Apple’s annual developer conference, WWDC 2019, will kick off today. Apple is expected to continue its efforts towards the transition from a hardware-driven company to a services platform.
CEO Tim Cook will deliver the opening keynote at the WWDC 2019 in San Jose, California. He’s expected to unveil updates to Apple’s software including macOS and iOS. Cook is also expected to shed light on the company’s new initiatives for users privacy and security.
Ahead of the WWDC 2019, reports suggest Apple will make some bold changes to its platform which includes phasing out iTunes, streamlining mobile and desktop operating systems and more.
Sign in with Apple
Apple has introduced its own sign-in system which blocks third-party apps from tracking you. The sign-in system is similar to Facebook and Google sign-in system. Apple also allows users to hide their email IDs on third-party apps. Apple will give a random unique email ID for such apps. Emails sent to such IDs will come to your actual ID but the app will never see your real email ID.
More iOS 13 features
Apple has revamped Reminder app with smarter features. Apple Maps has also been refreshed with new UI. The updated Apple Maps will be rolled out in the US by the end of this year. The latest version will arrive in select countries next year. Apple has also introduced new privacy features, especially to give users more control on apps tracking location.
