We’re inching closer to the launch of iOS 14, one of the most privacy-focused iOS generation ever to be released. Apple plans to emphasize this and started to prepare the terrain. The Cupertino-tech giant release a funny iPhone ad today that mocks competitors for jeopardizing the privacy information of their users and highlights that iPhone is Privacy.
The storyline of the add presents various unpleasant situations caused by smartphones that can’t protect the privacy of their users. A man shouts out loud in a bus that he browsed eight websites for divorce attorneys. A woman discloses her log-in details for everything to a stranger in the cinema hall. Another lady claims, during a dinner, that she purchased prenatal vitamins and four pregnancy tests “on March 15 at 9:16 a.m.”. This info and more showcases how lack of Privacy can occur in everyday life.
