iOS 8 Security and Privacy Updates

iOS 8 is the eighth major release of the iOS mobile operating system designed by Apple Inc. as the successor to iOS 7. It was announced at the company's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) on June 2, 2014.

The latest updates to iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite introduce some very welcomed changes to the way Security and Privacy is dealt with on these platforms and may serve as an inspiration for others.

"I’ve gathered this information by watching over 17 hours of WWDC 2014 sessions and carefully reviewing, analyzing what was said, and writing a huge number of notes on Security, Privacy, UX and other areas which I will be publishing here in the coming weeks," said by lmjabreu.

Apple takes advantage of its unique control over hardware, software and services to provide the best security offer in the consumer market as detailedly described in their iOS Security Paper.

These Security and Privacy changes didn’t happen “because it’s a nice thing to do”.

Apple wants to grow their user base to include kids under 13,  this requires them to introduce Family Sharing in order to better comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act.

They also want to keep growing in Enterprise, that’s where the Secure Enclave, Device Management, Offline-first and a slew of other security measures come in.
