Apple may not have started as a privacy-first company, but it certainly has shifted that way over the years. That focus on privacy has shown up in various forms — from going toe-to-toe with the FBI to using differential privacy practices in basically every native app on its platform. The same can’t be said for Android and Google.
It’s not impossible to tailor an Android to be a privacy- and security-focused device. But if you go with iOS, a strong emphasis on keeping your data to yourself is already baked into the platform. And Apple is continually adding privacy features to its platform. In the era of data leaks and app spying, that’s a massive boon for many users.
