iOS 13.5 (beta 4) allows you to share medical data with rescuers

Apple yesterday released the fourth beta of iOS 13.5 introducing some minor news and a renewed user interface for the COVID-19 Exposure Logging screen which now explains how the tracking system works.

Among the changes there is also one new feature for iPhone and Apple Watch devices noticed in the past few hours by colleagues from Macrumors: starting from the latest beta, users can use their latest generation smartphone or watch for automatically share your medical information when calling for help.

Following the description used by Apple:

iPhone and Apple Watch can automatically send the information contained in your medical record to the operator who answers your call.

The recent addition for the time being it appears to be active only in the United States: in Italy the function Medical records it is present in the Health app, but can only be used to allow first responders to access the most important medical information directly from the screen lock and without necessarily having to enter the security code (more info HERE).

It remains to be seen whether the feature will be distributed to all users and across multiple countries at the time of the release of iOS 13.5 in a stable version.
