What we learned from Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference

An artist compiled various rumors about the 2018 iPhone into images including this one

A New York Times report stated how personal information of Facebook users had been made available for Apple and other 60 device makers over an agreement between them.

CEO Tim Cook yesterday at the annual World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) showcased new software features for the iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple Watch.

Apple could change course on this-it wouldn't be the first time they said something isn't happening multiple times only for it to happen.

Apple's senior vice president of Software Engineering Craig Federighi speaks during the 2018 Apple Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) at the San Jose Convention Center on June 4, 2018 in San Jose, California.

Going further, Screen Time will also break down how often you pick up your phone, which apps you used the most after picking up your phone, and how many notifications are received based on a per-app basis.

It also comes with new parental controls that let parents view how their child is spending their time in apps and set time limits.

In a wide-ranging interview, Cook told CNN that issues around privacy have "gotten totally out of control" and that some form of regulation would be "fair". He said that the deal is merely for user-convenience and that they have never been in the data business.

Also, parents can monitor their children's usage. What is clear is that Apple is banking on users becoming more interested in AR experiences.

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.

"Privacy means people know what they're signing up for, in plain English and repeatedly", Jobs said.

Starting with iOS 12, Apple previewed some of its upcoming features and a major feature was the privacy aspect to it.

Federighi said Safari would give users the ability to stop social media platforms and other sites like Facebook and Google from tracking them across online.

"It turns out that these can be used to track you, whether you click on them or not".

Closing apps on iPhone X was a bit of a task, and users had to swipe up, long press on the cards of recent apps to see a list of applications that were open.
