Apple launched the new version of iOS 13.5, which comes with two features resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, where an easier way to unlock the iPhone through FaceID is available even using a mask and support for exposure notifications with the virus.
There were many complaints from iPhone users who were unable to unlock their equipment when they used a mask, but Apple created a way to help, where there will always be an option to enter the unlock code whenever this problem occurs. To get to this step, just swipe up from the bottom of the screen.
Although it is not the solution expected by many, this is an excellent way to facilitate unlocking without privacy being called into question, since to unlock the face the entire face of the user is necessary, which with a mask is virtually covered.
The second novelty of iOS 13.5 is the functional implementation of the COVID-19 exposure notification API, developed by Apple and Google. Now with applications from public health entities, users can start receiving notifications whenever someone, who also has the option, has been diagnosed with COVID-19. The API will only work if there is an application to use it.
In the future, this API can be fully implemented on Apple and Google systems without the need for third party applications, so that there is better control by all users.
