How to save money on Apple’s next iPhones
A new feature that lets you keep track of your Mac’s data storage has raised eyebrows.
Salesforce Lightning Components has just launched a free account that lets users track their data storage and download new apps.
It’s a welcome step in the right direction for users looking to save on Apple products, but there are still plenty of people who want more control over their data.
“I’m sure there will be people who are really concerned that there’s a lack of control over data usage,” Salesforce VP and CEO Kevin Lee said.
The free account lets users download apps and services that they normally wouldn’t use and has the option to buy more.
Lee said he hopes users will continue to use the account as a way to monitor their data usage.
“Our mission is to make data and data management easy and easy to manage, and we’re seeing that we’ve got a lot of users who really want more controls on how they manage their data,” Lee said, noting that users can also use the service to download apps that they’ve never used before.
Salesforce is working with the company that makes the Lightning, and Lee said the Lightning software is available to users who have paid a $29.99 upgrade fee.
To make sure your data isn’t being used for other uses, users will need to create an account to save it, which can be done through the app.
Lee said Salesforce had been working with Apple on data management features for the last few years and that this was a big milestone.
“This is really a first step in our journey to really create a new platform for our customers,” Lee told ABC News.
For now, Salesforce users will be able to see how much data they’ve downloaded and whether the apps they have installed are downloading too much.
A free account costs $9.99 per month, but the company is encouraging users to subscribe for $19.99 to continue using the service.
Lee added that the company plans to make the Lightning account even more secure and to offer better customer service, such as allowing users to upload screenshots of their usage.
You can also access data using the Salesforce account.
Apple hasn’t provided a way for users to view their data, but Lee said that will be coming in a future version of the Lightning application.
Users who download the free account will also be able access a dashboard where they can see how many downloads and downloads per month they’ve made.
Users will also see more granular information about their data use and will be prompted to enable some features when using the Lightning app.
Users can opt to download the Lightning App to their Mac, or use the app to view a list of all their installed apps.
Users also have the option of paying a monthly fee for the account to use more data.
Salescare said that the Lightning accounts are available for $59.99 a year, which is about $30 more than a traditional Apple account.
Salesforce Lightning will be available in the US and Canada in early 2018.
