iOS 13.5 Beta 3 Has Toggle to Enable COVID-19 Exposure Notifications, Skips Face ID When Wearing Mask


The new iOS 13.5 beta seeded to developers today includes a toggle that allows testers to enable COVID-19 exposure notifications.
Here's what happens when you toggle the feature on:

Once enabled, users’ devices will regularly send out a beacon via Bluetooth that
includes a privacy-preserving identifier — basically, a string of random numbers that aren’t tied
to a user's identity and change every 10-20 minutes for additional protection. Other phones will
be listening for these beacons and broadcasting theirs as well. When each phone receives
another beacon, it will record and securely store that beacon on the device.
