Apple is already making it difficult for the developers with their App Store rules. Now they are all set to make it difficult for the advertisers. The new iOS feature will have privacy features like no other. This includes a whole set of privacy features that will stop the apps from tracking your location. Not only this, but it will also inform you about the data these apps have and what device they use for tracking. Apple users will be able to stop these apps and control their privacy.

Apple tends to believe that not all apps require the exact GPS coordinates to function correctly. This is why it makes it difficult for random apps to trace the location of the user. In the new upcoming iOS, users will have a tab known as “Precise Location”. When users turn this on, they will be allowed to control whether or not they want to reveal their exact location. This feature will most likely be on by default.

Apart from this, there will also be an orange light on the right-hand corner of your screen. This light will warn you whenever the camera or microphone of your device turns on. Mac already has this feature as per the speculations of the users. Users believe that Facebook records audios and videos. However, there is no concrete proof of this.
