.5

The Exposure Notification API built in collaboration between Apple and Google is, besides this, another major update on iOS 13.5. The API is intended to help facilitate the management of COVID-19 touch tracing data by public health authorities.

In order to access and monitor the list of keys for validated beacons from COVID-19 confirmed individuals via Bluetooth for the Exposure Notification API the API operates on the background.

Tweaks To Group Facetime

Apple has also tweaked Community FaceTime, which now disables the latest feature toggles the person speaking automatically.

Previously, the FaceTime Team introduced a dynamic view where the speaker had a bigger tile than the other speakers automatically. You can turn the function on in the FaceTime portion of the Settings app from a new section called “Automatic Prominence.”

Security Fixes And More

The update can also fix two security problems, one of which affected the iPhone and iPad mail app. The now patched vulnerability had previously allowed attackers to hack an iOS device remotely by sending emails that require significant memory consumption.
