Apple issues clarification on extent of iOS malware infection

iOS 13 features a dark mode, more video editing tools, a redesigned Photos app that uses machine learning to organize your images and videos, a revamped reminders app, new Memoji customization options and stickers-and that's just scratching the surface. "You can control whether your device shares precise location information with Facebook via Location Services, a setting on your phone or tablet", McDonald noted.

Twitch has had a Mac, PC and iOS app before, but it's the first time that it will release one for the Apple TV. Facebook still believes its platform can only shine if users give it access to their location, but this looks more like an attempt to show some transparency before the public learns about how much it's being tracked even when not directly using the app. Furthermore, it will offer more insight with a map where you can see the location history that was accessible to a certain app.

If you decide to update to Android 10, you'll have the option to allow individual apps to access your precise location, either while you're using the app or when you're not.

Facebook's latest blog post informs users on how iOS 13 will change location sharing on the app.

Facebook is also going to begin to phase out its background location setting on Android 10 and will remind users via notifications to check their device location settings.

Facebook has received an onslaught of flack earlier over privacy related issues and is still under scanner when it comes to user-privacy. However, we know that it is definitively coming. Other apps will likely follow suit, and make similar cases as to why you should allow the app to access your location data.
