If you missed yesterday, finally Apple Released iOS 14.5 With Apple Tracking transparency. Now, it has come to light that Apple is making proper use of apps that try to convince users to disable this privacy protection feature with incentives.
Application tracking transparency is a new feature This allows companies to share your data with third parties only if you allow it.
What this means is that while Facebook can still remove terrible information about you, it cannot share it with the big data brokers who use this information to sell targeted ads. This should limit the number of ads you see on your iPhone.
This is a lucrative market, and Apple has angered a lot of companies and has made privacy-conscious consumers happy by implementing this.
Apple is concerned that apps will try to exploit users who do not understand this feature by offering offers such as free trials, if people choose to be monitored. To mitigate this, reports say it has implemented a new rule in the App Store that prohibits this practice. Macroemers.
The new rules are as follows:
Do not offer offers to meet the demand. You may not compensate people for granting their permission, and you may not block activity or content or use your application until people allow you to monitor them.
Do not display a custom message that reflects the function of the system alert. In particular, do not create a button title that uses the word “permission” or similar, because people will not allow anything on the front warning screen.
Do not show the image of static alert and do not change it in any way.
Do not draw a visual note that draws people’s attention to the permission button of the computer alert.
Overall, it’s very smart that Apple has implemented this rule right now, and it’s interesting to see if apps value it or try to look around app tracking transparency in the coming weeks.
