iOS 13.5 Released! The COVID-19 Update

by birtanpublished on December 4, 2020

Yo what's up guys sam here welcome back to another video i hope all of you are doing well today we're checking out ios 13.5 you call this the ios covid update with some cool features for face unlock with a mask on and tracking notifications and on top of that there's some other cool stuff in here as well that i want to show you some nice bug fixes so if you're looking forward to the update seeing what's new drop a like down below it does seriously help me and the channel out and hit subscribe so you stay up to date on the latest apple news alright so first up guys by far my

Favorite feature in this update is the uh the new face id mask detection this is pretty cool let me show you how it works so when this is working as expected you can see it scans my face and it unlocks just like that doesn't show the passcode just says face id or sometimes it's so fast that it doesn't even need to show anything but if i put a mask on like right now and sort of cover up my mouth another audio sounds terrible watch what happens this time you can see it immediately takes me straight to the passcode section right here which is

Really smart again this is with a mask on straight to the past good section because it knows it can't scan your face and then normal if i take my mask off look at that i'm right in my phone per usual this is super cool i want to hear your thoughts on this down below crazy that a pandemic has actually caused some innovation on the iphone but sure enough here we have it so for cobia 19 specifically that's the first update but if you head over to settings and then go over to privacy you'll

Notice there's been some pretty big changes as well in the health area it's called covid19 exposure logging and this is how it works opt-in means that you have to opt-in to actually be a part of the program and when that happens your iphone is going to send out a random id and collect a random id so if you say coveted positive every single person that your iphone comes close to probably within like six to 10 feet or something like that their phone if they've also opted in

Will get notified and say hey you've come into contact with somebody with kovid you should probably self quarantine just to be extra safe it also works vice versa if you run into somebody else that actually has opted in and said they have covid you will be notified again through random ids stored on device and you will say hey you should be careful because you've come into contact with somebody ever since i've heard about this i've been a huge fan everything is stored on device and the

Random ids are deleted after 14 days i think it's genius you can also tap here to learn more and apple has a whole write-up about privacy and how this data is not going anywhere they're not sending it or distributing it or selling it uh which is impressive that they also got google to agree to that but this is like the big sort of human first feature here and i gotta get props to apple this is pretty genius next up totally unrelated if any of you are curious about my wallpaper i will leave a link

To it down below it's one of my favorites that i've been using recently it's actually one of the new iphone se wallpapers and i've got it over on my brand new site apple track so if you want to go ahead and get one of these for yourself check out the link down below also in the update is a new health feature inside of the health app believe it or not health feature inside of the health app pretty much forever on the lock screen you're probably familiar with this feature right here the emergency section and then also

Medical id which if you tap on that if you've again opted into this and put in your information could display some critical things about you if you were ever in need and a first responder like grabbed your phone to see what you were allergic to your conditions so on and so forth mine has some personal info so i'm not going to show it on screen but it looks something like this and i was 13.5 apple's going a step further here and giving you the option to send this to emergency services

Automatically so instead of somebody actually having to get your phone and see it there as you make a 911 call your data could be sent to them automatically now again don't freak out it's all opt-in you don't actually have to do this so it makes you uncomfortable you do not have to turn on medical id or anything but for those of us that are interested in sharing that data for getting the best possible help again i think apple's ahead of the game here something that could really like genuinely help people it's not just

Like oh you know mass detection which is cool next up a lot of people have been at home recently using the group facetime feature out a ton and realized that a group facetime wallet is incredible to connect a bunch of people at once it's kind of annoying that whoever's speaking is constantly getting larger so like the tiles as you can see in this demo right here they're constantly changing in size they're extremely annoying because it kind of gives your brain like you know too much activity to handle at one time

Sometimes you just want to look at some standard video similar to zoom and apple has brought that feature to your iphone now head over to settings and then facetime and then right here you can see automatic prominence speaking is turned on by default so the person speaking will automatically become larger if you don't want that you want it more standard uh you can turn it off just like that and facetime it's gonna be way less annoying in the group form than it was before and it might actually allow your brain to you know focus on what the

Person's saying rather than how much bigger their head is than uh than everybody else's so again going along with pretty much everything else so far getting an update due to uh due to a virus out there kind of wild all right now for the health stuff let's actually take a look at something a lot more fun there's a new way to share apple music songs to instagram just like everybody flexes on you with spotify well you've got something to do now so just tap on this button for a song you want to share and then right here you get

This bar you notice there's a new option for instagram watch what happens when you tap on that it shoots you into this really cool story view let me go ahead and zoom out here and basically auto creates uh what i think is one of the cooler looking instagram stories out there like auto generator wise it has this dynamically changing background you can drag this around and it lets the user view in your story then tap on that and stream the song on apple music now not only is this genius for apple marketing

I mean hey this looks really really good and i gotta say apple's done a great job here like also check out the song it's a banger by oliver tree and finally running out the update there are a couple of bug fixes apples confirmed in the change log as well first off on some websites when you try to play a video you get like a black screen instead of what you wanted to actually see i'm not gonna i'm not gonna say i experienced that on uh on on some certain on some certain websites i'm just gonna

Say it was fixed when i was 13.5 and heading back to the share sheet for the second bug fix apple confirmed they said that options or suggestions sometimes would load properly and that should be fixed in ios 13.5 so what do you think of this update cannot believe we've seen a 13.5 update fun fact the first ever ios 0.5 update in the history of ios and i think now it is safe to say that this will be the last major ios 13 update with the ios 14 beta just around the corner at apple's worldwide

Developers conference on june 22nd uh you know we said about it was 13.4 but unless another pandemic just pops up out of nowhere i uh i think this one is gonna be it so that's i was 13.5 i've had a great experience with it i like it i think it's good and apple's doing some pretty innovative stuff here drop a like if you enjoyed this video hit subscribe for more and i'll see all of you in my next video peace out
