Apple’s big iOS 13.2 update unlocks the Deep Fusion camera feature on the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro. Deep Fusion uses the A13 processor’s neural engine to perform pixel-by-pixel processing of an image to enhance detail, enrich colors and remove noise.

iOS 13.2 adds 57 new emoji characters. Some of the new emoji include a sloth, flamingo, orangutan, skunk, waffle, falafel, butter garlic, guide dog, an ear with a hearing aid, wheelchairs, a prosthetic arm, a prosthetic leg and many more. The update also unlocks new gender and skin tone combinations for old characters. For example, you can now completely customize the holding-hands emoji

Some of the minor additions in iOS 13.2 include new privacy settings for Apple’s Research app. Tweaks were also made to the volume bar in Control Center to shows when you’re connected to AirPods. It also brings back the Announce Messages with ‌Siri‌ feature that was pulled from iOS 13.
