Jonathan Zdziarski is right. Apple does have back doors and surveillance mechanisms in iOS devices. In turn, that data is sold to 3rd party companies.
Apple also conspired to fix ebook pricing and has to pay $450 million dollars.
Apple also infringes on a patent which uses speech recognition software in such products as the iPhone and iPad.
Thank you Steve! Apple's business practices directly reflect the levels of your leadership model.
What idiots if a government wants your information they will get it. You can't stop them. By the way I don't think any us company is free from cia
Apple has been very vocal about it's user date privacy. The most secure mobile OS in the world has a reputation to uphold.
Besides, if an agency wanted to hack your phone, they would find a way to do it anyway.
It doesn't matter because if somebody sue you with data from your iphone or ipad you can sue Apple too for not being what they say they are
The NSA, GCHQ and presumably every other government with the capability already has access to every iOS and Android device out there. How is this different from anything else we've been hearing about?
If you need to have an intelligence agency to hack your phone then your data is pretty safe. There is no hackproof anything but if others need to go to such trouble to access your data, they either won't do it or you have bigger trouble on your hands.
And of course, if it was open sourced, you'd be taking every developer's word on data privacy for it with every app you install
