iOS 14.5 also confers App Tracking Transparency on an iPhone. It may result in new dialog boxes with buttons that allow the user to turn off an app's ability to track the user's habits when it comes to browsing and even using different apps.
AirTag activation, pairing and use is also switched on with these new updates. Therefore, users should be able to re-name, manage, and hunt down their new little smart-tracking pucks on-screen. This latest Apple software may also make iPhones or iPads more compatible with PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S controllers.
