The official version of Apple’s iOS 14.5 is here: what new features are there?

Posted by

Apple officially pushed the new version of iOS 14.5 system update, iOS 14.5 brings a lot of new features, it will also be the minimum software version required for the recently released AirTag tracking device. This means that Apple’s new privacy policy has come into effect. According to the new rules, apps need to seek the authorization of iPhone users before they can track their online behavior data using the phone.

At the same time, if the user wears an Apple Watch, iOS 14.5 also adds a new matching mask to unlock the iPhone through the Apple Watch, which solves the current difficulty of wearing a mask to accept the phone.

Finally, iOS 14.5 also brings tweaks to Siri, Apple Maps, Apple News and Podcasts apps, and many more small features.

Another change in the new version of the iOS 14.5 operating system is that privacy collection and disclosure will be a mandatory behavior for software developers, which is bound to change the rules of the game in the current industry. It means a lot to Apple.

This time, requiring app manufacturers to collect and disclose users’ privacy is a one-time practice. In the future, when users install software, if the software collects the privacy of an iOS device user’s online activities by “crossing multiple company software and websites”, the user must first obtain the user’s consent. Some experts in the Internet advertising industry say the warning message popped up on Apple’s iOS system will prompt many users to refuse permission.

All iOS 14.5 updates are as follows:

Unlock iPhone with Apple Watch

Apple Watch Series 3 and later can be used to unlock iPhone X and later when trying to use Face ID while wearing a mask
