iOS 17.5: the beta unveils an anti-tracking feature

Apple has just revealed the first beta version of iOS 17.5. While the update isn’t due until the end of May, we already know a lot about the features that will make it its signature. In addition to the modifications made specifically in Europe by Apple to comply with the DMA, with the arrival of applications downloadable from the web. Apple should work on other featureslaunched around the world.

iOS 17.5: new features

On this subject, the iOS 17.5 beta contains a new feature to combat “unwanted tracking”. Last year Apple had already taken this problem very seriously after several users complained of having been tracked without their knowledge thanks to AirTags in particular.

With iOS 17.5, Apple would like to move up a gear. The Apple brand could launch a new option to combat unwanted tracking. According to information discovered in the beta code by 9to5Mac, iPhones will be able to detect tracking accessories, even if they are not Apple or Find My certified.

Apple issues alert message

When a device is detected near the user over a long period of time, the latter will be notified by a message on their screen. “This item is not certified on the Apple Find My network. You can disable this item and prevent it from sharing its location with the owner. To do this, follow the instructions provided on a website by the manufacturer of that item. »

This message should appear on all iPhones that have iOS 17.5 installed. It may make it possible to deactivate remote tracking by a third party when the latter is carried out without the user’s knowledge.
