iOS 13.7 & iPadOS 13.7 Update Available to Download
Apple has released iOS 13.7 for iPhone and iPod touch along with iPadOS 13.7 for iPad.
iOS 13.7 includes support for COVID “Exposure Notifications Express”, a feature that allows health authorities to participate in the COVID-19 Exposure Notification system without having to rely on a separate app. Currently, most regions, states, and localities do not support the COVID notification system, though many areas are apparently working on participating in the exposure notification program created by Apple and Google.
Aside from the coronavirus notification system changes, iOS 13.7 and iPadOS 13.7 also include small bug fixes as well.
How to Download iOS 13.7 & iPadOS 13.7 Updates
