TechCrunch’s Sarah Perez runs down all that’s currently known about the Sign In with Apple system announced at WWDC last week. The biggest question seems to be whether or not this will attract the attention of regulators who are already looking at big tech companies, including Apple. But, from a user perspective, it’s hard not to argue this is great.
It’s also a strategically brilliant move by Apple, as I mentioned in my Macworld column last week: every time someone logs in with Apple’s service as opposed to, say, Facebook’s or Google’s, those companies lose out on your valuable personal information. That’s a pretty big blow for them, especially if it starts to happen in large volumes.
