- Continuing with Siri and as promised by Apple, there is now the possibility to choose if we want to participate in the Siri improvement program as well as to erase the data of our history in case of doing it. This change is the result of the controversy by the Siri improvement program that jumped last summer.

Deep Fusion: a substantial photographic improvement for the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro
So far, we have seen the improvements common to all iPhone compatible with iOS 13. The iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max have an additional novelty in iOS 13.2 that promises a substantial improvement in the photographs. It's about Deep Fusion, a new way of processing the photographs according to Phil Schiller, SVP of Apple Marketing, is "a crazy science of computer photography."
Leaving the terms aside marketinians, the truth is that Deep Fusion is an important change. With iOS 13.2, iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro can make use of this function automatically based on the level of light you are using. As Apple shared several media outlets a few weeks ago, it works as follows:
- The angular lens uses the Smart HDR for good and medium illumination situations. Deep Fusion enter situations of medium and low brightness and Night Mode for low light scenes.
- The telephoto lens used in its Deep Fusion, where the Smart HDR only act in scenes with lots of light.
- The ultra wide angle lens always uses Smart HDR because it does not support Deep Fusion or Night Mode.
Apple indicates that Deep Fusion is completely transparent to the user. There is no button on the camera that indicates when it is working as it happens with Night Mode, it does not appear on the camera roll or in the image EXIF ??data. It is the camera that decides and the user avoids more complications when taking the photo.
This function is a leap forward in photographs with more complex luminosity, without reaching the situations in which Night Mode highlights. As soon as iOS 13.2 is installed on the latest generation iPhone, the effects of Deep Fusion will begin to be seen.
