Apple will make a privacy change in the coming days

In the coming days, Apple will make a major change in its privacy policy that will make it difficult for advertisers on the Internet and that keeps it in conflict with Facebook, company sources confirmed on Wednesday.

The Cupertino (California, USA) firm has prepared the application tracking transparency tool to be released with the next release of the update of the operating system for iPhone iOS14.5.

Once this change is made, Apple devices will by default require applications to receive the user’s permission before following their data through third-party portals, and at the same time it will allow Internet users to check which applications have requested permission to «Follow» them in their online browsing.

However, if users so wish, they can change these preferences and determine who they allow and who do not, in the settings menu of the iPhone or iPad, and even deny tracking to all applications at once.

The new privacy tool requires iOS14.5, so those who decide not to update the operating system will not be able to use it.
