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.
Speaking to Re/code, Apple has clarified a little bit more about how this differential privacy is going to work in the next version of iOS. First of all, it’s going to be completely opt-in – if you want to let Apple collect data on you in this way, then you’re going to have to flick a switch that says so.
Secondly, there are four specific types of data Apple is collecting to begin with: new words added to local dictionaries, emojis typed by users, deep links used inside apps (and marked for public indexing) and lookup hints within notes.
