I have to give it to Apple, they seem to be one of the only mega-corporations willing to screw over other large businesses to protect their customers. App tracking transparency, precision location control, machine learning tracking prevention, now this.. it just gets better and better every year. There's a lot to dislike about them, but they really are one of the only large companies championing individual privacy.

Just downloaded iOS 17. Not dev nor beta.

It would be extra nice if you could turn this on for non private browsing but it’s still nice to see it happen

>It can even be enabled for regular Safari browsing. On the iPhone, open the Settings app, tap Safari → Advanced → Advanced Tracking and Fingerprinting Protection, and select All Browsing. Users can also turn off the feature in this menu if they prefer not to use it at all.

Enjoy it while it lasts. Tracking companies will probably start signing or obfuscating URLs.
