The issue involved one of iOS 14.5’s most anticipated (and,) features, App Tracking Transparency – the ability for users to disable ad tracking within the apps they use ( ). Unless you explicitly consent to an app, it cannot use your data for targeted advertising.
Some users encountered an issue when they turned off Allow apps to track requests in Settings, but then didn’t receive prompts from apps after re-enabling them, according to Apple’s release notes. The update also fixes two security vulnerabilities in WebKit, the release security notes said.
However, the update doesn’t seem to fix another user-reported bug in App Tracking Transparency. To turn off app tracking, usually go to Settings, select an app and tap to turn off Allow apps to track. While this switch should be turned on by default in iOS 14.5, several people on social media reported that the option was turned off without being able to change it, 9To5Mac said.
Some people reported that logging out and going back to iCloud fixed the problem. A Reddit user reported that Apple confirmed it was a known issue and the company was working on it. CNET has asked Apple for comment, and we’ll update when we hear back.
These issues aren’t a big surprise – most new updates have a few bugs to fix first, which is why some people choose to. In addition, probably not every app has been optimized for the new version yet.
