The iOS 14.5 update will be very special for Apple iPhone users. With the release of the app tracking transparency feature, by default, third-party apps are not allowed to track iPhone users in order to send them online advertisements. Users who wish to continue receiving these ads can opt-in to allow these apps to continue to track them. According to ArsTechnica, Apple has consistently rejected new application submissions that track users through mobile phone fingerprint scanners.
iPhone and iPad users are eagerly looking forward to the update to iOS and iPadOS 1
This strongly indicates that with the introduction of some new hardware including the new iPad Pro (2021) series, the release of iOS 14.5 is imminent. A copy of Apple’s letter to the developer was rejected, and the developer’s application submission was rejected. Apple’s letter cites Guide 5.1.2-Law-Privacy-Data Use and Sharing, “We found in the comments that your application collects user and device information and creates a unique identifier for the user’s device. This method violates The Apple Developer Program license agreement is not applicable to the App Store.”
In other words, the reason for app rejection is the same as the reason after the app tracking transparency feature takes effect. From this perspective, I believe that iOS 14.5 and some new hardware are only a few days away from the launch, which really makes sense. Perhaps the most exciting feature of iOS 14.5 is the feature that allows users to unlock the iPhone, even if the mask prevents Face ID from verifying the user’s identity.
Since the pandemic started to wreak havoc on people in all states, Apple has asked users to click on their password to unlock their iPhone. But this is not always easy for the time being, you will eventually scramble or even lose your phone. However, once iOS 14.5 is installed, iPhone users with an unlocked Apple Watch can use the timepiece to verify their identity and automatically unlock the phone. This is a shortcut that many iPhone owners are eager to see.
The iOS 14.5 update will include voice adjustments for Siri, and in this way more than 200 new emojis will be added to the iPhone. In addition, iOS 14.5 adds support for PlayStation 5 controller and Xbox Series X/S controller. After installing iOS 14.5 on the iPhone, it will ask the user to select the default voice for Siri. There are four variants in the United States:
Speech 1-a soft male pronunciation
Voice 2-Energetic, confident female voice
Voice 3 is similar to Voice 2, but it sounds very masculine,
Finally, Voice 4, which sounds like the default Siri voice you know and love.
You can test these options by clicking on the options in the following tweets:
It is expected that some new hardware will be released soon. iPad Pro (2021) is expected to be equipped with 12.9-inch and 11-inch displays. We can see that Apple uses mini-LED technology on the screen to help the device provide a clearer image. Whether the new tablet supports 5G connectivity is still unknown, but it is expected to be equipped with the new 5nm chip A14X Bionic, which is as powerful as Apple’s new M1 chip designed for the Mac series. M1 has 16 billion transistors, making it powerful and energy efficient.
The iOS 14.5 update and the new iPad Pro may arrive at any time starting at the beginning of next week, so please contact us frequently. The development of iPad in 2020 is very strong, and we can see that this trend will continue from 2021 to 2022. Perhaps older iPad models may also receive similar updates to iPadOS 14.5.
