About the privacy
The talk about iPhone is that it is the best phone to have if you want to maintain your privacy. But the company actually tracks all its users and it has been proven by two security researchers, Tommy Mysk and Talal Haj. They took a look at the data collected by the Apple apps.“The level of detail is shocking for a company like Apple,” Mysk told Gizmodo.
They found out that the Apple store collected information about everything the user including whatever they searched for, keyboard languages, and every other intricate detail about the user’s activity on the phone.
“Opting out or switching the personalization options off did not reduce the amount of detailed analytics that the app was sending,” Mysk said. “I switched all the possible options off, namely personalized ads, personalized recommendations, and sharing usage data and analytics.” “I expected from a company like Apple, which believes that privacy is a fundamental human right, to collect more generic analytics,” Mysk said.
