Golden Master Version Of iOS 13.5, watchOS 6.2.5, And tvOS 13.4.5 Now Out

Apple has released the golden master versions of iOS 13.5 and iPadOS 13.5 updates, while the company also seeded the golden master versions of watchOS 6.2.5 and tvOS 13.4.5. If you have enrolled in Apple's Developer Program, then the beta updates are now ready for you to download and install over-the-air.

iOS 13.5 introduces an exposure notification API in beta capacity to enable public health authorities to begin developing COVID–19 contact tracing apps that reap the benefits of it. Most of the features are for health-related apps that will implement the new API, but there is a toggle that is built to allow users to opt-out of COVID-19 exposure notifications.

Apple has also tweaked the way a Face ID-supported iPhone unlocks when wearing a mask, where the passcode screen shows up instantly when an ‌iPhone‌ detects that a mask is covering the face after a user swipes upward.

Moreover, iOS 13.5 includes the ability to review users' Medical ID settings when opening the Health app, allowing them to share Medical ID info during an emergency call and on the Lock screen. Apple says that it "can automatically send the information in your Medical ID to the dispatcher who answers your call."

With iOS 13.5, users can now share songs from Apple Music on Instagram Stories as well as Facebook Stories. The update also contains references of Apple working on the CarKey API support.

There is a new section under the FaceTime settings called "Automatic Prominence," which includes a toggle to disable the feature that automatically enlarges the tile of the person who is speaking, so now that all of the people using ‌FaceTime‌ are displaying in a grid with equal-sized windows.

Additionally, the update also addresses two security vulnerabilities that affect the Mail app on iOS devices. One vulnerability let an attacker to remotely infect an iOS device by sending emails that utilize a significant amount of memory, while another allowed remote code execution.

There is a VPN bug present on iOS 13 versions, while Apple released iOS 13.4.1 to address FaceTime issue and a bug in the Settings app, it's unlikely that Apple patched the VPN bug with iOS 13.4.1, thus, the iOS 13.5 update could likewise fix the VPN-related vulnerability.

We are, though, unclear what new features are included in the watchOS 6.2.5 and tvOS 13.4.5 updates. However, the release notes are generic. Apple said: "This version contains bug fixes and improvements." Nevertheless, we will keep an eye on the updates to ensure if there are new features. If they do, we will update the post as soon as possible.

It's expected that iOS 13.4.5, tvOS 13.4.5, and watchOS 6.2.5 are likely to be one of the last updates of the current operating system before their successor coming out this fall.
