Registered Apple developers can already get the finalized version of iOS 13.4 and iPadOS 13.4 ahead of its public debut on March 24.

Apple released the Golden Master builds iOS 13.4, iPadOS 13.4, watchOS 6.2, macOS Catalina 10.15.4, and tvOS 13.4 on its developer today, bringing a host of new features to iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Apple TV and Mac.

Developers can grab the new software directly from Apple’s online developer. You can also install iOS 13.4 via an over-the-air update if you have one of the previous beta builds installed.

What’s inside iOS 13.4?

One of the biggest new additions in iOS 13.4 is the new trackpad support for the iPad Pro Magic keyboard introduced today. It also adds improved support for keyboards that are usually used on Windows PCs.

Apple is making it easier to collaborate on documents and other files with the new iCloud Drive folder sharing. The feature allows you to upload content to your folders and then share a link to it so they can access it.

On the fun side, iOS 13.4 and its iPad-equivalent add a bunch of new Memoji stickers that can be used just like regular emoji. Some of the new Memoji include Party Horn, Rolling Eyes and Person Behind a Computer. Apple also made some updates to the interface of the Mail app. The Apple TV app for iPhone and iPad also now comes with the option to control the size of downloads as well as lowering the amount of data used while streaming content.
