Apple released its iOS 13.5 update for iPhone users worldwide. This update speeds up access to the passcode field on handsets that support FaceID while you are wearing a face mask.

The update also introduces the Exposure Notification API to support Covid-19 contact tracing apps from public health authorities. In addition to this, it brings an option to control the automatic prominence of video tiles on Group FaceTime calls and includes several other bug fixes with improvements.

Like we mentioned above, iOS 13.5 now lets you unlock the iPhone using FaceID even if you are wearing a face mask. Also, the UI will now show the passcode field automatically after swiping up from the bottom of the lock screen.

Face recognition with masks works with authentication in the App Store, Apple Books, Apple Pay, iTunes, and other apps that support signing in with Face ID.

Apple’s iOS 13.5 fixes a bug wherein iPhone users see a black screen when trying to play streaming video from some websites. It also addresses an issue in the share sheet where suggestions and actions may not load.
