Apple once pushed iOS 13.5 beta 3 on April 30. The original version number of this iOS should be iOS 13.4.5, but because Apple wants to add an API that it has promised to improve for tracking patients with new coronavirus outbreaks. , So they have to change to a new SDK and can no longer use the iOS 13.4 SDK, so the version number has been upgraded.

Today, Apple officially started pushing iOS 13.5. At present, if you agree to give your location information and other data to the official new coronavirus outbreak patient tracking application in your country, you can check whether the person you have recently contacted is a new coronavirus outbreak patients.

In addition, the iPhone will now skip the Face ID verification link and enter the PIN code unlocking step when it detects that the user is wearing a mask.

iOS 13.3.1

This undoubtedly solved a big problem encountered by users of iPhone models equipped with Face ID during this new coronavirus outbreak, because now everyone must wear a mask outside, so if the phone does not support fingerprint unlocking, then only It is possible to unlock the phone by entering the PIN code, and the current official version of iOS must wait for the system to recognize the Face ID failure after unlocking before entering the PIN code input interface, which is undoubtedly a particularly irritating thing.

iOS 13.5 also brings a new feature, you can now share songs, albums, and playlists in Apple Music to Facebook and Instagram platforms.

In addition, Apple will hold the WWDC conference on June 22, when iOS 14, iPadOS 14, watchOS 7, macOS 10.16, and tvOS14 will be released.
