IOS 13 set to tighten in-app privacy permissions

With iOS 13, You Can Know Where The Apps Tracked You iOS 13 will show users a Map of the areas tracked by some applications

With iOS 13, users will also have an option to share their location data with an app "just once" so that it can not be accessed by the app repeatedly.

At the annual developer conference WWDC, Apple announced iOS 13. Besides limiting apps from tracking your location, Apple is also including a more detailed view of how apps use your location. Among all the features the OS offers, another new ability is access to all your location-tracking data.

The screenshot below shows the locations used by the Tesla app and the App Store.

The pop-up, shown above, shows two menus saying which app is using location services, why they're using them, where they've been tracking you, and set of choices that allow to user to change the app's permissions.

Legendary developer Shinji Mikami announces Ghostwire: Tokyo
It was introduced on stage by Tango Gameworks boss Shinji Mikami Himself, and by Creative Director Ikumi Nakamura . Ghostwire Tokyo doesn't have a release date yet, but we'll keep you posted on any details as soon as we get them.

As a reminder, the pop-up message only appears when the Ask option is enabled for a particular app.

This news was a part of the fine print in Apple's iOS 13 press page and the brand stating that the release is a software update for iPhone 6s devices and later.

The aim of the map data is to keep you aware of how and when the apps track your location and you can decide on which apps to let use your location.

While the cut off for the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 6 line-up is the biggest bitter pill to swallow, iOS 13 will not be supported on the 6 generation iPod Touch as well; a PMP that was still selling until last week; until Apple suddenly thought it wise to introduce a 7 generation version of the product. For whatever reason, Apple says that watchOS doesn't need the feature, and tvOS and macOS don't support it at all - they simply prompt the user every time location data is requested.
