Apple released iOS and iPadOS 14.5 update. Chris Welch in his footage for The Verge reports that the latest update brings a new App Tracking Transparency feature. This app is reportedly meant to track the activity “across other companies’ apps and websites” for advertising purposes. You’ll get a notification every time when any app wants to collect your activity. Facebook has heavily criticized Apple over App Tracking Transparency, claiming that it presents “a false tradeoff between personalized ads and privacy.” This app can punch the whole Facebook’s ad business very hard.

Here is a video from Apple that demonstrates how the App Tracking Transparency works:

Beside, the new update has even more noticeable features. For example, if you are  an Apple Watch owner you can test out this timely new trick: you can set your iPhone to automatically unlock without requiring a Face ID match or passcode as long as Apple’s smartwatch is on your wrist. The feature is supposed to help you to enter the phone even quicker, and your facemask will not bother you every time you want to unlock the phone. However, to have the ability using that feature your smartwatch should have a watchOS 7.4 update. 

Have you ordered a ton of new emojis? iOS and iPadOS 14.5 include a list of new emojis with a key focus on inclusivity. Along with that the new update allows to spectate Apple Fitness Plus workouts on a TV with AirPlay 2. Also good news for gamers as after the update your iPhone or iPad will support the latest video game controller for the PS5 and Xbox Series X / S. Apple’s Podcasts app is getting a new design and optional subscriptions. And all iPhone 12 models will allow for 5G connectivity in dual-SIM mode in more countries. Apple provides you with the ability to choose Siri assistant voice, as formally a female-sounding voice was a default feature. Apple has a post up with all of the miscellaneous improvements and additions.

iOS and iPadOS 14.5 is rolling out to iPhone and iPad users now; you can check the “software update” section in settings to begin the update process right away.
