With the digitalizing world, the number of people defrauded through social media has also increased. Especially recently, while trust in all platforms regarding privacy has been declining, Apple has also attracted attention with an extremely striking claim.
A study by two researchers revealed that several apps are still following users even though Apple has turned off the “data sharing” feature of its users.
Researchers viewed data being sent simultaneously using two hail-broken iPhones running iOS 14.6 and iOS 16 operating systems. In the research, the data sharing feature was turned off.
Mysk and Bakry included their research in the flood they shared on Twitter.

It seems that the #AppStore app on iOS 14.6 sends every tap you make in the app to Apple.👇This data is sent in one request: (data usage & personalized ads are off)#CyberSecurity pic.twitter.com/1pYqdagi4e
