Apple releases update that will greatly improve photography on the 2019 iPhones
Apple iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max users should be thrilled today with the release of iOS 13.2. That's because with the update comes the Deep Fusion technology that will improve images snapped with the cameras on the 2019 iPhones. Deep Fusion captures eight images of a scene using various exposures before the shutter is pressed. The nine frames created are examined pixel-by-pixel using the Neural Processing Unit (NPU) in the A13 Bionic chip to produce a final image with better details and less noise.

This update also forces users to opt-in if they don't mind Apple using recorded snippets of  their Siri requests to improve the virtual digital assistant. During the summer, it was discovered that Apple, like Amazon and Google, has teams listening all day to users asking Siri questions or demanding that it perform certain tasks. The problem is that these recordings were made without the knowledge of users and some of them included the sound of Apple's customers engaging in sexual activity or speaking with their doctor about sensitive health issues. Apple stopped the practice for now and requires users opt-in to remain part of the program.

59 new emoji arrive with iOS 13.2, including different skin tones for the same emoji; overall, iOS users will have 230 new options to choose from when they want to spice up a message. Announce Messages with Siri is a feature that debuts in iOS 13.2. With the update, users with devices that employ Apple's H1 chip, like the second generation AirPods and the AirPods Pro, will be able to hear Siri narrate incoming text messages. Immediately after the virtual assistant finishes reading an incoming text out loud, Siri will be ready to take dictation on a reply.


Along with iOS 13.2, iPadOS 13.2 and tvOS 13.2 can also be installed on compatible devices. Go to Settings > General > Software Update. Keep in mind that those of you looking to purchase the just announced AirPods Pro or Beats Solo Pro will have to download the update since the premium versions of Apple's wireless Bluetooth earpods require that the iPhone, iPad and AppleTV+ run iOS 13.2, iPadOS 13.2 and tvOS13.2 respectively. Both will also sync with Apple Watch units driven by watchOS 6.1.
