Apple’s next iOS update unlocks ‘Asian’ adult content
If you enable the “Limit adult websites” option in Screen Time on iOS, you will find that you will not be able to search for anything with the word “Asian” on Safari. This will only return a page stating that you cannot browse your query results because it is restricted – no matter if you are only searching for “Asian Cuisine” or “Asian Countries”. Now the tech giant is finally fixing the problem. According to Mashable, the last iOS 14.5 beta The adult content filter no longer blocks searches that contain the word “Asian”.
Screen Time’s adult filter has been blocking requests containing Asians since at least December 2019, when iOS developer Steven Shen discovered the issue and reported it to Apple. It remained unsolved, however, and was highlighted when “Stop Asian Hate” was posted online to combat rising anti-Asian sentiment in the United States. Yes, the adult filter also blocks the campaign slogan on most search engines. When we tried to reproduce the issue last year, Google, Bing, DuckDuckGo, and even Baidu showed us a notification that we were trying to browse a restricted page. Yahoo is the only search engine capable of handling queries with “Asian”.
Mashable says that when he installed iOS 14.5 Beta on an iPhone, he managed to search for terms like “Asian”, “Asian cuisine”, “Asian actors”, “Asian art” and “stop Asian hate” even with the adult filter on. Apple rolled out the beta platform to the public last week, so you can download and install it if you’re in the company. Beta software program. The final version of the platform is expected to be available this spring.
