Apple unveiled new steps to make it hard for advertisers to distinguish among users, building on its effort, begun previous year, to prevent such tracking. But remember, these offers are for limited time only and they may get back to their original price at any time.

Google unveiled new Android usage tools last month, including a dashboard that shows users how much time they've spent on their phones and the ability to enable a do not disturb mode by simply facing the phone downward. That month, two shareholders wrote the company a letter asking it to address excessive cellphone use to help the mental health of minors.

Jana Partners applauded the changes.

The paradox emerged Monday as Apple executives previewed new versions of free software due out this fall.

In addition you can now hard press the Do Not Disturb button and set a time limit for how long you want to remain incommunicado during the day.

Even better yet, a users' video square will enlarge when they are speaking, and reduce in size when they are silent, making video chatting with so many people less confusing.

"Data companies are clever and relentless", Mr. Federighi said, adding that it will become "dramatically more difficult" for firms to track users through their devices.

The sources said the step would boost Apple's growing business selling promotional ads for search terms in its App Store, which delivered almost Dollars 1 billion in revenue past year. This works much the same as always, with one major difference - it hides notifications, so if you happen to look at your phone's clock in the night, you won't be hit with a barrage of message alerts.

Apple will encourage users to share photos with their friends by suggesting such opportunities in a new "for you" tab. It will also allow users to create emojis of themselves - animated cartoon likenesses - similar to those already announced by Facebook and Snap and rival smartphone maker Samsung.

"Apple's focus on social responsibility closely followed that of Google at (its developer conference) I/O and illustrates a new appreciation among the tech giants of their role in helping people manage their daily engagement with technology".
