In the early hours of February 2nd, Apple released the iOS 14.5 beta system, which is a closed beta, not an official version.
iOS 14.5 beta update content:
Apple Watch supports unlocking iPhone
Support new wireless game controller
iPhone12 series supports 5G dual SIM mode
Apple Fitness adds AirPlay2 support
Multi-user support for Apple card
Siri new: call emergency function
Apple Watch supports unlocking iPhone:
When you turn on the Settings-Face ID and Password-Apple Watch option, when you wear a mask to unlock and wear your Apple Watch, you can unlock your iPhone.
While the Apple Watch is in the unlocked state, you can directly unlock it when you look at the phone as usual. After unlocking, you will get tactile feedback on your wrist to let you know that the unlocking is successful and improve the face id to unlock.
Support new wireless game controllers:
In iOS 14.5, Apple added support for the latest game controllers on the market, including: Sony’s PlayStation5 dual-sensing controller and Microsoft’s Xbox series X controller.
iPhone12 series supports 5G dual SIM mode:
In the iOS 14.5 system, the iPhone12 series models have launched global support for 5G dual SIM mode, which probably means physical SIM card + virtual eSIM card. Such devices can support 5G dual SIM, and we have already implemented dual SIM in mainland China.
Apple Fitness added AirPlay2 support:
In the iOS 14.5 system, Apple Fitness subscribers can support the exercise function with compatible AirPlay 2 smart TVs.
Multi-user support for Apple card:
In iOS 14.5, Apple allows multiple people to use the same Apple card account, which will allow family members to share a card.
Siri added emergency call function:
In the iOS 14.5 system, allowing Siri to call the emergency service to the “Hey, Siri, call emergency” command, roughly means that when you call out Siri, you can directly say “Call emergency function”.
The above is the iOS 14.5 beta update content, which is not the most important point of this article. The focus is on the iOS 14.5 beta system. The checkra1n jailbreak is blocked again. Currently, the checkra1n jailbreak tool cannot be used to jailbreak iOS 14.5.
This time you can’t automatically enter the recovery mode, and after you manually enter the recovery mode to boot, the device still cannot display the checkra1n icon.
Of course! It’s not that there is no hope, after all, the hardware bug is still there, and this time Apple changed the relevant data and caused the boot failure, and can only wait for the jailbreak developer to update and fix it again.
