Apple details painted a new scheme for resource for developers. Now all the applications that support login with Google accounts, Facebook or Twitter, must include in the list the option “Sign in with Apple”.

Beta innovations plans to launch in the summer. Once that happens, developers will be able to test a new feature in their apps.
