Yesterday Apple surprised us by launching the new beta version of iOS 14.5, a new version of the operating system for iPhone which turns out has Dual SIM support and monitors our financial health through the Wallet app.
iOS 14.5 could allow us to monitor our financial health through the Wallet app
Apparently, the guys at 9to5Mac would have discovered in the code of the new beta version of iOS 14.5 a framework called “FinHealth”, a code that could refer to “financial health” and that could basically bring us the status of our financial health in the Wallet app. A new machine learning connected to the Wallet app that would automatically analyze our spending based on merchants, recurring purchases, irregular purchases, etc. An analysis that would allow us to have statistics and recommendations to help us save in our daily lives.
As you can see, it seems that the operation of this new service that we could have in the Wallet app is very similar to other financial apps that allow us to control our expenses. Obviously this “financial health” would be nourished by the data provided by the transactions made through Wallet, something that already happens in Apple Card users, but that could be extended to all users since all transactions made with Apple Pay allow us to monitor spending. We will see what all this translates into we think it is quite feasible but in the end, we must wait for Apple to decide to activate this new feature. And you, would you like to have a summary of your financial health thanks to Wallet transaction data? Leave us a comment to know what you think!
iOS 14.5 also enables DualSIM option in 5G coverage
The 5G coverage of the iPhone in its various models has generated a lot of controversies since its launch, especially if we consider that European users have had to settle for a 5G Sub-6Ghz while in the United States they have been able to enjoy the “full” version of 5G.
Curious if we take into account that the device has cost me a few hundred euros more than the average American citizen. Saving these differences, it is time to talk about the fact that Apple has activated with iOS 14.5 Beta the possibility of activating 5G coverage on both cards with the DualSIM system incorporated.
Obviously, iOS 14.5 is still as of today in “Beta” status, i.e. testing shortly before its final release. There is a lot of talk about this new major version of iOS that will bring important new features that had been delayed for the moment. The same has happened with macOS, which finally reaches its version 188.8.131.52 to solve a good handful of small bugs that made it insufferable to work daily with macOS Big Sur. In the meantime, we will not even have to activate this new feature, the 5G coverage of the iPhone DualSIM system will be activated automatically.
We take this opportunity to remind you that 5G is still a fairly immature technology. You’re going to find it much more cost-effective to continue taking advantage of “the goodness” of 4G. So you can head to Settings > Mobile Data > Options > Voice & Data and select 4G as the priority coverage, or at least choose automatic 5G so that the system detects when it is better for battery consumption and data transmission performance to use 4G or 5G. While iOS continues to grow to update by the update, and we tell you about it in present iPhone. Stay tuned because we will continue to bring you news in the coming days.
