Apple today released the first beta of iOS 14.5 and iPadOS 14.5 for all iPhones and iPads registered to receive developer OTA updates.
The major highlight of the iOS 14.5 beta release is that Apple will start showing the app tracking pop-up to users whenever an app tries to access their random advertising identifier. Apple has already been showing these prompts and asking developers to implement the required changes in their apps. However, with the iOS 14.5 release, the company will be making this compulsory.
The first public beta of iOS 14.5 and iPadOS 14.5 should also be released to the public within the next 24 hours. Alongside iOS 14.5, Apple has also made the first beta of watchOS 7.4 and tvOS 14.5 available for download to developers.

Update: Apple has seeded a new build of iOS 14.5 Beta 1 to developers. It is unclear what changes the latest build has.
