The most informative feature is his new Software Monitoring function – which means users will be forced to “choose” if they want their online activities to be tracked by the company. Here are some things that caught our eye.

Unlock the iPhone wearing a mask

Apple’s new operating system will allow you to unlock your phone while wearing a mask – and a big fish.

Apple’s face recognition doesn’t work when users are wearing a mask. Apple’s work also includes owning an Apple Watch.

Apple said: “With the Apple Watch on hand, unlocked, and next to the iPhone, users can simply look at their iPhone and will receive haptic feedback from Apple Watch, indicating that their iPhone is unlocked.”

For anyone who does not have an Apple Watch, as well as an iPhone, this service will not work.

Transparency of Software Monitoring

A new update will mean it will immediately flash when you want to download an app – if you ask for your permission for the app to monitor your activities online.

Those data are now being used to create highly targeted ads based on your online behavior with a company like Facebook.

Facebook has publicly asked to oppose the new changes. The less Facebook knows about you, the less money can be paid for ads.

Apple’s motive for the move has been questioned. If software developers can’t make a lot of money through advertising, they may have a tendency to charge for services – and Apple makes money from these payments.

New emoji

Apple has introduced several new emojis in a recent update.

For example, people will be able to choose different skin tones for “kissing emoji” and “hearted couple” emoji.

Apple said that “additional emoji include characters breathing face, face and spiral eyes, face in the clouds, hearts on fire, a corrective heart, and a bearded woman, among others.”

Secrets

Apple says Siri, its voice-controlled assistant, is becoming more diverse.

“Secret no longer has the default voice, which allows users to select the voice that speaks to them when setting up their devices,” says Apple.

“In English, users can now choose from a wide variety of voice options. These new Secret Sounds use Neural Speech Technology for voice recognition,” says Apple.

Apple says these updates represent long-term commitments for diversity and inclusion.

However most of Apple’s devices have been manufactured in China, where Apple has received criticism for not being more vocal about the Uyghurs medical government.

Apple critics argue that the company should be consistent in its message about diversity – at home and abroad.

On Air Advertising

Apple’s new operating system will work with the newly launched “AirTags”.

A small disk can be attached to things like your keys or wallet. If you lose them, you will be able to follow them and Get my app.

This looks similar to another product on the market: “Tile”.

Last week Apple was criticized during a Senate hearing for copying the idea of ​​Tile.

Tile Attorney General Kirsten Daru said “We welcome competition but it must be fair competition and Apple’s idea of ​​competing is not entirely fair.”

He accused Apple of preventing Tile from using technology behind Apple Get my job, giving AirTag an unfair advantage.

Apple said the product was different. “We did not copy the Tile product … It is completely different from anything else on the market,” said Apple Chief Executive Officer Kyle Andeer.
