According to MacRumors, Apple’s App Privacy Report, which was revealed at WWDC 2021, has arrived on iPhones with the first version of iOS 15.2. Users can now see what information their applications have access to and what they’re sharing from the new page in Settings.

The report will also show you which additional web domains the app accessed, allowing you to compare this to the sites you visited directly in the app to get a clearer understanding of who could be viewing your information. Also, the feature will display you the information and sites the app has access to and how often they’ve used them in the previous week (for example, it could show that your weather app accesses your location every hour), according to Apple’s WWDC announcement.

Other Apple privacy measures haven’t gone down well with all developers. Google waited nearly two months to adapt iOS App Store privacy labels, while both Facebook and Snap cited the iPhone’s Ad Tracking Transparency feature (which allows users to quickly opt-out of some types of ad tracking) for revenue shortfalls.

If the App Privacy Report depicts them in an unfavorable light, it’s probable more complaints will be there from developers.
