Due to FB and app developer pressure, Apple changed their mind about mandating apps ask permission before tracking users in iOS 14. That lobbying power should tell you everything you need to know about how much money is made through tracking in iOS apps: #privacy
@kyle All the more reason we are really looking forward to the librem 5!
@kyle I'm going to keep hoping that Apple remains true to their claim that this is only a delay.
@polychrome What I wonder is what the delay accomplishes, outside of giving all these apps time to get the same data but without this specific identifier so as not to trigger the opt-in pop-up.

Also, if this is the state of things in the iOS app store, what does that tell you about Android?
