Report: Apple's iOS update may impact Facebook messaging apps

Apple Inc. will make changes on its mobile operating system that will affect apps such as Facebook Inc.'s Messenger and WhatsApp Inc., The Information reported.

The iOS update will restrict messaging apps to run a calling feature in the background when not in use and may compel companies such as Facebook to tweak its messaging apps, the report said, citing two sources.

Currently, the background feature allows apps to connect calls faster and carry out other tasks such as data collection. Once Apple restricts background access, it will reportedly be used only for internet calls.

A Facebook spokesperson said the company is in talks with Apple to address the matter. "To be clear: We are using the PushKit VoIP API to deliver a world-class private-messaging experience, not for the purpose of collecting data," the spokesperson added.

During the Worldwide Developers Conference in June, Apple cited the need for privacy protection and performance improvement in its devices when a change to the internet calling feature was discussed.

App developers have until April 2020 to meet the new specifications. Meanwhile, the changes will take effect in September when Apple rolls out iOS 13, the report said.
