Apple is spearheading a new and very ambitious social integration kit for the iOS. As part of this new social networking design, the same team that brought Final Cut Pro and iMovie to Apple users are now working on iOS’ own version of Snapchat.
This project is in such an early stage the team did not decide on a name for the app. Development of this definitely-not-Snapchat app focuses on a design that enables users to efficiently record quality video and then quickly and easily apply filters or drawings in the post-record editing, all with just one hand. The entire recording, editing, and upload process should be quick enough to take less than a minute if the users choose to.
The current prototype records videos in a square-shape resolution, just like Instagram. As soon as the video is done uploading, users will get the options to share the videos over several staple social networks or directly to their contacts.
And here is where the new social integration kit for the iOS starts to show up.
The When & How of the Social Integration Kit
It is worth to mention that no matter how ambitious the Apple teams are with the whole project, it can still be denied. If the their new social integration kit for the iOS proves to be a risk in regards to user privacy by exposing too much personal data, it will get the boot.
As social media networks continue to expand, their layers of security begin to stretch. With increased public exposure comes increased chance to get taken down by an ambitious hacker or team.
Apple, of course, is no exception. In August 2014, the world found out that Apple’s cloud storage service, iCloud, had a few security vulnerabilities. Hackers got into iCloud and made some very intimate celebrity photos public.
Ever since, Apple has been working hard on reinforcing the iOS but with news of a new social integration kit emerging, aspirant hackers are bound to test their skills.
