iOS 13.2 now Available With Deep Fusion, new Emoji, Siri Privacy Settings, More
Apple today is officially releasing iOS 13.2 and iPadOS 13.2 to the public. This comes after beta testing throughout the month. iOS 13.2 includes the new Deep Fusion camera technology for iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro, new emoji, and more. tvOS 13.2 is also now available.
There are over 60 new emoji and emoji variations in iOS 13.2. Apple first previewed these emoji over the summer, and they are now available for everyone. In total, the new 2019 emoji set includes 59 new characters that make up for 75 total variations when gender options are taken into account, and 230 options when skin tone options are included.
iOS 13.2 also includes the Announce Messages with Siri feature that was originally meant for iOS 13. This feature allows Siri to read messages back to you when connected to AirPods or other headphones with Apple’s H1 chip.
Perhaps most notably, especially for iPhone 11 users, iOS 13.2 includes Apple’s new Deep Fusion camera technology. Deep Fusion is Apple’s new image processing technology that works in the background to improve image quality for iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro users.
iOS 13.2 also includes new Siri privacy settings that allow you to opt in or opt out of sharing your Siri interactions with Apple. You’ll see a new splash screen the first time you boot into iOS 13.2 asking your preference.
Last but not least, iOS 13.2 also includes support for the just-announced AirPods Pro. This includes settings for Transparency and Active Noise Cancellation modes.
Here are the full release notes for iOS 13.2 and iPadOS 13.2. You can download the update now by going to Settings, then General, then Software Update on your device.
iOS 13.2 introduces Deep Fusion, an advanced image processing system that uses the A13 Bionic Neural Engine to capture images with dramatically better texture, detail, and reduced noise in lower light, on iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max. Additional features include updated and additional emoji, Announce Messages for AirPods, support for AirPods Pro, HomeKit Secure Video, HomeKit enabled routers, and new Siri privacy settings.
