iPadOS: The 5 TOP security features for your iPad

iPadOSThe new functional system for iPad, iPadOS, brings many new features to its tablets Apple, which promote the safety. Apple offers new security features as it knows that there are many threats today.

The company announced the release of the new operating system at the World Developers Conference in June. It is now available as It's free information software for iPad Air 2, iPad Mini, Pad Pros, 2017 iPad, 2018 iPad and iPad Mini 4.

IPadOS comes with many security features, which they give to users the ability to control the number of information that the various have access to applications. It also allows users to share their photos online without sharing private metadata. Finally, there is more protection of personal data when users log on to third-party applications.

Here are the top 5 security features offered by iPadOS:

Checking licenses

The new operating system allows control the permissions required by applications. With this feature, users will know what kind of information an application has access to and will put a brake on applications that ask for infinite empty, without the need.

With the new feature, when an application requests permission to access the site, three options will be presented:

  1. Allow site access when using the app
  2. Allow it once
  3. Do not allow at all

The Location Services menu in the "Privacy" section of "iPadOS Settings" now allows you to check all application privacy settings and revoke or change the permissions requested by applications.

Share photos safely

Another useful feature in the new operating system is the ability to share photos without making them known data location. Users will be able to share photos via messaging, social media or e-mail with greater security.

This can be done very easily. Users can choose the image they want to share from the Photos app. Then, they click on "Options" at the top of the screen and turn off "Location".

Bluetooth snoops

Unfortunately, disabling an app's permissions does not protect 100% site data. This is because application can take advantage of Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, through other licenses and thus gain access to location information.

Bluetooth is one of the most important threats, since they can take advantage of it hackers to damage victims' devices. The new feature of iPadOS allows users to control the applications they have access on Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

Sign in with Apple

The tool Sign in with Apple takes care of the protection of users' personal data. The tool uses Apple ID (instead of email address or social media logins) to verify them credentials when connecting to applications.

If a user wants to sign in to an app or online game they are unsure of, they can use Sign in with Apple and not their credentials. In addition, Apple ID is protected by two-factor authentication, which enhances security.


Apple's smart home platform is becoming more and more popular. So the company decided to upgrade its security features HomeKit and provide better security management.

This means that users will be able to control how smart devices communicate with each other and therefore what kind of data is being transferred. This is necessary now that IoT attacks is so common.
