iOS and iPadOS 14.5 Arrive with Apple Watch iPhone Unlock Lock and More
First of all, the software now allows you to unlock your iPhone with a nearby Apple Watch with the new watchOS 7.4. This is convenient for people who wear a mask during the COVID-19 pandemic.
This feature is disabled by default. But you can enable it by going to Settings> Face ID & Passcode and then enabling Unlock with Apple Watch.
When using Siri, you can now select a favorite music service like Spotify to play music.
Emoji fans can now enjoy over 200 new options like Heart on Fire and many more. You can see all the additions here.
Another substantial change is a new application tracking transparency feature. Apps will need user permission to track them using the device’s unique identifier.
Other additions include the ability for users to report crashes, hazards, and speed cameras in Apple Maps, the ability to use AirPlay 2 to send a workout to a compatible TV, and support for the Xbox Series X controller and PlayStation 5 DualSense.
