Apple cracks down on Facebook
Apple made more moves to limit Facebook's data collection.
The changes are not Apple’s most expansive in the privacy space, simply an evolution. Last year, the company launched an Intelligent Tracking system that makes it more difficult for advertisers to follow users around the web. Still, Monday’s announcements are another step in a brewing spat with Facebook over privacy and data collection.
More apps can work with Siri - and users can make their own Siri shortcuts
Apple is improving Siri to let more apps interact with it. It's releasing a new feature for app developers to add shortcuts to Siri. It will mean that Siri will get more functionality and become a larger part of the operating system.
And Apple is also releasing a new app, Shortcuts, which can be used to create strings of tasks for Siri to do. One example given on stage was an Apple employee who created a "heading home" shortcut. When the user told Siri "heading home," it turned on the fan in the employee's home, sent a text and turned on the radio.
