Approximate location
A new setting lets you choose to share your approximate location, rather than your precise location, with an app.
Limited Photos library access
You can choose to share only selected items with a developer who asks for access to your photos, or you can give access to your entire library.

Recording indicator
iOS displays an indicator whenever an app is using the mic or camera, both in the app and in Control Center.

Upgrade to Sign in with Apple
Developers can offer the option to upgrade existing app accounts to Sign in with Apple so users can enjoy improved privacy, security, and ease of use without setting up a new account.
