We saw some speed tests of iOS 12.2 earlier today, the software is expected to land next month and now there is some more information on what is included in the update.
According to Apple’s WebKit Blog there will be an updated Intelligent Tracking feature in the Safari 12.1 which is coming with iOS 12.2.
The beta releases of iOS 12.2 and Safari 12.1 on macOS High Sierra and Mojave include an updated version of Intelligent Tracking Prevention (ITP). For purposes of developer communication, we’ll refer to it as ITP 2.1.
Previous versions of ITP allowed domains that were classified with tracking capabilities to store partitioned cookies, i.e. additional sets of cookies keyed off of the top site. As of ITP 2.1, partitioned cookies are no longer supported and third-parties classified with cross-site tracking capabilities now have to use the Storage Access API to get any cookie access.
Apple is expected to release their new iOS 12.2 software some time in March as soon as we get some details on when it will land, we will let you guys know.
