release iPhone with mask on face

Maybe more should have come, but the option we can use is still welcome release iPhone when we have a face mask. With the help Apple Watch this is possible with iOS 14.5. The condition is to have a iPhone with the latest version of iOS and a Apple Watch 3 (or newer model) with Watch 7.4. In a future article we will show you exactly how unlocking works iPhone cu Apple Watch si ce minusuri are.

So this feature will not work if you do not have and Apple Watch.

ATT (App Tracking Transparency) to increase user privacy

ATT is a cornerstone for Facebook and other big players in the online advertising market. In short, services like Facebook. Twitter, Instagram, etc., collected information about users' preferences through applications and websites. This data collected on the basis of an identifier for each user (IDFA) "Identifier for Advertising" could be used to deliver personalized ads to the user. For example, if you access an article about "evening dresses" on Facebook, you will still receive advertisements for "evening dresses" on several applications. Google works the same way. If you search for a product or service on Google. Ads on that product / service will also appear on YouTube and other sites that are on Google's advertising network.

ATT introduced by Apple, will make every application that uses this system for tracking user behavior to provide more transparency. For example, the application Facebook will ask users if they allow tracking their activity on other applications / websites of other companies.

"Allow Facebook to track your activity across other companies apps and websites?"

Emoji - burning heart, bandaged heart and others

iOS 14.5 brought on iPhone and a new set of emoji. In addition to "Heart on Fire", "Mending Heart" were added some new faces and many combinations of "pigment" for couples. Apple militates a lot on equality and unity.

AirTag si Find My

Apple added support for new device location options AirTag. Precision Finding with visual, sound and haptic response, using Ultra Wideband of the U1 chip present on iPhone 11 si iPhone 12. also AirTag the network can be found used "Find My"But as I said before in this article, it is needed as in the radius AirTag to enter a iPhone 11 or iPhone 12 to be able to be located.
"Lost Mode" will send notification when AirTag has been found and the user can enter a phone number to contact. A very useful option when someone else finds the device.

Siri - New voices for the smart assistant of Apple 

It's as if this thing with variety and equality risks falling into embarrassment. Siri will no longer have the default female voice, and the voices from Siri Students' Testimonials are no longer passed with "female"And"male“. They are simply switched to “Voice 1”… “Voice 4”.

In addition to the above, iOS 14.5 has also brought new improvements in applications:
