The 6 Biggest New iPhone Features Apple Just Announced

Apple's senior vice-president of Software Engineering, Craig Federighi, said that there would be greater protection for users against developers that want to collect and use their data.

9to5Mac has confirmed that the feature allows up to two users to register their face with Face ID on iPhone X. Until now, while Touch ID supports up to five different fingerprints from different people, Face ID has been restricted to just a single user.

You need to turn on Screentime, but if you do your iPhone will begin monitoring your usage, and sharing insights with you.

The US technology firm says that its next version of iOS will actually make phones faster despite being packed with new features.

Apple said iOS 12 will significantly improve how apps load and other performance features on iOS devices. With the launch of Safari 12, users will get a notification to choose whether share their data with third-party widgets like Facebook Like buttons, Disqus comments widgets and other plug-ins on a page.

Facebook of course depends heavily on advertising revenues (assisted by tracking tools) to fund its free service, but Apple's decision means it is no longer willing to allow its platforms to be used in this way.

The prompt also has been created in a way that makes it clear to users that they are being tracked by websites like Facebook.

Later when we spoke with Tim Cook, we asked, did they introduce this as a way to directly target Facebook? People can set time limits on specific apps and get alerts reminding them to stop using that software as the limit approaches.

Facebook executives have pushed back against critics like Apple.

After shareholders filed a proposal earlier this year that would have urged Apple to do something to help iPhone users limit the time they spend on their devices, the company promised it would do just that.

The Photos app in iOS 12 will take photo face recognition a step further by making suggestions on who you might want to share the photos with, depending on the subject.

Some of the controls are similar to those unveiled by Google last month, when it revealed plans to have phones go into "shush" mode when placed face down on a table and have the screen show only greyscale colors late at night.

"The things mentioned in the Times article about relationship status, all these kinds of things, are so foreign to us, and not data that we have ever received at all or requested - zero", Cook told NPR in an interview.
