    If you are using an iPhone then this information is for you! Recently, Apple rolled out a major software update to the iOS devices which adds a number of new features as well as some important security checks. With the release of iOS 15.2, iPhone users got the App Privacy Report, which gives users an overview of what information has been accessed by the applications in your device and what they are sharing.

    The App Privacy Report shows you the number of times an app has accessed your vital information such as location, photos, camera, your contact list, microphone and many other such information. Additionally, the report also offers to view that with whom your data might be shared with and other web domains which may contact the apps to get your data. This privacy policy makes the data privacy transparent between you and applications.

    What's more in iOS 15.2 update?

    In addition to the App Privacy Report, the update adds several other features to your iPhone. One of these is a feature to protect your kids from paedophiles. The feature will now scan the messages having the possible naked pictures sent to and from a device and blur them automatically. Also, a button allowing them to contact their parents within the messages will be shown.

    Another updated feature will let you know about the genuinity of your Apple smartphone parts. Users sometimes prefer to go to unauthorized repair shops which offer iPhone parts at cheaper prices or even sometimes try DIY fixes. The new feature will basically help you to know if the shopkeeper scammed you with the fake iPhone components. You can simply go to the General option in Settings and see the 'About to', which will show you the parts and service history of the iPhone. This will show if there are any non-genuine parts or if any component is not working properly.
