What to Expect from Apple iOS 13.4 Launch

It’s always a great thing when an update to an operating system is released, and this is especially true if it’s an update to the iOS. That update is expected to be launched this week, with various new features coming to light as part of it. Some of these are great additions to the software, which iOS users will find most inviting.

Obviously, with Europe being quite contained at the moment due to the coronavirus threat, the likelihood is that many of us are going to be spending a lot more time navigating through our phones. That’s why the potential launch of iOS 13.4 is a lot more interesting. After all, the updates to the operating system may actually be noticed this time around.

So, what exactly are the new features coming as part of the software update? Well, while there are one or two exciting inclusions, don’t get over-enticed. It’s not specifically mind-blowing stuff. Perhaps the biggest step for the Apple brand with this update is universal purchases for Mac and iOS apps. In a bid to unify the App Store across all of its devices, the 13.4 update means that if you buy an app on your iPhone for example, it’s also possible for that same app to show up on your Mac. Of course, the developer of that app also has to say that it’s fine for this to take place, too.

Extra Inclusions with the News Update

As well as having universal purchases, iOS 13.4 is expected to include the CarKey API. Basically, this will transform your iOS device into, well, a key for your car as well. At the moment, it’s probably quite safe to say that there aren’t any vehicles with the CarKey support built into them, although if it’s being included in the iOS update, it’s possible that companies will begin developing apps to be able to take advantage of it. Potentially, more car manufacturers will then design their vehicles to cater to this.

Something else that will be included in the update is a set of nine new Memoji stickers. Not really earth-shattering news for the 13.4 updates. The Mail app will also be improved thanks to the introduction of a new toolbar, which incorporates some standard functions for users to benefit from.
Therefore, you’ll be able to move messages, send items to trash, flag mail and more. So, if you sign up to an online sportsbook for example, and you want to ensure that you receive mail from such, this will work wonders. Speaking of which, there’s the site Silentbet that compares sportsbooks for you to benefit from.

Other additions with the update include iCloud folder sharing, allowing you to share specific iCloud folders with people. And to add to that, there’s the ability to access the voice-activated assistant, Siri on iOS 13.4 while your device is face-down or out of action. That’s something you’ll need to specifically activate on the phone though, so it won’t automatically be coming into action.

3 There’s no way to directly reply to the received messages via Sarahah. However, Sarahah is reportedly working on the reply option. In the ‘About’ page of Sarahah website, it is clearly mentioned that the developers are studying the reply option. “You can’t respond to messages now. We are studying this option,” Sarahah mentions on its website. Further, Sarahah founder also said that the team is working on several other features, which the “users will like”. People who know your Sarahah profile link will be able to send anonymous messages. Further, there’s also a search bar to find who all are registered with Sarahah.

4 There’ll be no name, no information about the sender of the message anywhere. However, because of the anonymity built in the application, some users are misusing it as a cyber bullying platform. ZainAlabdin Tawfiq, the founder of Sarahah in an exclusive with India Today Group said that in some exceptional instances if a user doesn’t follow the app guidelines, his/her identity could be revealed. Hence, the application should be used diligently.

5 Sarahah is designed in a way that allows users to send constructive messages. Tawfiq believed that there was a need for constructive feedback in his workplace and that is when he thought of creating something like Sarahah. He thought that keeping this feedback anonymous for the employees a good option. However, like Oscar Wild once said, “Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask and he will tell you the truth.” This phrase fits perfectly when it comes to Sarahah. Most people are registering with the app to send unsavoury and offensive messages to people instead of “constructive feedback”.

6 The application has raised concerns among parents and teachers. A review that was posted on Google Play reads, “My 13-year-old sister uses this and she got a death threat aimed at our 2-year-old brother.” After such incidents took place, many parents have reported that the app and said that this is “the newest platform for cyber bullying”.
Sarahah is still in developing stage and comes with a lot of security concerns. There is no way to directly block a user on Sarahah. However, if a user receives an offensive message on Sarahah, they can simply long press on the message and block it. After which the user will not receive any message from the particular sender.

7 Several people worry about their identity being revealed. There are a few reports circulating on the web that Sarahah details will be revealed. However, commenting on the same, Sarahah founder said that the app comes with “strict privacy policy” and no information will be revealed without the users consent. He further said, “We will never reveal the identity of the sender unless we get his consent to do so. You can see also the terms and conditions of privacy policy regarding disclosure of information about revealing the identity in certain circumstances where there is a violation.” But if a user follows the rules and regulations of the app his/her identify and information will be completely safe and will not be revealed.
