Apple's iOS 14.7 and iPadOS 14.7 software has gained a new feature that allows you to set timers on your HomePod speaker from within the Home app on your iPhone, iPad and Mac.
Apple has not yet released iOS 14.6 to the public quite yet, but that's not stopping the company from moving right along with the next update anyway.
Apple is rolling out a fix for a weird bug in iOS 14.5 and iPadOS 14.5 where some users are seeing a greyed out toggle in Settings for the new App Tracking Transparency (ATT) feature.
Apple is going to release iOS 14.6 and iPadOS 14.6 to the public very soon. Ahead of that, though, the final release candidate has been seeded to developers.
Apple is moving right along, preparing its major platforms for the next update. Today, a new beta seed is available to developers.
Apple launched the latest major update to iOS 14 in late April. Now, the company is issuing another update, this one focused on one aspect of the latest software.
One of the things offered on a Mac that isn’t currently available on the iPhone or iPad out of the box is Guest Mode. This feature allows friends or strangers to log into your device using a separate user account, which means they can take care of what they need to without accessing any of your account’s private and personal files and information.
Many iPhone and iPad users would enjoy having a feature like this on their mobile devices for the sake of allowing friends and family members to use said devices without exposing their own personal information. Sadly, Apple hasn’t indicated any intention of offering such a feature, and that’s where having a jailbroken handset comes in handy.
Apple seeded the first developer beta of iOS 14.6 even before the company released iOS 14.5 to the public. But now that that major update is out there, the company is pushing ahead with the next one.
On April 26, 2021, Apple released the OS 14.5 update for the iPhone and iPod touch, the iPadOS 14.5 software for the iPad and tvOS 14.5 one for the Apple TV 4K and Apple TV HD. With these software updates came a global toggle allowing users to tell all apps not to be tracked by default, bypassing the new privacy permission prompt altogether. Now, some people have experienced issues attempting to turn on the feature, with the “Allow Apps to Request to Track“ toggle grayed out in Settings. Here's why that's happening and what you can do about it.
Ad executives are saying that Apple's new App Tracking Transparency rules in iOS 14.5 could be beneficial to ad agencies and other clients that use Apple's own advertising platform.
The App Tracking Transparency privacy feature in iOS 14.5, iPadOS 14.5 and tvOS 14.5 requires iPhone, iPad and Apple TV apps to obtain explicit consent from you before tracking you.
While Apple's YouTube channel is primarily a lot of marketing for products and such, sometimes the company takes the time to talk about something else. Like a feature baked into the latest update to iOS 14, for instance.
