Remember Apple previously announced that it would scan the albums of iPhone users to combat child abuse? Here’s an update: Apple is gonna delay this.
On Friday, Apple said it would delay its plan and work on the system for a few more months to improve it before releasing it to the public… after receiving tons of feedbacks (mostly negative – as we can imagine 🙃).
- What? Most people believed the album scanning is at odds with Apple’s privacy promise.
- Some users even view this as a primary reason for using iPhone… In other words, if Apple is gonna do this, they would consider switching to other phones.
We are still unsure when and how Apple will introduce it again. At least for now, it won’t scan our album.
