Apple is fighting back against a report that it compromises user privacy in China.
A new report from the New York Times says that Apple has made concessions with the Chinese government that make it "nearly impossible for the company to stop the Chinese government from gaining access" to its user's data.
In response to the report, Apple says that it still controls the keys that protect the data of users in China and that the company also isolates its data centers in China from the rest of the iCloud network.
