In addition, it is now possible to edit media files with new “alignment guides” (as if they were rulers) that help position stickers, emojis, and other types of stickers on images uploaded to Status (similar to Instagram).

The acclaimed Halide photography app has anticipated iOS 13.2's release and has added support for the feature since early this week. Deep fusion 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max. Now, with the latest version of the OS now available, users of the new handsets will be able to “capture significantly better texture, detail and noise reduction images” with the Deep fusion, according to Apple.

In addition, this version also includes another novelty called “Intelligent Processing” (Smartest Processing), also compatible with the XS and XS Max iPhones. With it, users will be able to shoot with the best possible image processing, combining the power of Smart HDR with Halide's camera adjustment options.

The fans of RAW photography, however, will have to choose the best option when taking their photos because iOS won't allow you to capture RAW images with Halide's intelligent processing feature. To disable RAW, simply tap the QuickBar and select HEIC or JPG format.

In addition, the update fixes some issues with depth control and reduces memory usage to avoid possible crashes.

In addition, the update implements support for Google Nest devices, making it possible to initiate or receive calls through speakers.
