Apple continues to put in place security to ensure its clients’ confidentiality. Developers will be obliged to provide a right to delete their account while submitting their application to the Apple firm as of January 31, 2022. This step, which was announced at the Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) in June, will be implemented with the updating of the App Store rules.
Users will benefit from this functionality since they will no longer be linked to a firm when removing an app. It may also be integrated into platforms in a non-intrusive manner, for as by a link to a web browser.
Apple’s upward trajectory continues
In addition, Apple said that its mechanism for reporting frauds or offensive, abusive, or illegal material in App Store apps is now available on iOS 15 and iPadOS 15, with macOS Monterey to follow. It is now only available in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the United States, but it will be expanded to other areas of the world in the near future.
Apple relies on what was started with iOS 14 with App Tracking Transparency and the addition of information about the data gathered by each app to the App Store. When developers do not follow the firm’s policies, the corporation does not hesitate to take action. It began rejecting software upgrades using a certain SDK that permits data to be gathered without users’ consent at the start of the year.
