Apple has released iOS 14.5.1, a week after the release of iOS 14.5. The update fixes the new privacy system that was preventing some iPhone users from adjusting the App Tracking Transparency settings. Apple also patched two WebKit vulnerabilities in this release that may have been actively exploited.
This update fixes an issue with App Tracking Transparency where some users who previously disabled Allow Apps to Request to Track in Settings may not receive prompts from apps after re-enabling it. This update also provides important security updates and is recommended for all users.
Apple rolled out iOS 14.5 last week, introducing new features such as App Tracking Transparency, Unlock with Apple Watch, Siri improvements, new emojis, support for AirTag, and more.
iOS 14.5.1 can be updated on iPhone 6s and later, iPad Pro (all models), iPad Air 2 and later, iPad 5th generation and later, iPad mini 4 and later, and iPod touch (7th generation). You can update by opening the Settings app on your device, tap on General, and then on Software Update. Apple also released iPadOS 14.5.1 alongside.
