Apple has recently released the stable iOS 14.4 and iPadOS 14.4 updates for its eligible devices which mainly brings new features and some bug fixes. Now the company is preparing for the upcoming version which is iOS 14.5 and iPadOS 14.5.
As per the latest news, the US tech giant has released the developers beta of iOS 14.5 and iPadOS 14.5. It can be downloaded via OTA or Apple Developer Center after making a proper profile on the device. The upcoming update for the iPhones and iPad will be subjected to bring more privacy for the users.
Apple will introduce an App Tracking Transparency privacy feature, as per the feature it will require the app developer to ask for and receive a user’s permission to access their random advertising identifier (IDFA) to track the activity of users in apps and websites.
When the users open any app that wants to access IDFA, it will provide two options as ‘Allow Tracking’ or ‘Ask App Not to Track’. Although these features are already available in iOS 14 but will get more voluntary with iOS 14.5.
The first option which is ‘Ask App Not to Track’ will now allow the app to have access to their user’s IDFA data while using the app. And if the developers refuse to follow the rule, then it may lead to the removal of the app from the App Store.
This setting for this feature can be implemented through Settings > Privacy > Tracking. As of now, there is no further information available regarding this upcoming update and we’ll keep you updated as soon as we receive something new on this.
