Here comes a great news for those who always worry about the data misuse by the smartphone companies, that in iOS10 Apple is giving you an option to choose that either you want to share your data with Apple or not. So if you do not want to share your data then you will have an option for this.

In the beginning Apple use data to track user behavior so that they can make SIri to offer better service and predict what you want at what time, which is actually not a big issue for any iOS user. But Apple has never said clearly that what type of data they collect. Now recent news says that you will have an option to opt out of data sharing with the company.

As of now Apple has not started data collection yet. With the launch of iOS 10 launches it will need users to provide their consent to Apple to share their data. Chances are that you will get a prompt message on iOS10 display to opt in or out of data sharing.

Apple is also going to bring Al to photo app to recognize locations, objects and faces automatically in iOS10. Users may have a fear that they company can collect their photos and store them on a cloud storage. But Apple has denied such activity.

Currently the best thing is this that Apple is going to give its users an option where they can choose if they want to share their personal data with the company or not. It is a really great step. Because where other companies are forcing users to share their data because of their own business purposes, Apple is showing that how user friendly they are and also they are showing respect to its users.

Do share what you think about this feature of iOS10, If you have any question or suggestion, feel free to share via comments.
