Announced last month, the new safety features were intended for inclusion in iOS 15, iPadOS 15, watchOS and macOS Monterey. The first was a feature for monitoring the Messages application, with client-side machine learning implemented to scan and alert when sexually explicit images are sent, requiring input from the user of whether or not they want to view the material.
