A week after the release of the main iOS 14.5 update for the iPhone, Apple is introducing a new update, 14.5.1. The latter corrects errors, particularly in application-tracking transparency, but it also fixes security vulnerabilities.

One of them is Application Tracking Transparency (ATT) which gives us the ability to choose whether an application can track our activities or not for the purpose of showing us targeted ads.

In addition to ATT, the iOS 14.5.1 update also fixes vulnerabilities. A big drawback if we want to believe once again the details shown in the update.
IOS 14.5.1 includes bug fixes, provides important security updates, and is recommended for all users.
Apple warns us that the iOS 14.5.1 update is important when it comes to the security of our iPhone.
