What happens when you install IOS 14.5?

Honestly nothing happened!. I tried to launch Instagram and the app crashed ,same goes to notes(an IOS app). I restarted my device and Launched Instagram ,Facebook ,LinkedIn, Reddit and Twitter but I got no popup requesting the user to allow the app to track.

Wondering How to Enable or Disable tracking ?

Go To Settings->Privacy->Tracking. If you want your data to be tracked then turn on the toggle.

Now this new feature does not eliminate the ads completely but restricts personalized ads using the users data. Though some of us might think this as a privacy breach Facebook has been backing its actions by saying that they are supporting businesses that rely on ads to reach customers.

We cannot fully support Apple either because if Apple imposes such strict privacy policies then soon Facebook is going to charge its users to use its services and apple gets a cut if any app is is purchased from the App Store.
