can the "apple cares about your privacy" meme please stop
their actions are not reflecting it at all, they're just doing some clever PR without any real technical or social change
they're not decentralizing anything, they're still forcing their proprietary app store and push notification system onto users (with all the boundless terribleness that entails)
they're not allowing rooting(well, jailbreaking) out of the box
they seem to have no intention to truly give their customers any control over their device and with that any semblance of privacy
(do not read this as "Android is better", because that isn't what i said, that's just a whole different can of terribleness)
I know I'm guilty of expecting anything I "need" to solve a multitude of problems it has nothing to do with. Planners have been no exception. I think I've tried all of them and this post sums up the experience quite well. https://www.becomingminimalist.com/planner/

"There's no real consequences to all the data though" or "I like the manipulation [advertising]." No, most won't ever be in a position to suffer like this family, but many will. https://www.zdnet.com/article/a-data-breach-forced-this-family-to-move-home-and-change-their-names/
It amazes me how much more content and concern I see out of the UK, as they prepare for national suicide with #Brexit, than with the US with regards to #DataPrivacy. I would guess, at this point, about 80% of privacy content is from the UK, %10 from the EU and 10% from everywhere else. The US is going to lose in this arena and, no one cares. Even bringing it up is liable to get one laughed at.
