Deep Fusion: iOS 13.2 enhances camera from iPhone 11 Pro

Last updated on March 9, 2021

Deep Fusion produces more detailed images in low light conditions. Further innovations concern Siri and Emojis. Users of older iPhones and iPads also need to install the latest iOS update to avoid losing access to some Apple services.

Apple has released the next update for iOS 13. The version 13.2 not only fixes bugs, it also brings new features. However, the most important novelty is only available to owners of the iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max. A technology called Deep Fusion should improve photos in low light conditions.

According to the release notes, Deep Fusion uses the Neural Engine of the A13 Bionic Processor to perform a pixel-by-pixel analysis of multiple images captured at different exposures. Similar to the HDR mode, the best parts of the image are combined “to produce photos with significantly improved textures and details as well as reduced image errors”. In addition, it is now possible on the three smartphones to change the video resolution directly in the camera app.

All iOS devices will have more than 70 new and updated emojis available after upgrading to iOS 13.2. They also support the new AirPods Pro and a feature that allows Siri to read messages over Apple’s wireless headphones.

The privacy settings of Siri in turn allow Apple to prohibit the evaluation of audio recordings – or just to allow. In addition, the history of the Siri communication and the dictation function in the Siri settings can now be deleted.

The bug fixes include the password manager, the on-screen keyboard, the news app, the contacts app, and the notes app. The past should also include the problem that a manually triggered iCloud backup is not terminated correctly. In addition, the iPhone X (and newer) after a swipe gesture reliably display the home screen.

Apart from iOS 13.2, iPadOS 13.2 is also available for download. This update also delivers the fixes and improvements included in iOS 13.2. Furthermore, both updates plug an unspecified number of security holes – details about the patches Apple will submit shortly.

In addition, Appel points out that users of iPhone 5 and earlier as well as older iPads will have to install the updates for iOS 9 and 10 released in July by 3 November at the latest. Apple will require it in future for the use of its services such as App Store and iCloud the iOS versions 10.3.4 or 9.3.6. After 3 November, the update is no longer available over the air and is only available as part of a restore via iTunes. More details Apple calls in a support article .
