The iOS 14.5 update will add a feature that notifies you of any unknown devices found moving with you.
If you have ever lost your Apple device, you’re very conversant in the Find My app. The subsequent iOS update adds a touch bit more functionality.
Find My To Add a New Safety Feature
9to5Mac has discovered a replacement feature within the iOS 14.5 beta called “Item Safety Alerts,” which you will be ready to find under the Me tab upon release. Enabled by default, this feature will notify you if an unknown item is moving with you.
Perhaps you’re wondering what meaning exactly. Well, if, as an example, someone were to place a tracker of some kind on your person or in your pocket, bag, car, etc., Find I will provide you with a warning and permit you to seek out and disable it.
You can turn these alerts off, but it isn’t recommended. If you are trying to show them off, a pop-up warning will come up that reads: “The owner of an unknown item is going to be ready to see your location, and you’ll not receive notifications when an unknown item is found moving with you.”
Apple Continues To Improve Its Find My App
Apple hasn’t yet officially given us any details about Item Safety Alerts. This feature was tested and eventually removed in early versions of iOS 14.3, but it’s reassuring to ascertain its return within the iOS 14.5 beta.
