In the interview, the vice president of marketing Apple, Bob Borchers, and the product manager Ronak Shah spoke of the latest innovations introduced by Apple with macOS Big Sur. The two have confirmed the great attention of Apple to security and privacy.

We have a story of pioneering on the protection of the privacy of the users in Safari. This year, with the Privacy Report, we are raising the awareness of users on Safari, protects them, and we are making very simple, with a single click, allow users to see which trackers are blocked while you surf the Web.

We also are improving the extensions and now we will support the new Web API Extension. This means that, for a whole range of extensions already available, developers will be able to take them easily on Safari. We even provide tools in Xcode to help facilitate this.

Ronak Shah has stressed that the purpose of the new function of the Privacy Report is to make users more aware of the monitoring by the websites while browsing on Safari:

We do this from time to the account of the user. We have introduced for the first time the Intelligent Tracking Prevention in 2017, so we are blocking this type of third-party monitoring for some time. We want to increase this awareness and let users know what is happening, providing them with information that makes them more aware of the tracking that is being attempted while they browse the Web. Then, with a click, they can see the tracker you are trying to find them on the current Web site, or you can get more information and to see the tracker in the last 30 days.

Other new features in Safari include the home page which is customizable, a new card management, translation, integrated, and much more.
