Several companies are media and advertising antitrust filed a complaint against Apple with the Federal cartel office in Germany. Since the introduction of iOS 14.5, Apple’s fifth data protection regulations. These companies fear that their business is worse, the abuse of accused Apple: Apple’s in their offices that are susceptible to this, it is probably similar rules, with occasional contribution to the unfair competitive advantage.
Eight companies that filed antitrust complaint against Apple to date. For they themselves see that it is not vulnerable, or it is contentiously. 14.5 iOS and when they want to be or app developer license iOS users in different offices and websites of investigation without it. For many, this fear of these users by way of objection, and in particular for the sake of some end and purpose the great consumer technology.
The secret of the pain, to be released out of the new offices of the design firm Lake
The accusation hurled by these companies (comprising Central Association of the German Advertising Industry Zaw and the Organization of the Media Institute OMG, as well as publishing associations BDZV and VdZ with others), and Apple may prompt services to be freed these new data protection schemes.
The essence is to remove all competition from the board game in one fell swoop, to prevent other mining commercially relevant information to users on Apple’s ecosystem. Apple would imagine significant amounts of collecting information about the user experience is returning. More infamous, do not you think?
Second Tagesschau.de: Apple strongly occurred, because it believes that the accusation “privacy is a fundamental human right.” The latter belongs to users information on able to decide how they want to be in, and let the knowledge of them; And by whom. The government agencies also cited Apple’s support given by the patrons secret where I worked this feature.
14.5, which launched in the iOS News, April 26, 2021
Apple iOS rolled out strict privacy Policies in the next update and ipad. The rollout kicked off yesterday and will be surprised if your iPhone with iOS update will be greater if we accept that we have looked at 14,5 update the iOS game.
For app developers, this is the worst hear his cause. Ravish personalized so that the ads for the users, it will not be obtain prior permission. And not only from the advertisers have recently been covered as much as this loophole: and power was given more often they are the same as a guard to brokers. Such information brokers can collect up to 5,000 items of data to a single user – and it usually does not, without the consent of their knowledge, experience and what are the respective apps.
The last sentence in my art now is a blessing and a curse?
A new “App Mauris Bright” (AU) framework carries many potential benefits to users, so much is clear. On the other hand, the risk also poses many industries – including us as NextPit.
However, in my opinion, it is necessary that there should be a new, except in the better handling of us is given. The practice which, for the last decade on the web so it can continue. We need another way to deal with us has been given. But this is a thing in our lives can be a great and grim like the societies of each database so immense that there is $ 100 billion, with frightening, even over them he who does the work of saving money every year and I not care.
Indeed, if the abuse was only silently Apple then monetize given to us. Apple’s business model to sell, there is no information, but – in addition – the selling price of hardware is usually well above its competition and so on.

Apple’s Apple products are always knows who is who, but always asks if you want to share data anonymously to improve your use of carrots or if you want to share your location. Sensitive, personal information is directly sent to Apple, remains encrypted on the iPhone and the iPad.
So, I’m curious to see the reaction of the authorities, which is why, by the way, since the study nonchalant complaint antitrust “you’ll never take a look than before.” Users for us, I hope in the Wild Wild West era of data collection is above. for us in the media industry, hopefully we can think of better business models and the newer building.
