Apple has finally released iOS 14.5 today makes fans of Apple’s ecosystem happy. With the update those who wear a face mask will be able to unlock their handset by wearing an unlocked Apple Watch which saves time and effort. Haptic feedback warns the user that his phone is now unlocked and bypasses Face ID. This is available for iPhone X and later and the Apple Watch Series 3 and later.

The latest iOS build also includes the App Tracking Transparency (ATT) feature, which allows users to decide if they want to be tracked by third-party apps for the purpose of receiving online ads. If a third-party app does not receive explicit approval from a user who chooses to be tracked, it will no longer be able to track where the user goes on the Internet and collects personal data. About a third of iPhone users are expected to sign up.

Siri no longer has a default voice after the update, as users can choose from more natural sound settings when configuring their device. Siri now supports Group FaceTime and helps make calls to multiple contacts, announce calls through select AirPods and Beats headphones, and, if necessary, initiate calls to emergency contacts.

Other extra features include new emoji and the ability to report an accident, road hazard or speed control via Siri to Maps on iPhone or CarPlay. Users can report that “there is a crash pending” and also report when a previous accident has been cleared. The update to iOS 14.5 brings support to the recently announced AirTags and adds a redesigned Apple News + tab with enhanced search functionality and more.

The update includes a redesigned Apple Podcasts with users capable of saving and downloading episodes along with Dual SIM support for 5G and enhancements that will lead to improved battery life and data usage. Those who subscribe to Apple Fitness + will be able to stream video and audio to AirPlay 2 enabled devices.
