1. Improved face recognition:
There is some good news for Apple Watch owners. There is this feature, by selecting which you can use your face ID to unlock your phones even while wearing a mask! No compromises with safety here! The watch provides you with an immediate response as soon as your iPhone gets opened.
2. Customize your music app:
Apple Music is probably not your default music player now. That’s perfectly fine as you can now set your default music app to another setting. On the first occasion that you request Siri to play a song, it will list all the music apps you have installed on your device. You can then select the one you want to set as default.
3. New emoticons
There are 217 new emoticons that have now been introduced under this recent update. Emoticons are used to express emotions via texts. They must therefore consist of the entire palate of our emotions right now, right? What is a bigger emotion right now, than the joy of getting vaccinated?! Guess what?! Apple has revised the syringe emoticon and omitted out the red droplets to make the syringe look more like the one used for vaccination. This is just one of 217 more such amazing changes.
4. New voices to Siri:
As Thanos believed, all things should be balanced. Apple developers have their own take on it though. Balancing for them signifies equality, and that is why Siri no longer has a female voice set to default. There are two new voices that you can choose from according to your choice! “Perfectly balanced. As all things should be”.
5. Application permissions:
Under iOS 14.5, apps will now have to take permission from you prior to following up with information and actions. This is probably one of the most worthwhile iOS changes of the update.
