How iOS 12 Will Deploy Added Layer Of Security On The Apple Device

The hype over iOS 12 is all-time high, and with beta versions of the new OS (Operating System) making rounds in the developer community, a lot of new features have been tossed up. Apple made the full use of its annual developers conference, WWDC, and spellbound the audience with some top of the line features that will accompany iOS 12.

Apart from upgraded performance, Memoji, Group FaceTime, and ARKIT 2, Apple has rightly tapped on the security issue as well. The American multinational technology company is leaving no stone unturned to offer the industry’s best security cover to its users.

Following are the security elements that have been added by Apple to fortify its devices. Take a look:

  • Scrutinizing data gathering: With changes in App Store review guidelines, Apple has cut down on the amount of information developers can collect about a user’s friends or contacts. Also, Apple has forbidden the selling of collected information to third parties.
  • The ban on cryptocurrency-mining apps: Besides security concerns, cryptocurrency apps have ticked off from the App Store due to the ability to quickly deplete a phone’s battery life.
  • Simplifying two-factor authentication: Sometimes, added security can be a hassle. To bring down the complexity related to two-factor authentication, the iOS 12 device will automatically copy the code sent to your device so you can quickly paste it into an app’s log-in page.
  • No more web tracking: The users all across the globe widely echo the issue of web tracking. It's not about the iOS users, but every user who surfs the net through the different platform is facing the same problem. In the name of cookies, websites track users’ activity. But now with iOS 12, the Safari browser will prevent the prying eyes from harvesting data.
  • No more device unlock: After getting into a tiff with government agencies like FBI, Apple has stepped up the device unlocking process. The new locking provision in iOS 12 will cut off data transfers through a USB port when the phone hasn't been unlocked in an hour. This will further hinder other companies to crack into Apple devices.

Apple has not limited itself to the announced features only. With the release of every beta version, subtle changes are brought to iOS 12. In another significant declaration, Apple has tweaked the password management. It will make it easier for users to adopt good password security practices.

Get set to embrace the most advanced OS version from Apple this fall.
