The guys from Cupertino launched iOS 12.5 in mid-December, an update so that older iPhones (before the iPhone 6s) could make use of the new notification system for exposure to the coronavirus that both Google and Apple they had introduced months ago in their operating systems.
It is striking that Apple took so long to launch this update for older iPhone models, since it has always been characterized by taking maximum care of this aspect. Google, added this system of exposure notifications in all Android together through an update of Google services, so for months, It is available in terminals managed by Android 6 onwards.
Specifically, the iPhone and iPad models that this new update can install are:
- iPad Air
- iPad mini 2
- iPad mini 3
- iPhone 5s
- iPhone 6
- iPhone 6 Plus
- iPod touch 6th generation.
In the release notes, Apple states that it has fixed an issue where exposure notifications incorrectly displayed the language of the registration profile.
Are exposure notifications used?
In Spain the use of the application is practically nil. And not because it doesn’t work, but because there are many users who, when testing positive for coronavirus, had to enter a code, a code that took days to get, as long as they got it.
To that, we have to add the typical conspiracy theories in which it is stated that through the application the government of the day could know at all times where we are.
To these theories, we have to add that the government has not done any information campaign on the operation of the application and incidentally, deny these theories. A missed opportunity, at least in Spain.
