As per reports, Apple (AAPL) is introducing its controversial protections for children on iPhones in the UK, referred to by the company as “expanded protections for children” and lives within the Messages app on iOS, iPadOS, WatchOS, and macOS. Already launched in the US, the feature will now be coming to the UK in a software update in the coming weeks.
The feature scans the messages of children and looks for images that contain nudity. If found, it will issue a warning to children about what they are receiving or sending, offering them extra information or the ability to message someone they trust for help. The feature when turned on, the Messages app uses artificial intelligence to watch for images that appear to contain nudity. That processing happens on the device, and neither the pictures nor warnings are uploaded to Apple. The feature has proven controversial since it was first announced in August. Apple made some tweaks to the way the feature worked since its initial announcement and says that it is built to preserve the privacy of young people.
