What is new with the latest iOS 13.4 update?
Today apple released iOS and iPad iOS 13.4, the latest major update to the iOS 13 operating system that was released in September. So in this review we're gonna go over everything that's new in iOS 13.4.
For those who are frustrated with the toolbar change in the mail app fear not, apple has improved this toolbar with a few new changes. the revamped design moves the reply icon away from the delete icon, making it harder to accidentally delete an email and it also adds a folder and compose icon too. iCloud folder sharing was introduced back at WWDC last June but it's now finally available giving users the ability to share folders with other people and see real time updates to file changes and of course it will sync across all devices for those who have access to that folder. this was a pretty big feature to make iCloud drive a competitor with a dropbox.
Apple has also added new me emoji and animoji stickers to this update with new emoji style poses like be shocked face to face with hearts eyes rolling and much more. New settings in the TV app allow users to control streaming and downloading over wifi and cellular adding new data saving options for those who don't have unlimited streaming plans.
Also in iOS 13.4 we've seen hints of the new car key API which would allow the iPhone to be used to lock unlock and start a car that has NFC capabilities. Sharing features will also be available for a signing keys to friends and family members through the messages app. Car Key functionality really hasn't been announced by apple as of yet and it's not clear if it's coming soon but when it is launched it will allow iPhone users to use their devices in lieu of a Car Key.
There's also a new shortcuts option to shazaam it when creating a short cut in the short cuts app which would be a quicker and easier way to identify what song is currently playing. Lastly here is an iPad OS specific update there are new keyboard shortcuts for the photos that so more specifically shortcuts to switch between different tabs at the bottom create Albums search and more... if you're currently viewing a photo there even short cuts to delete duplicate or edit a photo so for a full list of those shortcuts to simply hold down the comman key inside of any section of the app to see what's available.
iOS 13.4 introduces a major new feature official cursor support which goes along with apple's new magic keyboard for the 2020 iPad pro that will be released later this may. we did an entire article showing off how the cursor works with current magic track pads and the magic mouse.
iOS 13.4 will most likely be 1 of the last major updates to the iOS 13 operating system as we start to turn our attention and focus towards iOS 14 but of course I would love to know your thoughts on all the new changes and features that are coming today with the latest update in the comments section down below.
