Apple Seeds First Betas of iOS 13.2 and iPadOS 13.2 to Developers With Deep Fusion for iPhone 11 and 11 Pro [Update: Public Beta Available]

Apple today released the first betas of upcoming iOS and iPadOS 13.2 updates to developers, just a week after the release of iOS 13.1 and two weeks after the iOS 13 update first debuted.

iOS and ‌iPadOS‌ 13.2 can be downloaded through the Apple Developer Center or over the air after the proper developer profile has been installed.


As announced yesterday, the iOS 13.2 update introduces Deep Fusion for the cameras in the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro models. Deep Fusion is a new image processing system that uses the A13 Bionic and the Neural Engine. Deep Fusion takes advantage of machine learning techniques to do pixel-by-pixel processing of photos, optimizing for texture, details, and noise in each part of the image.

The feature is aimed at improving indoor photos and photos taken in medium lighting, and it's a feature that will automatically activate based on the lens being used and the light level in the room.

Today's update also reintroduces the Announce with Siri feature for Messages, brings new Privacy controls for Apple's upcoming research app, and it even leaked an upcoming AirPods design. For a list of everything new in iOS 13.2, make sure to check out our article outlining the new features.

Update: Apple has also seeded the iOS and ‌iPadOS‌ 13.2 betas to its public beta testing group.

Almost Everyone: "OMG, I can't wait to see Deep Fusion"
Me (and perhaps other developers): "Man, I hope I don't see my app Deeply F*cked"

Right now i do not have second Pro (i will have in 30 minutes so i can compare) but this was shot on iOS13.2 beta Night Mode with back light - and this is crazy - see there is no noise _at all_ - see in details - lower right corner on the fabric. Again - i will try to shoot same photo on iOS13.1.2 to see if that's just placebo...

Ah, the actual 13.0 beta, with features promised in September.

The so-called 13.0 and 13.1 felt like iOS 11 all over again.

Didn’t Apple say deep fusion would be coming later?

Anyway I hope this update fixes auto correct which is on drugs right now.

I think we should all be happy that Apple is working on improving iOS and is providing so many updates. Compare that to the Android update situation..

Of course I must also say that iOS 13 came out pretty buggy, but after 13.1 the system became very stable and snappy.

I am curious to test the Fusion feature, but I don't want to install a beta on my iPhone.

So, I tried the Deep Fusion Sweater shot and it came out really quite nicely. Only thing is, when trying to review the shot, the space to view the photo is now extremely small and you can only see a small amount of the shot, but you can move it around. The only way to stop this is to reopen the App. Very weird.
