The first was released yesterday beta version of iOS 14.5 for developers, which brings a number of interesting features. Except support 5G in Dual-SIM mode on iPhone 12, this version offers other features. For example, allows them users to unlock their iPhones via Face ID even when wearing a mask, as long as they wear an Apple Watch.
Since the Apple Watch is already unlocked, the users they just have to look at their iPhone as usual (with the mask) and after that, will receive a notification from the watch informing them that the unlock was successful. As it turns out, Face ID is allowed to unlock the iPhone, although not all features are visible, because the nearby Apple Watch has already been certified. In the same way, you will also be able to lock it phone you from Apple Watch. However, it is worth noting that all other actions that can be unlocked via Face ID (eg approving a purchase App Store) can not be settled this way.
In recent months, most people around the world have been forced to wear their masks to protect themselves from COVID-19:. Therefore, the Apple had been trying since last May to help people using Face ID, leading them faster to the password entry screen access when their faces did not look good. In theory it was a good idea, but in practice it was not very convenient. The users reported that they often had to wait long enough for it to decide iOS what he had to do.
Other features of iOS 14.5
In addition to improved Face ID and 5G support in Dual-SIM mode, iOS 14.5 also provides support for Xbox Series S / X and PlayStation 5 controllers on iPhone and iPad.
But most importantly, this beta will be the first to will fully implement the transparency measures on monitoring users from applications. These measures require application developers to explicitly seek the consent of users prior to the collection of Identification for Advertisers for advertising and other purposes.
