The news: Apple just released iOS 13.7 with significant improvements to the exposure notification system.

  • The new feature, Exposure Notifications Express, allows for COVID-19 exposure notifications with needing to download a specific government-issued app
  • iOS 13.7 marks the first time Apple has ever released an iOS X.7 firmware update

Our take: This is an interesting move considering that later this month, iOS 14 is releasing for everyone. Seems like Apple really wanted to push this out ASAP.
