Apple’s vice president of software engineering, Craig Federighi, is due to present his keynote address at this year’s Web Summit, to be held in November in Lisbon, Portugal.
As stated on the Portuguese website iFeed, The Web Summit recently updated its website with more information on the Federighi appearance, which was announced earlier in October.
According to the conference, the CEO of Apple’s software should hold a 25-minute main session on product privacy and security on November 3, the third night of work. Federighi will speak at the summit’s main venue, the Altice Arena.
Not much is known about the main word, although the topics of discussion are likely to include various Apple privacy initiatives such as transparency of app tracking, “nutrition labels” in the App Store, and security on the device.
The Web Summit runs from November 1-4 and includes a number of influential speakers from the worlds of technology, media, entertainment, sports, commerce and beyond. Executives from companies such as Amazon, Cisco, Facebook, Magic Leap, Microsoft, Reddit, SAP, Spotify and Shutterstock will talk about a variety of topics, and some will join reporters from Atlantic,, Axios,, CNBC,, Financial Times,, Reuters,, Washington Post and another for a series of sitting conversations.
The conference will be opened by Frances Haugen, a former Facebook employee who leaked to the public with damn internal documents and testified to state bodies about the allegedly malicious business practices of the social network.
The Web Summit regularly hosts members of the European Commission of the European Union and has in the past served as a stage for antitrust talks. Although no significant announcements are expected, the conference sessions could lead to the antitrust supervisor coming into his hands. EU Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager hinted at an investigation into Apple Pay in 2019, an investigation that has since evolved into a serious threat to the future of the service.
