New iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch and Apple TV updates are coming soon. Apple revealed in an announcement on Tuesday that the next versions of all its operating systems-iOS 14.5, iPadOS 14.5, macOS 11.3, watchOS 7.4 and tvOS 14.5- will be launched next week. There is no exact release date for any of them, but to be honest, there is no long wait. Apple has not provided us with the details of expectations, although we do know something about it due to the ongoing Beta program.
With iOS 14.5 and watchOS 7.4, iPhone owners will be able to unlock their phones with a paired Apple Watch. For many people during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, this is a particularly useful feature because you don’t need to take off your mask to unlock your iPhone.
Another big idea is not to track the feature, it will force the application to ask the user if they want to track them. This will be available in all new Apple software updates.
In addition, iOS 14.5, iPadOS 14.5, macOS 11.3, watchOS 7.4 and tvOS 14.5 will bring an improved Apple Podcasts application, which supports Podcast channels, and an updated Reminders application, with only minor changes.
iOS 14.5, iPadOS 14.5, macOS 11.3 and tvOS 14.5 will also include support for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S/X controllers. At the Apple event, the Cupertino giant talked about how immersive the game is on the upcoming iPad Pro with M1 chip and next-generation controller support (including haptics).
In addition, iOS 14.5, iPadOS 14.5 and macOS 11.3 are also expected to provide more than 200 new emoji and emoji search functions. Apple Fitness+ will now support AirPlay 2 on iOS 14.5, iPadOS 14.5 and watchOS 7.4. Finally, our Apple Pencil Scribble on iPad OS 14.5 supports five new languages.
With tvOS 14.5, Apple TV owners will be able to calibrate the color balance of their TV monitors using a new feature called “Adjust Color Balance.” Of course, you also need one of the latest iPhone models running on the latest iOS 14.5 update.
iOS 14.5, iPadOS 14.5, macOS 11.3, watchOS 7.4 and tvOS 14.5 will start rolling out next week.
