By the end of this year, Apple will release iOS 16.2. The operating system will implement the function of advanced data protection Advanced Data Protection. Thanks to it, users will be able to send files to iCloud in encrypted form. This is reported by Futurism.

Only recipients and recipients of messages will be able to open encrypted files, since decryption keys will not be stored on the company’s servers. Thanks to this, neither attackers, law enforcement officers, nor the company itself will have access to the content uploaded to the cloud.

At the same time, the FBI categorically dislikes the innovation. They have already stated that it will interfere with countering criminals.

Bureau officials said the innovation would have a negative impact on the safety of Americans. They insist that law enforcement should have access to content from iCloud.

Apple previously abandoned technology to scan user vaults to look for child abuse.
