UPDATE: DO NOT INSTALL | iOS 13.2 released, bringing Deep Fusion, new emoji, and more

Apple launched iOS 13.2 and iPadOS 13.2 today. The update brings 60 new emoji, the ability to opt-out of sharing Siri interactions with Apple, and Apple's Deep Fusion image processing technology for the iPhone 11 family of smartphones. However, given prior iOS 13 updates, it may be wise to wait on this one.

UPDATE 10/29/2019: DO NOT INSTALL iOS 13.2. If you own a HomePod and have installed iOS 13.2, DO NOT RESET YOUR HOMEPOD. Multiple users have reported that their HomePod was bricked after installing iOS 13.2. We have reported on this news here.

Apple released iOS 13.2 and iPadOS 13.2 today, bringing with them new emoji, new security features for Siri, and Apple’s Deep Fusion image processing technology.

iOS 13.2 adds 60 emoji to Apple’s mobile operating system. Counting all the variations of gender and skin tones, there are a total of 230 more options available. The update also brings Siri’s “Announce Messages” feature that was originally slated for iOS 13. This feature allows Siri to read messages out loud over AirPods and the new AirPods Pro.

Speaking of Siri, iOS 13.2 allows users to opt-out of sharing Siri interactions with Apple’s data centers.

Perhaps most importantly for iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max users, iOS 13.2 marks the introduction of Apple’s Deep Fusion image processing technology. Deep Fusion is designed to work background magic to improve image quality for the iPhone 11 family of phones. Deep Fusion relies on the A13 Bionic Neural Engine to “capture multiple images at various exposures, run a pixel-by-pixel analysis, and fuse the highest quality parts of the images together.” The end result should produce pictures with higher levels of detail and better low-light performance.

iPadOS 13.2 includes all of these features as well, save for the Deep Fusion technology. That software is reserved for devices running Apple’s A13 chip.

iOS 13.2 and iPadOS 13.2 are available for download today. Considering the buggy track record of iOS 13 updates, it may be wise to wait a few days to see if any quirks pop up in the news.

I've been a "tech-head" my entire life. After graduating college with a degree in Mathematics, I worked in finance and banking a few years before taking a job as a Systems Analyst for my local school district. I started working with Notebookcheck in October of 2016 and have enjoyed writing news articles and notebook reviews. My areas of interest include the business side of technology, retro gaming, Linux, and innovative gadgets. When I'm not hunched over an electronic device or writing code for a new database, I'm either outside with my family, playing a decade-old video game, or sitting behind a drum set.
