If you live and play in the Apple world, you need only trust Apple. This is what Apple tells us — it’s a ‘feature’ of the Apple ecosystem.
The fact is, that in this instance, Apple broke that trust.
Let’s not forget Apple is just a company trying to make money selling electronic devices. If we techies make such a big deal about each and every instance of possible privacy infringement, we will eventually be supporting governments in their lockdown on our devices.
Trust is a word that should not be used with care.
