Apple unveils improved photos, iPhone addiction tool

Nichole VegaJun 07, 2018

"Turns out "like" buttons and "comment" fields can be used to track you, so this year we are shutting that down", Apple senior vice president of software engineering Craig Federighi told the conference.

When it comes to how much time he spends on his iPhone, even Apple CEO Tim Cook has a problem.

Apple says that iOS 12 is created to make everyday tasks on iPhone and iPad faster and more responsive with performance improvements across the system.

For example, a user can change their settings so that if they say "I lost my keys", it will prompt Siri to pull up the Tile app and show you where your keys are.

The New York Times reported last week that Facebook had signed partnerships with device manufacturers like Apple and Samsung so that they could "recreate a Facebook-like experience" when it came to features such as messaging and "like" buttons without requiring an app.

To counter this, Apple will present web pages with less details about the computer, the BBC report said.

For years, Facebook's sneakiest data-collector has been the "Like" button.

The prompt also has been created in a way that makes it clear to users that they are being tracked by websites like Facebook.

You can set per-app or overall-usage time limits, manage app access for other users (such as children), set up warning pop-ups when you're close to hitting a preset usage time limit, and more. Safari will also prevents advertisers from collecting characteristics specific to each user's mobile device so they can't identify your device and retarget ads to users. It now features a "Reminder" that enables users to set a time alarm to remind them about having a break. With App Limits, Apple's also going to expand some of its parental controls, so parents can restrict how long their kids spend in certain apps, or certain types of apps.

Facebook executives have pushed back against critics like Apple. "We have never been in the data business", Cook said.

Apple Inc. introduced features to help iPhone users put down their phones - at least temporarily - after criticism over claims people were addicted to the company's flagship device and following similar moves to combat smartphone addiction by competitors. Although Apple didn't make this announcement on its WWDC 2018, according to the source 9to5mac, iOS 12 soon let you register an "alternative appearance" for Face ID.
