Apple unveiled iOS 13 at its WWDC 2019 worldwide developer conference in SAN jose, California, June 4, 2018.Among them, iOS 13 features a new 'encrypted' login mode, known as 'Sign with Apple,' that is causing a stir between users and developers.


As we all know, apple's original intention of pushing 'Sign In withApple' is also to fundamentally improve the security of iOS system and ensure the stability of iOS system In the field of user information security.After all, with the increasing trend of interconnection between devices, the information security of users is becoming a key point in the competition between operating systems, whether it is mobile phone, watch or PC.


Take the smartphone operating system as an example. Compared with iOS, android has a larger installed base, but its data security is a serious problem.By the end of the third quarter of 2018, more than 3.2 million new malware samples had been found on android, according to G DATA, a security research firm. On average, more than 11,000 new malware samples were found every day.


Recently, tencent security Cohen laboratory released the '2018 Android application security white paper', also further exposed the seriousness of Android system security problems.Tencent selected 1,404 apps among the top 100 most downloaded apps in 2018 for analysis from 14 types of apps including video and audio playback, communication and social networking, and news reading.The results showed that there were 1,381 apps with security problems, accounting for up to 98%, and 37,920 security problems were found.Only 23 security risks were not detected.


This widespread data security issue with android only adds to the significance of apple's 'Sign In withApple' at WWDC.The editors learned that 'Sign Inwith Apple' allows users to easily authenticate with an Apple ID in addition to using a social account, filling out a form, verifying an email or choosing a password, and that Apple will provide developers with a unique random ID to protect users' privacy.Even when developers choose to ask for a name and email address, users can still choose to keep their address private by sharing only one random email address.


Obviously, for users, this is a great news.But while it's good for users, it's also bad for developers who have long relied on the APP Store's user data.Be worth what carry is, just the past five months, apple ended a monopoly in the APP Store ruling, the ruling the judge in the vote, after apple 4:5 defeat, this means that developers and users either side still can Sue apple's APP Store monopoly (apple developer via the AppleStore charge 30% smoke into, is the unfair use of monopoly, harms the common interests of consumers and developers), was dismantled the potential risks to the APP Store.Now that WWDC is openly tilting the balance in apple's favor, developers are bound to continue to use that as a reason to launch fresh lawsuits against apple, plunging the App Store, apple's great hope, into a deeper crisis.


However, the editors believe that while apple will face challenges from developers in the short term, putting user data security at the top of the list will do more good than harm to the long-term development of apple's various product lines and user loyalty.After all, the application of ecological differentiation has been the biggest advantage of the iOS and android competition, but now android, regardless of the application of how to do optimization, under the condition of invariable infrastructure security ascension is an armchair strategist, which makes almost all android users will often encounter data information disclosure, harassment, malicious virus attacks and other issues, to ban repeatedly.The launch of iOS 13 'Sign In with Apple' can be said to further strengthen the differentiation degree of iOS system. Next, Apple only needs to make an issue of developers, such as giving some preferential conditions to gradually reconcile the contradiction, so as to make iOS truly superior to android and achieve real security and reliability.(coordinating editor: June)
