What you need to know
- Apple seems to be fixing App Tracking Transparency for some users.
- Some had found that the option was greyed out when Apple launched the feature.
You'll now be able to turn on App Tracking Transparency just to tell apps not to track you.
When Apple launched App Tracking Transparency with iOS 14.5, some users found that the toggle to "Allow Apps to Request to Track" was greyed out. This was unfortunate for users who actually did want to grant tracking for certain apps.
As reported by 9to5Mac, it appears that Apple is finally fixing the issue as multiple readers are now reporting they are able to turn the toggle on.
While this is great news for those who do want to handle tracking app by app, a recent survey found that 96% of iOS users did not plan to allow tracking for any app.
