Video explaining the latest privacy features on iOS 14. They are so granular, you can permit access to just one photo to an app, instead of the entire gallery!

PS: I'm not supporting the wording used against Android. Please view it as iOS 14 privacy features that are worth being added into Android.

Microsoft Outlook app is snooping the clipboard. Whatever we copy is automatically pasted if we open Outlook.

iOS is very transparent now when it comes to privacy and tracking things.

Google hasn't updated its iOS apps since early December while still keeping its Android apps up to date, in what could be an attempt to avoid supplying information for the App Store's privacy nutrition labels.

YouTube's App Store listing showing a blank App Privacy section
Google has not made any updates to its apps running on iOS from December 8 onwards. The version history listings for major apps such as Gmail, YouTube, Google Drive, and other services all list their last updates as December 7, 2020 or earlier.
