iOS 14.5 also allowed users to unlock the iPhone with Face ID even while wearing a mask, a very useful feature in the Covid-19 epidemic. To use this feature, however, you need an Apple Watch running watchOS 7.4.
To activate, go to Settings> Face ID and Passcode, select “Unlock with Apple Watch”. You can then unlock your iPhone while wearing your Apple Watch, without having to face ID face verification, just within 1m. When the iPhone is unlocked, the Apple Watch will also vibrate and show a notification to let users know. Besides, you can also lock the iPhone screen with Apple Watch.

Apple also updated new emoji icons in iOS 14.5, updated the Podcast app, support for the newly released AirTags accessory, support for PS5 / Xbox Series X controllers, a new battery calibration tool for the iPhone, and a host of other things. other bug fixes.
