Every iPhone user should check out Apple's updated privacy website today

A woman walks past advertising for the new iPhone 11 smartphone at an Apple store. The company has just released new whitepapers on privacy

Previously, if you looked at that URL, you'd find Apple's generic statement about how it protected your personal information, followed by a bunch of info in a confusing order, with a hard-to-read two-column layout on any but the skinniest of window sizes.

While Apple has had its recent missteps in this area, it's been fairly quick to correct them, and in some cases even these reports have been overblown in terms of how much identifiable data Apple was actually collecting.

As with previous years, the updated privacy pages now include all of the new privacy and security features in iOS 13 and macOS Catalina, which Apple released earlier this year, including Safari anti-tracking, location awareness and contact notes protections. "At Apple, it's also one of our core values".

Roku Shares Crater Despite Reporting In-Line Revenue Results
The company reported ($0.22) earnings per share for the quarter, topping the consensus estimate of ($0.28) by $0.06. Rational Advisors LLC purchased a new stake in shares of Roku in the 3rd quarter valued at approximately $780,000.

This year, however, Apple is getting down to brass tacks and sharing some very specific examples to help the average user understand what it's doing to address common privacy concerns in the apps you use each and every day. Your devices are important to so many parts of your life. So if you ever wonder how Apple's Maps apps can get you from point A to B without the company ever knowing those movements belong to you specifically, or just what exact privacy threats its Safari browser is keeping you safe from, Apple's newly designed privacy website will let you discover that information in a flash.

Photos: The Photos app uses machine learning to organize photos right on your device. However, how Apple presents them has seen a fundamental change.

Siri: Your Apple ID isn't connected to Siri, and your requests are associated with a random identifier.

The privacy portal also contains links to detailed white papers, but it is largely an exercise in giving users access to information in an understandable form.
