As usual, Apple has introduced several products and updates that will be coming later this year in their annual WWDC conference. However, the company announced that iOS 11 will remove system level integration for some of the most popular third party services including Facebook and Twitter.
This new announcement comes as a surprise given that the company has offered third party integration for a long period of time. The company first enabled such service back in 2011 with Twitter and Facebook in 2012. However, with the latest beta of iOS, the company has removed settings integration for Vimeo, Flickr along with Facebook and Twitter.
The company revealed that it will no longer allow third party social networking apps to access user’s information stored in the device. The release notes said, “Social accounts have been removed from Settings iOS 11. Third-party apps no longer have access to those signed-in accounts.”
With the third party login credentials, users could log into third-party applications and services as long as they had their credentials stored in the device.
