IOS 14 Privacy Updates

Apple in February 2021 introduced the latest version of its iOS operating system, iOS 14.4, which was released on September 16. iOS 14 is one of Apple’s biggest iOS updates to date, introducing Home Screen design changes, major new features, updates for existing apps, Siri improvements, and many other tweaks that streamline the iOS interface.

In my opinion one of the biggest changes is the Updated Privacy protections require developers to get permission before accessing devices on a local network, and there are new options for limiting access to select photos or providing apps with only approximate location data. All apps are also required to get user permission before tracking them across websites, and new icons show up on the Home Screen when an app is using a camera or microphone.

For instance, one now can request Facebook not to pass our information to companies outside of Facebook which will eventually create a LAWSUITS war between Apple and Facebook. If you want to know how to tell Facebook not to sell your information to third party companies’ do a simple internet search “How do I stop Facebook from sharing my information with a third party?” and many results will pop up.
