iOS 10 Security Changes Slide Deck

I hosted an online Tech Talk on October 19th about the security & privacy changes introduced in iOS 10. I talked about both user-facing and developer-facing changes that I thought were interesting. The last section also provides some guidelines on how to be ready for the App Transport Security requirements that Apple will start enforcing on January 2017.

You can download the slide deck here.

As I was preparing the presentation, I discovered that the Apple documentation about App Transport Security has changed significantly over the last couple months. For example, ATS exemptions for third-party domains (such as NSThirdPartyExceptionAllowsInsecureHTTPLoads) have been removed from the documentation, implying that developers can just use the regular exemptions even for third-party domains.

Hence, the slide deck contains the most up-to-date information about iOS 10 and ATS, but I will update the previous blogs posts with these additional changes.
