Summary (IA Generated)

This new iOS 14 feature gives your iPhone a different MAC address every time it connects, making it much more difficult for this sort of tracking to work.

If you see a message about apps pasting clipboard information from other apps at the top of your iPhone screen, don’t panic: That’s just the new clipboard notification feature in iOS kicking into action.

If you’re using iOS 14, you should only see the notification when you actually choose to paste something inside an app, in which case the app obviously needs access to the clipboard.

Another change in iOS 14 is that apps will have to specifically request permission to track you across other apps and sites.

For now, you can head to Privacy then Tracking from the iOS Settings menu, and you’ll find a toggle switch for whether you want apps to be able to request permission to track you outside of the actual app itself.

As the tracking screen in iOS itself notes, apps that you don’t give permission to might still try to track you, as per their individual privacy policies.

One iOS 14 feature that Apple has announced for iOS 14, but which hasn’t yet gone live, is app privacy cards.

Presumably developers need a bit more time to get their apps in order—the feature isn’t visible at the time of writing—but when it does appear, you should see a new App Privacy button on each of the listings inside the App Store.
