Major bug in iOS14.5 has been fixed: IDFA option on privacy tracking page can be adjusted by itself

The official version of iOS14.5 is online, with major bugs

On April 27th, Apple launched the official version of iOS 14.5. In addition to Apple Watch that can unlock iPhone, support AirTag, dual SIM5G and other functions, the most concerned is the publicly launched transparent App privacy tracking function.

However, after upgrading to iOS14.5, many users find that the privacy tracking function of the mobile phone App is abnormal: the IDFA option on the [Settings]-[Privacy]-[Tracking] page is grayed out and cannot be turned on.

Apple urgently launches iOS 14.5.1, with the intention of solving the bug

 

In the early morning of May 5th, Apple released the official version of iOS 14.5.1 for the first time in a week.

According to media reports, in the installation log of this update, Apple pointed out that it fixed the bug where the app tracking transparency option (that is, allowing App request tracking) was grayed out. The IDFA option of some foreign users has become operational after the upgrade. It can be seen that Apple intends to solve this bug through iOS 14.5.1.

However, the ASOWorld team tested and found that after the update to iOS 14.5.1, the IDFA option was still gray, and some domestic users also encountered the same situation after the update.

After more than 20 days, the “gray” problem was solved

 

After the “grayed bug” appeared, the ASOWorld team has been paying attention to follow-up developments. On the 18th of last week, the ASOWorld team tested and found that the bug that the IDFA option of the [Tracking] page was grayed out and could not be opened has been fixed. The app can normally pop up a pop-up window to ask the user “whether to allow tracking”, and the user can check the app on this page Unified management of privacy tracking permissions.

Summary

 

After the bug of iOS14.5 is fixed, developers can use the transparent App privacy tracking function with confidence. It has been one month since Apple’s new privacy policy was officially implemented. The ASOWorld technical team has collected and compared statistical data from different statistical platforms and found that the authorization rate for users to obtain IDFA is up to 30%.
