Apple WWDC 2018 Siri health and augmented reality are expected topics

The imminent versions of software powering Mac PCs and iPhones will restrict the usage of the purported cookies from Facebook "like" feature that can track individuals from one networking platform to another, stated Apple.

"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 a standing-room crowd of some 6,000 developers at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference in the heart of Silicon Valley.

Apple has said new operating systems powering its devices will include features created to thwart the use of secret trackers to monitor people's online activities. Information on users relationship status, religion and political tendency were among the list of the private data which had been made available over the agreement between these companies, the report said.

Federighi demoed that the new Safari would catch the likes of Facebook that track users on third-party websites and block them unless users agreed to a prompt.

Facebook was widely slammed for having the data of 87 million of its users being collected by the British firm Cambridge Analytica without the knowledge of its customers.

Have Star Wars trolls forced Kelly Marie Tran off Instagram?
She later told Glamour magazine : "I was on Instagram , trying to do that whole thing, and people weren't very nice". Though Tran's Instagram account, which has almost 200,000 followers, is still online, there are now no posts.

As it turned out, Apple's focus this year was on digital wellbeing tools, which are essentially aimed at helping users spend less time on their smart devices.

It also comes with new parental controls that let parents view how their child is spending their time in apps and set time limits. Say you're going out to brunch with friends and snap a few photos.

It will disable older plug-ins that aren't being used, provide only standard fonts and provide only a simplified set of system configurations.

Apple CEO Tim Cook has rubbished reports which claim that the company had user data-sharing agreements with Facebook. Other than this, we are unclear at this point whether Apple is replacing the app completely or it aims to keep App Store Connect and iTunes Connect simultaneously, which does not make sense. "The App Store has fundamentally changed the way we live".

But some analysts remained unimpressed, saying Apple is lagging rivals in key areas like artificial intelligence as the smartphone market matures. He said that the idea to do something like this "is so foreign" to Apple.
