Ever been caught off-guard by an unsolicited and highly unwelcome snap of someone’s junk? Well, Apple’s latest iOS 17 update is relieving our eyeballs from any, ahem, jump scares!
With the new update, if someone tries to send you an unsolicited d**k or t*t pic, your phone will flick you a notification as a heads-up that you’re about to open a nudie-rudie snap.
When the notification pops up, you can delete that ish faster than you can say, “red effing flag”. There is also the option to ‘show’ the image, but let’s be real, how many of us actually want to see a surprise close-up of someone’s neither region?
“You now have the option to blur sensitive photos and videos before you choose to view them. This feature will be available in Messages, AirDrop, Contact Posters in the Phone app, FaceTime messages, and third-party apps,” Apple explained in a statement.
Of course, this feature is totally optional, so if you’re into that sort of thing or maybe you love a good lil NSFW surprise from your boo thang, you can totally keep this feature turned off.
Don’t worry, Siri won’t be catching a glimpse at the absolute sights popping up on your screen while she plays our personal bouncer for incoming messages.
Apple promises that all the image and video processing happens right on your device. No sneaky peeks from Apple or any third parties. Phew!
Though, whatever you decide to choose we all have to give a round of applause to Apple for giving us the option to save our eyes from yet another peep show.
That’s some hero sh*t!
I’m all for embracing a safer, more delightful experience and making our digital lives a whole lot less...well, awkward!
