The vaunted and controversial privacy changes brought by Apple’s new iOS 14 mobile operating system will ultimately be postponed 中国电话号码表. Due to such changes, now delayed, applications will have to request explicit permission from users before collecting or sharing their personal data.
The apple company has decided that the changes from the privacy point of view in iOS 14 will take effect from next year and not at the end of this month, as was originally planned.
“We want to give developers the time they need to make the necessary changes and, as a result, the requirement to obtain explicit user permission for follow-up tasks will take effect early next year,” say the Cupertino people.
In the new iOS 14 there will be more controls when it comes to sharing location data and the user will be warned in addition to the apps that are using their phone’s microphone and camera.
Facebook had already sounded the alarm about the dire advertising consequences emanating from the changes in iOS 14
One of the most controversial changes in iOS 14 is that apps will not be able to track users using their unique device identifier (IDFA) without obtaining their explicit consent. The bolt of the IDFA will put the wheels in the wheels of the advertising business of companies like Facebook, which will not be able to personalize their ads in third-party applications.
Facebook already sounded the alarms last week and warned that this modification would end up having a significant impact on its audience network (which makes it possible to integrate advertising into third-party apps). In fact, the world’s largest social network prophesies that its revenue on the iOS 14 operating system will be cut by up to 50% due to restrictions on getting targeted advertising in the eyes of users.
So disastrous could be the new iOS 14 for Facebook that the social network does not rule out completely abandoning its audience network in Apple’s operating system.
Despite complaints voiced by Mark Zuckerberg’s company, Apple insists that privacy is a “fundamental human right” and therefore seeks to give users greater control over the personal data compiled by applications. socialposts
