Re: New iPhone, iPad and "iTV" first half of 2013?

said by Mike:

There is one model iPhone each year in two colors. (insert storage changes)

There are hundreds of Androids phones. No single Android phone has a market dominance as a single iPhone model.

Due to sheer numbers "Android" has a large market share. Each individual phone is just a drop in the bucket. iOS only runs on iPhones.

android doesn't make money, its sheer reason for existence is for giving google a vessel to mine your personal data

Right....so when I add an app through android it shows me all the permissions the app is looking for ie Internet access etc yet Apple doesn't show that?

Settings -> Privacy

Pretty sure by default it's set to not. Within the apps you need to grant permission.

Right?

Trickier than that: Settings>>About>>Advertising (bottoms of the screen!)>>Limit Ad Tracking

Set that to ON. It's OFF by default, which probably is NOT what you want.

Oops, missed a screen: Settings>>General>>About>>Advertising (bottom of screen)>>Limit Ad Tracking

Sorry about that (screenshot wouldn't help I don't think but having the full path to the screen should! Let me know if not).
