Apple launched iOS 14.5. PCtipp has brought together the new features for you.
The new iOS 14.5 release was expected for February. But then another beta … and another one. Beta 7 was last released on April 7th. But now the official update is here. And after several betas, there are a lot of new features. We list:
Apple Watch to unlock – even with the mask
Apple Watch, if applicable, will act as a security code. With the help of the new feature, the iPhone can be unlocked thanks to the smartwatch, as was the case with the Macbook. This has the advantage that despite the mask being worn (currently everywhere), it is no longer necessary to enter the PIN. After identifying the unsuccessful Face ID, the watch only needs to be lifted and the phone unlocked. In the face menu Identity code The corresponding option can be activated.
Standard music service
Standard music streaming service can be set individually. If Siri is now prompted to play music, all music services will be listed and you can select one – the restriction on Apple’s special services no longer applies.
This means Siri can finally remember Spotify as the favorite. Once you consciously select Spotify, Spotify playlists will play in the future.
Spotify is also Siri-Standard
Four Siri voice options
Users are now offered four possible voice options for Siri during setup – both male and female voices. These can be selected and changed. However, this option is currently reserved for the English language.

In such cases it is. , The iPhone becomes tracked, reminiscent of the movie “Aliens” and precisely indicates where it was found. The U1 chip also provides audio, visual and tactile feedback on the iPhone. “
