iOS 10 won’t collect any more data on you unless you tell it to

iOS 10 won't collect any more data on you unless you tell it to

If you were tuned into our coverage of WWDC 2016 then you’ll know that iOS 10 is going to collect more data about its users to better personalise the mobile OS. Apple is adopting a technique it’s calling "differential privacy", where it will intelligently gather information without gaining access to anything personal or sensitive.

Metro Los Angeles Safety Videos
When I took Drivers Ed way back when, I remember being shown unusually graphic videos from the 1960s which depicted horrific scenes recorded in the aftermath of particularly gruesome accidents. The message was clear, if not a bit overdone: driving can be exceedingly dangerous and you better obey the rules of the road lest you wind up in a video like this. Perhaps looking to these videos for inspiration, Metro Los Angeles this week released five animated videos that illustrate all of the horrific things that can happen if you don’t respect the safety guidelines that govern train transit.
