Apple and Privacy

Apr 28, 2021

If Apple really cared about iOS privacy they would give the user to ability to block any app from reaching the internet. A lot of the iOS apps I used have no need to ping the internet but they all do to gather metrics and do who-knows-what.

Rather than create a complex and unenforceable privacy policy Apple should just let users block the app from using the internet. Or require a certificate to access the internet and don't allow it if the fundamental use of the app isn't to connect to the internet. There is no need for single player games to hit the internet all the time.

I use Little Snitch on the Mac and everything f**king program tries to connect to the internet. I block them all and only a handful fail so, yeah, they don't need to.

If Apple really cared about my privacy they would do this.
