Apple updates its privacy information

Apple’s revamped its privacy site, as Tim Cook promised last fall that it would do yearly. It includes information about Apple’s approach to privacy, managing your privacy on Apple products, and detailed data on government information requests, along with Apple’s actual privacy policy. That’s written in plain English and also provides information on how to opt out of certain things, like location-specific ads.

Of course, Apple likes to play itself in opposition to Google, which spends a lot of time collecting information related to its customers in order to build its products. So it’s hardly entirely altruistic—it never truly is in business, though.
