Masked iPhone, Google’s smart lanyard and Facebook’s new office rules
Apple has released an iOS 13.5 update, which should make it easier for a person to unlock their phone using Face ID if its owner wears a medical mask. The essence of the update is that now the user can immediately unlock the iPhone with a password, if the identification by face has failed, before you had to wait a few seconds. In addition, according to The Verge, the new iOS supports the API for joint technology between Apple and Google, which allows users to find out that they were in contact with someone who was diagnosed with COVID-19. This technology, however, is inactive until the user installs an application that uses the API. In the future, the technology will work without installing special applications.

The invention, which was called I / O Braid, is an “electronic fabric” that responds to tapping, pressing, squeezing, twisting, and the like. A special matrix is ​​used in the lace, consisting of two types of textile threads, which serve as a transmitting and receiving electrode. In response to actions, the user will receive an audio, tactile or visual “response” from the cord – for example, it may flicker, and the music, respectively, switch or rewind. Google suggests using the technology not only directly in the headphones, but also in clothing.
