Apple Announces iOS 12 With Speed Boosts, Grouped Notifications

Apple CEO Tim Cook enters the stage for a keynote address during the Apple Worldwide Developer Conference in San Jose California

"We believe your private data should remain private", said Apple's senior vice president of software engineering, Craig Federighi.

Apple chief executive Tim Cook has publicly criticised Facebook and Google before, saying the business models of trading in personal privacy was bad for society.

In fact, Apple was fairly forthcoming in calling out the practices of "data companies", practices that put or weaken privacy of users, at its developer event. "Well it turns out these can be used to track you, whether you click on them or not".

"We've all seen these - these like buttons, and share buttons and these comment fields". What the new Safari will also do is beat the fingerprinting approach which helps marketers use publicly accessible information about devices and then single them out to track their usage.

At the Apple WWDC 2018, the company continued its ongoing assault against ad tech - for instance, last year's Safari update disabled autoplay on video and audio while Intelligent Tracking Prevention Webkit tool attempted to identify and block cookies on your browsers.

After years of working to make the smartphone indispensable ― some might even say addictiveApple said Monday that it will soon provide an app created to help people step away from the iPhone.

While Facebook was not mentioned during Monday's keynote, Apple has criticised the social network operator recently.

The prompt also has been created in a way that makes it clear to users that they are being tracked by websites like Facebook. The initiative includes reminders to take a break from services like YouTube, tools to help Android users monitor the time they spend inside various apps, and a "wind down" feature that pings you to go to bed at a preset time while reducing blue light and gradually fading your screen to black and white. It now features a "Reminder" that enables users to set a time alarm to remind them about having a break.

But as the Verge reports, there are still a handful of new features that come with the update including one that tracks your phone usage, group FaceTime calls, and an app that can measure your furniture.

The integration let users speed up logins to their social-media accounts via a menu in the iOS settings app. IPhone users also had the option to synchronise their contacts with Facebook and Twitter.

"We're empowering people with the facts that will allow them to decide for themselves how they want to cut back", said Cook.
