Apple says it will make a privacy change in Voice Memos by encrypting the titles of the recordings in iOS 17. The same change will also be observed in the iPadOS 17 and macOS Sonoma updates.

With this, aside from the recordings, the titles of these recordings stored in the iCloud will now also be protected. “Because of this additional encryption, when you update one of your Apple devices to iOS 17, iPadOS 17, or macOS Sonoma, your devices that you haven’t yet updated—with older versions of Voice Memos—may display the date and time of the recording (for example, ‘2023-08-11T07:53:31Z’) as the title, rather than the previous title of the recording.”

This is not the only section where privacy and security are getting extended. In a recent report, it was revealed that iOS 17 also now uses Face ID and Touch ID to protect the Private Browsing of Safari. Even if the iPhone is unlocked, authentication will still be required when the user selects the Private Browsing section, which reads “Private Browsing is Locked.” It won’t show any of the tabs it contains unless unlocked by Face ID or Touch ID. Users will also have to unlock the section again once they exit, so users can be sure that their browsing activities will not be viewed in the Private tab even if the unlocked iPhone is accessed by someone else.
