Today Apple launched iOS 13.7, only after 1 beta update. The new update allows users to make use of its COVID19 exposure notification API without the need for an app, as The Verge reports:

Apple and Google are launching a new auto-generated software framework to help states deploy their own contact tracing apps. Developed as an extension of the earlier exposure notification framework, the new system allows public health authorities to avoid the broader development work of launching a standalone app, simply configuring the basic framework to their state’s needs. Existing applications won’t be affected by the new framework, and adopting the framework won’t prevent states from launching more involved apps in the future.
