This new exposure notification API is only for health-related apps. It allows the users to participate in the exposure notifications. However, if the users do not want to participate in the exposure notifications they can use the settings app to opt-out and not participate. 

Besides providing the exposure notification it also makes it easy to unlock the iOS devices. With this new update, the users can also unlock their iPhone with a passcode wearing a mask. Also, with this update, the passcode pops up more quickly when it recognizes that the users are wearing a mask. The user can then swipe upward to enter the code. There are also several other updates with this new beta release.
