Apple WWDC 2021 aims its attention mainly at Privacy. In the past few weeks, Apple has been trending in the news for mainly two reasons. The first reason is its hard stance that is on privacy that has affected platforms like Facebook and was for a short moment put into question after the Airtags Launch.

And the other major reason is the Epic Games’ epic lawsuit against the company over the allegations of monopoly, particularly over the Apple app store. At its WWDC 2021 this week, Apple is now set to address one of the two major topics directly, and it would not be about to address the developers’ complaints about that monopoly.
What to Expect From Apple’s Developer
When it comes to privacy, Apple takes it very seriously, as it can be quite lucrative and profitable, mostly when it is in terms of brand loyalty. The app tracking transparency policy that happens to be controversial for all the advertisers and advertising platforms was just the beginning, and Bloomberg reported that Apple still has a lot of reveals in store for the coming days.
As stated in the report, Apple would be introducing a dashboard where the users would be able to have access to the depth of what data Third-party apps are collecting. Some might note that as always, Apple’s First-party apps receive special treatment. iOS and iPadOS would supposedly receive a new “status” feature that allows the users to set what they would be doing that notification and it would be handled in a different way whether you are working, driving, or sleeping.
Apple Privacy Update for iPad
Also, there would be a non-privacy feature coming to the iPad, and mostly it would be revolving around the home screen Widgets. The next iPadOS version would reportedly allow the users to keep these informational widgets found on any angle on the screen, just as it is on Android. iPad would also receive some better multitasking features, a sharp change in the direction from the vision that the platform has been in ever since the beginning.
Although some details remain to be heard of, Bloomberg stated that the messages of Apple would get some important updates as well. Given how messaging platforms have gotten places under a microscope these days especially with respect to privacy, it is not new that Apple would give messages a push as the one messaging platform you would ever require. Unless of course, you are in possession of an Apple device.
