Apple is set to unveil a new privacy feature in iOS 18 that will allow users to lock individual apps using Face ID.

The feature is expected to work with built-in apps such as Mail, Notes, and Messages, requiring users to authenticate with Face ID before accessing the app’s contents. This will prevent unauthorized access to sensitive information even if the phone is unlocked.

This move by Apple aligns with the company’s continued focus on privacy and security, and it is expected to be a welcome addition for users who value the confidentiality of their personal data.

While the official announcement is expected at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) on Monday, the news has already generated excitement among iPhone users who have been looking for more granular control over app security.
