In addition to the various devices advertised by Apple at last Tuesday’s event (20), the company quickly confirmed the arrival of a new operating system update.
According to the company, iOS 14.5 will be officially released for download on compatible iPhones starting next Friday, April 30th — the same date that the AirTags accessory will be officially released in the United States.
Among the additions, iOS 14.5 will finally allow the user to unlock the device from Face ID even using masks. This request from users came from last year, because of the covid-19 pandemic.
In addition Apple will finally debut the user tracking prevention feature for use in ads, which caused a big fight with several companies, such as Facebook. iOS 14.5 also brings 200 new emoji, while iOS maps now also allow warning about radars and accidents.
Personal assistant Siri has also received several additions. It is now possible to change the voice of the service, have it call 911 from an audio command, and select a new default application for certain tasks, such as Spotify for audio streaming.
