Apple today announced Sign In With Apple at WWDC, allowing users to log in to apps and services using your Apple ID in a highly secure manner.

Apple is releasing a new API to allow developers to add the new sign-in function to their apps for a more convenient way of logging in using Face ID without revealing additional personal information

When logging in users can choose to reveal or hide their email address, or get Sign In With Apple to generate a unique random, anonymous email address that can be managed for specific apps, giving users more control of their data.

The new sign-in feature is coming with Apple's new operating systems this fall and will be available across macOS, iOS, and through websites.

I can't see companies adopting this as the reason a lot of sites want users to sign in with facebook is to harvest data.
I hope i'm wrong.

I love the shade they were throwing at Facebook and Google. This focus on privacy is what keeps me coming back to Apple products, even if they’re expensive.

I think you have that backwards. Facebook/Google wants to harvest data. The companies adopting Facebook/Google sign-in API is because they want users, and using that API reduces the friction of getting users substantially.
