If you’re an iPhone 14, iPhone 13, iPhone 12 or any other currently Apple supported iPhone, then you have a feature embedded in your device that can potentially protect you from a Covid-19 exposure. (HT Tech)

The feature is called ‘Exposure Notification’ and you can enable it anywhere in the world. (Pexels)

It works by keeping track of all devices nearby which have the same feature turned on and matching that list against people associated with positive COVID-19 cases. (Pexels)

You will get an exposure notification if you come across another person with a positive case or a case has been found in your locality. The notification will also nudge you to get a Covid test done. (Pexels)
