Apple might respect the letter of privacy but not its spirit.

If it did, it wouldn’t let its partners manipulate your behaviour in News:

If it did, it wouldn’t make Google default search. Or allow Saudi men to track their wives.

Ditto, Brave: they may not see what you’re browsing but they make money by allowing insight of your behaviour to be used to manipulate you.

Privacy exists to protect the weak from manipulation by the powerful. Manipulation by proxy is still manipulation.

@aral The interesting thing about this is that people seem to understand that it's manipulation and get upset when the same data collected through the same means is used for other types of manipulation (Cambridge Analytica) yet treat manipulation to buy things with a shrug.
