Speaking to the New York Times, Tim Cook announced that the iOS 14.5 update will arrive this month. Apple’s boss also warned developers about the new Application Tracking Transparency policy.
Apple’s boss Tim Cook announced the release date of iOS 14.5 in an interview with American journalist Kara Swisher. Speaking to the New York Times, the experienced manager said the highly anticipated update will be released within a few weeks.
Judging by Tim Cook’s statements, the final version of iOS 14.5 will be available in April. With the release of the update, Apple will introduce a new policy called Application Tracking Transparency (ATT).
What will Application Monitoring Transparency do?
As part of Application Tracking Transparency, developers will have to “ask for permission” to track users. In other words, users will be able to decide whether the applications will follow them or not.
Cook advised developers to hurry with Application Tracking Transparency. Because updates of applications that do not meet this policy will be rejected and will not be published in the App Store. As a result, developers need to get their applications overhauled to meet ATT requirements as soon as possible.
