Apple’s iOS 15.2 update to introduce Nudity detection for children’s messages

Apple’s iOS 15.2 update, which will be released soon, is likely to include a number of new features. According to a Bloomberg email from Mark Gurman,

Apple’s iOS 15.2 release will have the ability to check for nude photographs received to or from children in the Messages applications.

Apple has previously announced the change as part of new kid safety features.

Apple had previously disclosed a plan to scan iCloud images for child sexual abuse material (CSAM), which sparked a backlash from privacy advocates and forced a postponement of the service’s rollout.

Apple has yet to announce when its CSAM detection capability will be available.

According to the study, the nudity detecting feature in the Messages app for children’s devices.

Once activated, the functionality will use the Messages app to analyze incoming and outgoing photographs in devices owned by minors to detect nudity.

If a nude picture is found, the image will be obscured and the youngster will be informed before seeing it.

Additionally, youngsters who attempt to transmit explicit photographs will be cautioned.

In the event that such a circumstance arises, children will be able to contact their parents using the Messages app, but parents will not be notified immediately.

This implies that parents must allow the function on a family-sharing account for it to work.

According to the source, the camera app will also gain a new option that will allow users to deactivate the iPhone from automatically triggering the macro lens, which is a much-needed feature.

In addition, the update will include a new privacy report tool that will allow users to see which of their applications accessed key services like as location, camera, and more.
