Apple officially pushed the new version of iOS 14.5 system update,
At the same time, if the user wears an Apple Watch, iOS14.5 can also unlock the iPhone through the Apple Watch when a matching mask is added, which solves the current trouble of wearing a mask to accept a mobile phone.
Finally, iOS 14.5 also has adjustments to Siri, Apple Maps, Apple News and Podcast applications, and other more small features.
Another change in the new version of the iOS 14.5 operating system is that privacy collection and disclosure will be mandatory for software developers to implement behavior, which is bound to change the rules of the game in the current industry. It means a lot to Apple.
This time, it is a one-time practice to require App vendors to collect and disclose users’ privacy.
In the future, when users install software, if the software collects the privacy of a certain iOS device user’s Internet activities by “across multiple company software and websites”, they must first obtain the user’s consent. Some experts in the Internet advertising industry said that this warning message popped up by Apple’s iOS system will prompt many users to refuse to provide permission.

When trying to use Face ID while wearing a mask, you can unlock iPhone X and later models through Apple Watch Series 3 and later models
