Apple’s New Features to Include Blocking FB Ads

Apple announced a new operating system named Mojave, the ability to darken the Mac screen when unused and new privacy protections at the first day of its Worldwide Developer’s Conference, which was livestreamed to the public. Most of the features will be available this fall.

The Safari browser’s notification that allows users to turn off Facebook ads that follow them from page to page was one privacy feature that got the most cheers from the crowd.

“One of the reasons people choose Apple products is our commitment to security,” said Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering. “We believe your private data should remain private.”

Apple is releasing new app features in its iOS 12.

The sharing of mobile apps with the desktop by 2019, iOS 12 apps, garnered appreciation from the developers, too. The iPhone’s camera will be able to scan documents for the desktop, as well as other apps being shared and readily available on both the phone and the desktop, such as the Home app, which controls temperature, security cameras and other smarthome features. News, Stocks and Voice Memos will also be shared.

Apple will make “Screen Time,” a feature that helps users track their time and their children’s time on iPhones and iPads, in September.
