Few years back Apple released AirTags which are now the most selling product over the globe. These are very useful for tracking your cars and luggages. Right now, you may have received a notification on your iPhone saying “AirTag found moving with you” and you must be thinking about that. You can simply ignore this notification if you haven’t stolen anything from anyone. This feature is very useful for the owner because he can keep an eye on what belongs to him. With the help of Google, this year both companies have made a contract to expand this tracking feature. By the end of 2023, user can track even using Android devices.
6- iMessage Contact Key Verification
Apple is always focusing on its users security improvements. Apple added LockDown Mode for iPhone as a security to prevent it’s data from any hacker. Now Apple is adding advance security for iCloud & iMessages. If any unknown device is signed in with your iCloud you will be notified. This feature is helpful for those who thinks their data is sensitive. Normal users should not be worry about because it is not easy to hack an iCloud or Apple server.
