Because Apple has a shit privacy policy and only poorfags will care about this level of "wealth".

Lel, privacy and Apple.

If you're not too dumb for your $1k, read:

- Do you agree with this definition of non-private? The guarantees are as weak as "won't include your IP address" [hint, it might include the device ID] and " occupation, language, zip code, area code, unique device identifier, referrer URL, location, and the time zone" does not as such identify you, I guess we're good to use that shit in any way we please.

Also everything as long as it doesn't include the IP address:
>We may collect and store details of how you use our services, including search queries. This information may be used to improve the relevancy of results provided by our services. Except in limited instances to ensure quality of our services over the Internet, such information will not be associated with your IP address.
[This is non-personal information, eh. Can be used for everything.]

Oh and BTW, the remaining private data? Yea, we can sell that in "a sale" or a "reorganization" or just release that if there is some "issue of public importance" where it is "appropriate".

Google actually isn't half as bad as that, and I don't want to call them good about privacy by any means.

If you're not using a phone with actual linux, you're just carrying botnet with you.

If you're using a device with a baseband, you're carrying botnet with you.

How much are they paying you for the marketing campaign?

>> No.65404514

PS: Admittedly, that was more of a brain dump than a smooth pitch... but just read that fucking policy for starters.

They are basically saying they can use everything you do for everything they want with the most superficial limits on use.

>> No.65404523

used an iPhone 7 plus for a year right when it came out. iOS is a laggy jittery mess now and Apple doesn't give a shit to fix it. the ux is seriously a fucking joke. even first party widgets would fucking break or refuse to reload on their own, it's just a shitty experience in general compared to Android.

>> No.65404524

This, even if you install LineageOS and use only FOSS apps, you can still be tracked via GSM.
At the moment there is absolutely no way to have a fully botnet-free mobile phone.

>> No.65404546

Phones aren't worth that money in general. Unless you plan to use them as your main computer and hook them up to TVs like galaxy s8/9 or Librem 5.

>> No.65404638

You're not safe against the state actor surveillance, no.

But maybe you can prevent having everything you do with your "customer activities on our website, iCloud services, our iTunes Store, App Store, Mac App Store, App Store for Apple TV and iBooks Stores and from our other products and services" end up in a marketing agency's hands when Apple decides to hold a "sale" (or a "reorganization, merger").

Or them generally selling and sharing your "non-personal" -everything like "occupation, language, zip code, area code, unique device identifier, referrer URL, location, and the time zone"- with and to whoever they care. Oh, and "search queries", too. Plus aggregated information regarding customer activities on our website, iCloud services, our iTunes Store, App Store, Mac App Store, App Store for Apple TV and iBooks Stores and from our other products and services.

You could avoid that one.

Exactly, welcome to the future. For anyone who doesn't do work on their computer it's more than enough. So, any child, elder and most adults.

>track my location
The baseband has privileged hardware access and can potentially read memory, disk, and other plaintext data in transit:
>Today's phones come with two separate processors: one is a general-purpose applications processor that runs the main operating system, e.g. Android; the other, known as the modem, baseband, or radio, is in charge of communications with the mobile telephony network. This processor always runs a proprietary operating system, and these systems are known to have backdoors that make it possible to remotely convert the modem into a remote spying device. The spying can involve activating the device's microphone, but it could also use the precise GPS location of the device and access the camera, as well as the user data stored on the phone. Moreover, modems are connected most of the time to the operator's network, making the backdoors nearly always accessible
>we discovered that the proprietary program running on the applications processor in charge of handling the communication protocol with the modem actually implements a backdoor that lets the modem perform remote file I/O operations on the file system
Basically a hardware-level rootkit given its black-box nature. But of course you're right, removing tracking from the OS and regaining control is beneficial.

Every day. Every fucking day, this thread pops up. You all know someone is getting paid to post these threads. Stop taking the fucking bait. Sage and report.

>> No.65405041

Definitely bad. Though not every phone has the same (or a Samsung) modem, baseband, or radio, right? So maybe whoever put this in place didn't get every phone.

And this should be more of a tool for state actors regardless. I don't think the average phone company / ISP / ... can legally use this for their own purposes, right?

PS: You'd probably instinctively think it's equally bad with Google. But nope, it isn't. They far more limit data use.


The only thing I see they can just broadly use is data that:

Funnily working in a phone store where we sell iPhones and Android phones I've seen a record number of iPhone users switching to Samsung Galaxy S9. Does anybody know why? Did something happen to Apple or does the Galaxy S9 appeal to this crowd?
