A week after the release of its flagship iOS 14.5 update for the iPhone, Apple is releasing a new update called 14.5.1. The latter fixes bugs, especially in application tracking transparency, but also fixes security vulnerabilities.
The update was released on April 26, 2021 iOS 14.5 brings a lot of new features.
One of these is application tracking transparency (ATT), which gives us the ability to choose whether or not an app can track our activities with the intention of showing targeted ads.
Only here, I know a few hiccups since this function was enabled. Not all apps ask for our permission when we open them.
This is believed to be due to a bug that Apple fixed with its latest iOS 14.5.1 update.
It can be read in the description of the update.
The problem with the transparency of app tracking is that it prevents some users who have previously disabled “Allow app tracking” from receiving requests from apps after re-enabling the option.
Is a major security breach closed?
In addition to ATT, the iOS 14.5.1 update also fixes security vulnerabilities. It would be a big mistake to trust the details displayed in the update once again.
iOS 14.5.1 includes bug fixes, provides significant security updates and is recommended for all users.
Apple warns that the iOS 14.5.1 update is important when it comes to security for our iPhone.
Apple does not dare to go into details of these notorious flaws.
This error persisted for a long time and was expected to close in early March 2021.
IPhones and iPads aside, Macs and Apple watches also deserve an update to fix this bug.
This is a MacOS 11.3.1 and WatchOS 7.4.1 update.
