Released the second beta versions of iOS and iPadOS 14.5 for developers

Apple has begun sending out the second beta of iOS and iPadOS 14.5 to developers. Public versions of the updates are expected to be released in two weeks.

Updates can be downloaded through the Apple Developer Center or over the air after installing the appropriate profile on an iPhone or iPad. This version of the software introduces several important features. Among them is the ability to unlock a smartphone using Apple Watch. This option allows the smartwatch to be used as an additional authentication method besides Face ID and password entry. For this feature to work, the iPhone must have iOS 14.5 installed.

The update also brings global 5G support in Dual-SIM mode to the iPhone 12 lineup. Previously, work with two mobile operators was limited to LTE, now both lines can connect to fifth-generation networks.

PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X controllers can be connected to iPhones or iPads with iOS and iPadOS 14.5.

Along with the update, Apple Maps introduced a crowdsourcing function similar to the one in Waze. Users will be able to report accidents, dangers and other events on the road. You can leave a notification on maps using the new “Report” button.

IOS and iPadOS 14.5 added the ability to select a music service to play using Siri. Now, for example, you can choose Spoify instead of Apple Music as your default app. All play requests to Siri will go through it without needing to be mentioned in the voice request.

Following the public launch of iOS 14.5, Apple will begin requiring developers to comply with the new privacy policy. Apps will have to ask users for permission to track their activity in apps and websites.
