Apple releasing iOS 13.4 and watchOS 6.2 GM to developers

Apple today is releasing the GM seed of iOS 13.4, iPadOS 13.4, and watchOS 6.2 to developers. These updates come after a long period of beta testing. iOS 13.4 includes new features like iCloud Drive folder sharing, new Memoji stickers, advanced mouse support for iPad, and much more.

Apple is also releasing macOS Catalina 10.15.4 beta 6 and tvOS 13.4 GM to developers.

One of the major changes of iOS 13.4 (and also iPadOS 13.4) is the advanced mouse support, a feature that was announced today by Apple along with the new iPad Pro and the Magic Keyboard. With the new update, trackpad support for iPad becomes a system-level feature. The cursor appears as a floating circle that can highlight elements in the user interface, press buttons and assist with text selection.

iOS 13.4 also makes a change to the Mail app by reverting the toolbar design introduced in iOS 13. The update includes support for iCloud Drive folder sharing, which allows you to share a folder once and have everyone be able to see the contents of that folder as they change.

There are also new Memoji Stickers, universal App Store purchases across Apple platforms, and various bug fixes and enhancements.

As for watchOS 6.2, it enables the ECG app and Irregular heart rhythm notification in Chile, New Zealand, and Turkey. Users will also be able to make in-app purchases with Apple Watch for the first time.
