  • Apple Updates Privacy Web Site to Keep Users in the Loop With How Information is Used

    On Tuesday, Apple made some changes to its Privacy Web site to update users on how their information is used. Apple has long been very transparent in terms of what it does with information, and continues to insist that any information collected by users is still just used for product development, improving features, and fixing problems.

    What's more is Apple says they've never once built a back-door for government agencies to get into their systems, and notes that it never will, but assuming those agencies have the proper documentation from a court, Apple will comply and hand over requested information upon request, as Apple notes they "require that it be accompanied by the appropriate legal documents such as a subpoena or search warrant."

    The updated Web site has been released post iOS 9 so that users understand how their information is being used in terms of Apple's latest new features in the mobile world, as well as in OS X and/or watchOS. With Apple Pay and Touch ID becoming more prominent in Apple-only features, as well as third-party applications, security risks are always present, which is why Apple chooses to be honest with their customers.

    The Privacy Web site is split into three major sections: Privacy and Your Device, Respecting Your Information, and Our Partners and Privacy. These sections will enlighten users on what information is collected, and for what purposes. From there, users can choose whether or not to use Apple's services before they actually agree to using them.
