Apple Released iOS 13.5 with Covid-19 Tracking

Apple just released iOS 13.5 that includes exposure logging for COVID-19. The random IDs your device collects are stored in an exposure log for 14 days. This allows you and others to get notified if you have been exposed to the Corona Virus based on how close you are to other devices using Bluetooth.

Other new features in iOS 13.5 include making it easier for FACE ID to recognize you when wearing a mask.

In Group FaceTime there is an Automatic Prominence feature that allows the tile of the person speaking to automatically become larger.

Here is the official change log for iOS 13.5:

OS 13.5 speeds up access to the passcode field on devices with Face ID when you are wearing a face mask and introduces the ?Exposure Notification? API to support COVID-19 contact tracing apps from public health authorities. This update also introduces an option to control automatic prominence of video tiles on Group ?FaceTime? calls and includes bug fixes and other improvements.

Face ID and Passcode
– Simplified unlock process for devices with Face ID when you are wearing a face mask
– Passcode field automatically presented after swiping up from the bottom of the Lock screen when you are wearing a face mask
– Also works when authenticating with the App Store, Apple Books, Apple Pay, iTunes, and other apps that support signing in with Face ID

?Exposure Notification?
– ?Exposure Notification? API to support COVID-19 contact tracing apps from public health authorities

?FaceTime?
– Option to control automatic prominence on Group ?FaceTime? calls so video tiles do not change size when a participant speaks

Emergency Services
– Option to automatically share health and other essential information from your Medical ID with emergency services when you place an emergency call (US only)

This update also includes bug fixes and other improvements.
– Fixes an issue where users may see a black screen when trying to play streaming video from some websites
– Addresses an issue in the share sheet where suggestions and actions may not load
