However, multinational cybersecurity technology company Certo Software has discovered a potential risk in TestFlight. When users install this application, hackers can install a custom keyboard with an interface identical to the iPhone's default keyboard.

The internal code of the iOS 17.5 beta has revealed details about this new feature. According to the analysis, iOS will be able to detect tracking accessories even if they are not certified by Apple or the Find My network. When an unwanted tracking accessory is detected, users will receive a notification and instructions on how to disable it.

This new anti-tracking feature is an important step forward in Apple's efforts to protect user privacy. Last year, the company partnered with Google to develop an industry standard to address unwanted tracking. However, to date, these efforts have mainly focused on detecting certified tracking devices.

The launch of iOS 17.5 with a new anti-tracking system will mark an important step forward in protecting users from stalkers. This feature is expected to be supported by many accessory manufacturers such as Samsung, Tile, Chipolo, Eufy and Pebblebee.

In addition to the new anti-tracking feature, iOS 17.5 may also bring some small changes such as performance improvements and bug fixes. Apple is expected to release the new version of iOS to the public in May, along with new iPads and accessories.
