Recently, a new beta version of iOS 13.4 has reached the devices registered in the beta developer software program that the company has been maintaining for a few years. This new compilation, which It is already the third available of this next update, it includes a series of changes and corrections that will allow it to be polished its operation for its launch. However, what we did not expect is that it could bring even more news.
As we met with the first beta compilation of iOS 13.4, this version brings with it features like iCloud Drive shared folders, or the return of the previous toolbar of the Mail app. Even, it is also possible that it presents the arrival of CarKey, a feature that will allow us to open our vehicles from the Wallet app. And now we have known that Apple may be preparing another really important novelty for the company's devices.
Specifically, it has been discovered in the latest beta compilation of iOS 13.4 the existence of a feature called "OS Recovery", whose interface reminds us that we can find to operate devices such as AirPods or HomePod. According to information from 9to5Mac, this function may allow us to recover our devices in the future without connecting them to a PC or Mac. It can even be used to recover other devices via cable connection with Lightning or USB-C.
At first, this novelty may seem absurd, perhaps unnecessary for many users. However, it is important to note that the DFU recovery mode still requiring iTunes by now for its operation, which makes it useless if we don't have a computer nearby.
On the other hand, devices such as Apple Watch or HomePod do not have recovery systems accessible to users, which means that every time they need this operation it is necessary to go to the technical service, since cannot be wired to a computer or to another device. A solution like this could be perfect for these cases, thus preventing users from having to go to support.

In fact, so far it has only been possible to access what appears to be a “placeholder” of its interface. Ace, There is still the possibility that we will never see it on our devices, or from being delayed for an update like iOS 14.
