Apple smacks Facebook over Web tracking

In iOS 12, the upcoming version of the software that underlies the iPhone and the iPad, Apple is adding a collection of features that are created to help people control how they use their devices.

Craig Federighi, Apple's senior vice president of software engineering, speaks about the company's "Screen Time" feature during an announcement of new products at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference, June 4, 2018, in San Jose, Calif.

Once you link your phone to your computer, many apps will have a new "Take Photo" option at your disposal (alternatively you can also use your iPhone to scan documents). "We have never been in the data business", Cook said. Parents can also use this system to monitor and remotely place limits on how their children use their own devices. You should however keep in mind that if you're planning on using the better versions, there might be glitches and a data loss and therefore, you have to be careful about the version which you want to use.

The Apple CEO stated how iOS 12 and macOS Mojave will come with increased privacy and security for users.

All of these upgrades will be available later in the year with Apple expected to released iOS 12 in September alongside its next generation of iPhones.

"This is beyond remarkable", Cook said, noting that the online App Store will be 10 years old in July.

Apple used its annual developer conference WWDC to unveil a host of updates, including limitations on how companies can track users of its Safari web browser, a measure that poses obstacles for third parties such as Facebook and Google as well as other analytics providers.

Cook expanded on Apple's stance on privacy in the interview with CNN.

"It empowers you with insight and control", Federighi said.

So says 9to5Mac, which reports that while the feature wasn't announced during the firm's WWDC keynote on Monday, a fiddle with the iOS 12 developer beta uncovers a new setting in Face ID to 'Set Up an Alternative Appearance'.
