In Canvas Student 6.9, graded assignments display assignment score statistics, if enabled in the course. Additionally, submissions with annotations are indicated in the submission.
As of 2020-09-28, students can use the app to generate a QR code to link to an observer.
Canvas iOS app version updates are distributed in a phased rollout, which distributes the update to all users enrolled in automatic updates over time. The features in these notes may not immediately be available, but iOS users can manually update the app at any time in the iTunes Store. The Canvas Student iOS App requires iOS 13.0 or later.
If score statistics are visible in a course, students can view score statistics below their grade in the Assignment Details page. This change allows students to view score statistics in the app as well as the browser view.
Score Statistics in the Assignment Details Page
When a submission includes annotation comments, an icon displays in the submission. This change notifies students that a comment has been made within an annotation. Students can tap the icon to view the associated comments, then tap the Comments button.

QR Code Observer Pairing
In the Settings page, students can open the Pair with Observer link and create a pairing code for an observer. When the code is scanned, a parent can link to the student's account in the Canvas Parent App (version 3.3) and create an account if needed. This pairing must be done from the Student app to the Parent app. This code is only valid for 10 minutes, after which a new code must be created.
