With the new update, all iPhones will receive new and improved privacy settings regarding what apps do with your personal information, however, how will this affect your information?
Well it seems it will only go up from where iPhone users are
According to many technology pundits, Apple’s privacy and security settings are one of the best in the market since they have developed apps to strengthen their user’s personal information, so much that they even go as far as put it in the forefront of their marketing campaigns.
Apps like Keychain password manager are getting a great boost
One of the most important things that will happen is that Apple with have to adhere to the new App Tracking Transparency rules that ask users if they would like for apps to track their information journey across websites, apps, and others.
The update will take place at the end of June
Starting at the end of June, IOS will mandate that app developers also give the opportunity to the users to delete their accounts from apps such as Facebook without needing to go to the website version of the app, this is a big win because for now, many people are only deactivating their account instead of deleting it.
Here is an excerpt of the new App Store Review Guidelines version 5.1.1
“If your app doesn’t include significant account-based features, let people use it without a login. If your app supports account creation, you must also offer account deletion within the app. Apps may not require users to enter personal information to function, except when directly relevant to the core functionality of the app or required by law.
“If your core app functionality is not related to a specific social network (e.g. Facebook, WeChat, Weibo, Twitter, etc.), you must provide access without a login or via another mechanism. The app must also include a mechanism to revoke social network credentials and disable data access between the app and social network from within the app.”
