Highlights

  • iOS 13.4 comes with new Memoji stickers.
  • iPadOS 13.4 comes with support for trackpad.
  • New improvements have also been added to iCloud sharing.

After a long wait, Apple finally rolled out iOS 13.4 and iPadOS 13.4 globally. The latest software versions for iPhone and iPad bring new Memoji stickers, trackpad support, iCloud folder sharing, and other granular improvements under the hood. The iPadOS 13.4, particularly, focuses on the latest iPad Pro lineup that has received support for trackpad, pushing Apple's ambitious tablets closer to being a laptop replacement once again. The iPad Pro 2020 was launched recently with a new Magic Keyboard that has a trackpad.

The iOS 13.4 brings a host of new features, enhancements to existing features, and minor bug fixes. There are new Memoji stickers, including Smiling Face with Hearts, Hands Pressed Together, and Party Face. The iCloud Drive folder sharing has been enabled from the Files app, along with permission controls to limit access to shared files. The Mail app has also been updated to add features that include Always-visible controls to delete, move, reply to, or compose a message in conversation view. The Apple Arcade has received the newly-introduced Universal Purchase for iOS, iPadOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS platforms.

The trackpad support given as a part of the iPadOS 13.4 allows actions such as scrolling, swiping between app spaces, navigate to Home, access App Switcher, zoom in or out, secondary click. It will be available on iPad Pro 12.9-inch (3rd-generation or later) and iPad Pro 11-inch (1st-generation or later). Of course, the customers need to buy the Magic Keyboard for the eligible iPad models to be able to use the trackpad. The trackpad works exactly like the one on MacBook, minimising the gap further between the two product lines. The iPadOS 13.4 also has new features for Magic Mouse and Magic Mouse 2, along with Bluetooth and USB Mouse support.

The iOS 13.4 is available for iPhone 6S and higher models while the iPadOS 13.4 is rolling out on iPad Pro 1st-generation and higher, iPad Pro (9.7-inch and 10.5-inch), iPad 5th-generation and above, iPad mini 4 and higher, and iPad Air 2, iPad Air 3rd-generation.
