With iOS 13, You Can Know Where The Apps Tracked You

New Activity Trends for iPhone

Privacy is the central theme of its mobile operating system with this update.

The screenshots below, via 9to5Mac, show the kind of notifications you might expect on your iPhone and iPad. The iOS 13 background privacy notifications don't appear to offer this option right now, which sort of makes sense if you think about it, but it should appear when the app itself requests your location while running in the foreground - presumably in those cases where you haven't already granted ongoing location access. In addition to the map, the new notification also provides reasoning by the app developer.

The report shows picture of the Tesla and the App Store apps wherein a pop-up message has a map with all the data.

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.


Apple announced iOS 13 this week, which is set to bring a whole host of new features including dual AirPods pairing, mouse support for the iPad, and dark mode.

iOS 13 will allow users to capture photos, video, audio, and other content from multiple cameras and microphones, offering significant opportunities for creatives on their iPhones.

Currently, users can only choose between continuous background access or during app use. This option is a temporary authorisation, and the app will ask again for permission when it's next opened.

This new feature could mean that users can take photos and share them on Instagram at the same time as being live on Facebook, or using an augmented reality camera to distort their face at the same time as being on a Twitter Periscope live stream.
