- Web Push
Notification even if the user does not currently have the site open(oof). This is what apple says about the privacy aspect of this:
Both the WebKit open source project and Apple treat privacy as a fundamental human right. As with other privileged features of the web platform, requesting a push subscription requires an explicit user gesture. It also requires you set the
userVisibleOnlyflag to true, and fulfill that promise by always showing a notification in response to a push message.
The Web Push API is not an invitation for silent background runtime, as that would both violate a user’s trust and impact a user’s battery life.
Violations of the
userVisibleOnlypromise will result in a push subscription being revoked.
- Rapid Security Response
- Security improvements can be applied automatically between normal updates.
- Lockdown Mode
- For very small number of users who face grave, targeted threats to their digital security
- Hardens your device’s defences and strictly limits certain functions, sharply reducing the attack surface that could potentially be exploited by highly targeted mercenary spyware.

- The Network Locations feature was removed
- Note: only applies to portable Mac computers with Apple silicon.
- USB and Thunderbolt accessories require user approval before the accessory can communicate
with macOS for connections wired directly to the USB-C port.
