    27 days ago - By TechCrunch

    Apple has refreshed and expanded its privacy website , a month after its most recent iPhone and Mac launches.
    You're not going to see much change from previous years - the privacy pages still state the same commitments that Apple's long held, like that privacy is a “fundamental human right” and that your information is largely on your iPhones, iPads and Macs. And, now with a bevy of new security and privacy features in iOS 12 and macOS Mojave, the pages are updated to include new information about end-to-end encrypted group FaceTime video calls and improvements to intelligence tracking...
