The new update is already available for download for compatible iPhones and iPads and introduces several functional innovations. It is important to remember that iOS 14 was released in September 2020 and only 5 months later 80% of people had already installed the update. We know, however, that Apple is used to releasing the most important one halfway between the launch of the previous and future version. With MisterGadget.Tech let's find out what's new about the new update.
I unlock it with the cover
One of the most substantial updates of the latest version of the Apple operating system introduces a function that is necessary for everyone, given the historical period we are experiencing: the possibility of unlocking your smartphone by wearing the mask. However, you must already have an Apple Watch and your iPhone is connected to it. This is to ensure that he is indeed the owner of the smartphone. Also, when your iPhone moves away from the Apple Watch, your phone will automatically lock. Another novelty is the message that arrives on your smartwatch to inform you that the unlocking procedure has been successfully completed.
217 new emojis
With the new iOS 14.5 update, it will be possible to choose different complexions for each subject in all the variations of the emoji of the couple who sends a kiss and the couple with the heart emoji. There will be new options with additional facial expressions, hearts and bearded emojis. They will therefore be emojis based on inclusiveness, on integration and will also promote the vaccination campaign. In fact, the syringe emoji will also be different in which the red color that refers to blood will no longer be present, but the different color in order to bring the image closer to the idea of a vaccine.
App Tracking Transparency
Among the things that will be changed are also the safety functions. The features of App Tracking Transparency are very important. From now on, in Settings, users will be able to see which apps have requested permission to track data and make changes. Additionally, an in-app tracking transparency feature, if enabled, will require apps to obtain user permission before tracking their data.
Thanks to the new iOS 14.5 update, you can now ask Siri to call your emergency contacts. A simple sentence will suffice: “Siri, call my emergency contacts” and the most famous voice assistant ever will initiate a call to the people indicated as such in Settings. Another thing that can be changed will be his voice. The user, in fact, can choose whether to leave the female one as the default or opt for different items. In addition, the text-to-speech in Italian arrives, which makes Siri's voice more realistic.
For those who love gaming with the new update, the list of pads and controllers for iOS will be extended by introducing the possibility of using those for PS5 and Xbox Series X / S.
Further news: Podcasts and Reminders
There is more news that we will see with the iOS 14.5 update. Podcasts will have a new design and different opportunities to bookmark a single episode or synchronize the progress of the playback between different devices. As for Promemoria, on the other hand, it will be possible to print the to-do lists individually and you can also sort the individual notes in the order that suits you best. Now that you know what's new in iOS 14.5, the only thing to do is download it.
