Sign In with Apple
With Sign In with Apple, users can use Apple IDs to log in to third-party apps and services, and use Face ID to log in more easily without revealing any other personal information.
Unlike login services provided by third parties such as Google and Facebook, logging in with Apple ID allows users to choose to show or hide their email address. Users can also generate a unique random anonymous email address through Sign In with Apple, which can be managed for specific applications, giving users more control over their data.
Guy "Bud" Tribble, Apple's vice president of software technology, told CNET that this feature is a direct challenge to the idea that "convenient login services cost a lot." He said: "In fact, it is not as difficult to realize this. We believe that users should be given more control through data and other means."
The Sign In with Apple feature will go live with macOS Catalina, iOS 13 and iPadOS.
iPadOS takes full advantage of the iPad's large screen, offering a redesigned home screen, an upgraded split-screen operation, and a new Apple Pencil integration.
In talking about the decision to separate the iPad from traditional iOS devices, Craig Federighi, senior vice president of software engineering, explained that this reflects the increasingly unique features of the device.
"It has become a truly unique experience. It is notiPhoneExperience. It is not a Mac experience. This name is the recognition of it. We have expanded the area where people can say that the iPad is the best solution. ”
Apple Developer Program members can now download iPadOS, and the public beta will be available later this month. In the fall, iPadOS will be available as an iPad Air 2 and higher, free software updates for all iPad Pro devices, fifth-generation iPads and higher, and iPad mini 4 and higher.
