Apple iOS 13.5 Releases with COVID-19 Specific Features
Apple iOS 13.5 and iPad OS 13.5 have just come out with 19 features. The most interesting feature in the new update is that it is an easy unlock process for devices with face ID for mask wearers. So, if you’re out wearing a mask, you can easily unlock your phone because Face ID automatically stops trying again.

It will automatically show up in the passcode field when it detects that the user is wearing a face mask, so the user can enter the passcode and bypass fee ID directly. This works for things like unlocking the device as well as paying in apps.
Applinsider said in a blog:
“For iOS and iPadOS, the update to 13.5 largely centres around COVID-19. One feature change in the betas involved software hooks required for the Exposure Notification API, which would allow contact tracing apps to provide notifications to users.”
According to Apple, the HomePod is coming with an update. Version 13.4.5 of HomePod OS includes improvements in stability and performance.
The new update brings another COVID-19 related feature that supports the exposure notification API to support apps that contact COVID-19 by public health authorities. This feature has been created in partnership with Google.
