Apple introduced a bunch of new features and improvements with the release of iOS 14.5. The tvOS 14.5 update also brought a cool new feature to the Apple TV, which allowed users to automatically adjust the TVs color balance using their iPhone. Apple claims that the feature will enhance the color reproduction on most TVs. It's not easy adjusting the color balance on a TV, specially since the settings are hidden away in menus.
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.
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.
Along with releasing the latest updates for iOS 14, iPadOS 14, and watchOS 7, Apple has also released the next major update to macOS 11 and tvOS 14.
Apple plans to release its new iOS 14.5, iPadOS 14.5 and tvOS 14.5 software updates today around 10am PT / 1pm ET, bringing new features to iPhone, iPad and Apple TV customers.
Not too long ago, Apple released iOS 14.4 and iPadOS 14.4 to the public. But the train to the next software update is already on the move.
