Apple’s iOS 13.5 makes it easier to unlock your iPhone while wearing a mask

 

Apple on Wednesday released the public version of iOS 13.5, which unlocks your iPhone, making face masks easier. This is an important update for those, especially frontline health workers, who spend most of their time wearing face masks.

If you use an iPhone with a built-in Face ID, the update bypasses the Face ID feature to speed up the unlocking process. Sure, you’ll need to enter your passcode to unlock your iPhone, but at least the time to unlock the iPhone will be reduced. Once again, just to clarify, Face ID is available on some iPhones starting with the iPhone X.

The update is already live. You can install iOS 13.5 by opening the Settings app and going to General> Software Update.

In addition, Apple also introduced a new COVID exposure notification feature in iOS 13.5. Software that will use Bluetooth technology will build the app to alert public health officials about people who are in close proximity to someone who has tested positive for a novel coronavirus. Both Apple and Google are included in the Coronavirus contact tracing software. Currently, around 22 countries from five continents have requested access to its software. You can find this feature in Settings> Privacy> Health> COVID-19 exposure logging.

Last but not least, iOS 13.5 also fixes the annoying group FaceTime feature: auto-sizing tiles. “This update also offers an option to control the automatic prominence of video tiles over group FaceTime calls and includes bug fixes and other improvements,” Apple explains on its iOS support page.

In separate news, Apple has reportedly leaked augmented reality (AR) specs. He is speculated to spend $ 499 and work with prescriptions.
