Moreover, the tech giant is currently facing a tussle with Facebook. A conflict on privacy began between both companies a week ago. The changes Apple made in iOS 14.4 for iPhones are the main subject of conflict. The OS version is expected to go live next year and require iPhone users to permit so that apps can trace them for publicity.
Currently, the social media giant Facebook tracks users between apps. It assists users to connect small businesses to consumers and show custom ads, according to them. Apple presenting granular permission would impede this. As Facebook believes, more users will refuse permission to trace them between apps.
