iOS 14.5 introduces several new emoji characters, including a burning heart, a patched heart, an exhaled face, a face with spiral eyes, a face in the cloud, etc.
In addition, Apple has also updated the earphone emoji to look more like AirPods Max, rather than a general-purpose earphone. The rock climbing emoji now includes a helmet.
Green screen problem fixed?
Reports indicate that the second Beta version of iOS 14.5 may fix the green screen problem that some iPhone owners have been experiencing. Some users have reported that Apple’s iPhone 12 series displays a “green screen” when the brightness is low.
In this regard, Apple said in November last year that it had received a small number of feedback on this situation and was investigating. According to MacRumors, it pointed out that for some users, the new version of the system has improvements, but some users still seem to have the problem.
The “battery pack” mentioned
In the iOS 14.5 code for optimizing the charging section, there is a vague description about using the “battery pack” to charge the iPhone. It is not clear what Apple’s so-called “battery pack” refers to because Apple’s existing battery option is a smart battery box. “In order to improve the charging efficiency and maximize the service life of the battery, the battery pack will keep the charging capacity of the mobile phone at about 90%.” The text reads.
iPad Smart Folio security
On the 8th generation iPad, the 4th generation iPad Air, the 2nd generation 11-inch iPad Pro and the 4th generation 12.9-inch iPad Pro, Apple has added a new privacy feature. Whenever Smart Folio is turned off, the built-in microphone will be muted.
This will prevent apps from accessing the microphone when the tablet is not in use, and this feature is also applicable to other MFi smartphone cases. Apple first introduced this feature in the 2020 “iPad Pro” model and expanded it to other models.
The shortcut has added a new “shortcut” operation for taking screenshots, which can be merged into various shortcuts. In addition, it also provides new operations for locking the “iPhone” orientation and switching between cellular data modes. Users can select 5G, 5G automatic and 4G network options through the “voice and data” mode operation.
A new swipe gesture has been added to Apple Music to add songs to the “Now Playing” queue or “Apple Music” library. There are new options for “Play Last” and “Show Album” when you long-press a song. In the library, the download button has been replaced by three dots. You can click on the three dots to access all the options of the song.
