The first quarter of 2020 has come to an end, have you achieved any of your goals? Although it is April, Apple has not stopped for its own iOS system updates. It’s not just this early morning that Apple released developer preview beta updates for iOS 13.4.5, macOS Catalina 10.15.5, and tvOS 13.4.5 to developers. This will be the last update to add new features to iOS 13, and before iOS 14 is released, Apple will only roll out bug fixes for iOS 13. It is not clear why iOS 13.4.1 is not iOS 13.4.1 after iOS 13.4, but jumped directly to iOS 13.4.5.
Mingmei’s infinite guess may be that iOS 13.4.1 will not launch a beta version, but will directly release the official version update, which is mainly used to fix problems in iOS 13.4. Apple has reserved a few more version numbers for this purpose. .
The iOS 13.4.5 beta build number is 17F5034c, the main update focuses on bug fixes and performance improvements, and the release notes for this update are generic.
In the version of Apple iOS 13.4.5, Apple updated the development interface of the CarKey API, that is, the function that the iPhone or Apple Watch can be used as a car key.
It is reported that the introduction of the CarKey car key function first appeared in the iOS 13.4 beta system, and has not appeared in the official version at present. It reshapes the future function of Apple’s iPhone product planning.
According to the actual test of the electrocardiogram (ECG) function on iOS 13.4.5 Beta1, it can still be used normally. As for whether the new version of watchOS will be corrected? The latest test report will also be brought to you later.
It is also worth mentioning today that after the official version of iOS 13.4 is released, Apple will naturally close the previous system version, which is also their usual operation.
From the latest situation, Apple has stopped the verification of iOS 13.3.1, which means that users can no longer downgrade to iOS 13.3.1, so users who want to upgrade should be mentally prepared in advance.
Apple previously added emoji stickers in iOS 13.4, shared iCloud drive folders from the “Files” app, universal purchases and CarPlay in-car dashboard support for third-party navigation features, and more.
In addition, iOS 13.4 is likely to be the end point of iOS 13 feature development, that is, the iterations before the release of iOS 14 revolve around bug fixes, security updates, and stability improvements.
As is customary, Apple will debut the iOS 14 operating system at its WWDC developer conference in June, followed by a new iPhone launch in September.
It is worth noting that due to the impact of the epidemic, the WWDC developer conference has been converted to online, and all technology companies have begun to work online. Whether the iOS 14 operating system can appear as scheduled, there are still variables!
Finally, what Mingmei wants to say is: With the release of the official version of iOS 13.4, more than a week has passed. Many users also said that iOS 13.4 has been greatly upgraded in terms of battery life and smoothness. In a survey report on iOS 13.4 version before Mingmei Infinite Official Account, the total number of respondents was 1243, of which The number of people who think “iOS 13.4 has a very good experience and is the best version of the current iOS 13 system” accounted for 56% of the total, or 694 people; 349 people, who accounted for 28%, thought the experience of iOS 13.4 was average; 196 people, who accounted for 16%, felt that the iOS 13.4 version was a poor experience.
