Apple is about to reveal improvements around the UDID, the unique identifier number that allows developers to track the owner of device (s) on iOS, reports the Wall street journal.
For the past few months, Apple has restricted the rules for using UDID, the unique identifier number that allows developers to track the owner of the iPhone or iPad. Indeed, the UDID has more and more proved to be a tool which makes it possible to extract somewhat sensitive information. Apple has therefore tightened the screw to avoid being hit once again on the fingers by the regulatory authorities.
Developers criticize the arrival of these new provisions and claim a new system that would allow them to be able to regain a certain flexibility, in particular in the context of testing their future application (s). According to the Wall Street Journal, these calls would not have been in vain near Apple since the latter would prepare to launch a new tool intended for the developers which would have the characteristic to respect the confidentiality of the data and the private life of the users. “This system will allow developers to collect important data anonymously, without being linked to UDID”, accuracy of American daily life.
There is no doubt that this novelty could also be the announcement service this evening at Apple's press conference.
We discuss it on the forum.
