What you need to know

  • Apple has published a new video highlighting pricy on the iPhone.
  • The video claims that there is now more private information on our phones than in our homes.
  • Also says privacy should be simple, straightforward and understood.

A new Apple video published to YouTube has highlighted privacy on the iPhone, saying that it has never been more important.

The video states:

Right now there is more private information on your phone than in your home. Think about that.

The description reads:

We believe your privacy should never be something you have to question. It should be simple, straightforward, and understood.

Whilst Apple has always highlighted privacy and security as a feature of the iPhone, the video comes in the wake of several privacy gaffs from some of Apple's competitors. Recently it was revealed that a security flaw in the Samsung Galaxy S10 meant that if you applied a third-party screen protector, the device could be unlocked using any fingerprint. Google also came under fire after it was revealed that its brand new Pixel 4 did not have an eyes open option for its Face Unlock feature, meaning that someone could theoretically point your phone at your face whilst you were asleep to unlock it.
