The Privacy War Continues: Apple Replies Back To Google At WWDC 2019

The Privacy War Continues Apple Replies Back To Google At WWDC 2019

Apple’s WWDC 2019 has been started on 3rd June 2019, and it’s going to end on 7th June 2019. WWDC19 is taking place in San Jose. Only two days have passed, and there have been many new massive announcements made by the company regarding their latest hardware and software updates & release.

The major announcements include the IOS 13 with dark mode, MacOS Catalina, iPadOS for iPads, Mac Pro & PRO Display XDR. The very popular digital platform, iTunes got split into three separate apps – Apple Music, Apple TV, and Apple Podcasts.

The privacy war started between the two tech giants Apple and Google after the statement of the CEO of Google Sunder Pichai. He criticized Apple for “selling expensive products & services in the name of privacy”. He did this indirectly in an opinion post in The New York Times.

In response, Apple’s Craig Federighi in an interview also criticized the search giant Google for “fueling its products by collecting data,” and he did this without taking any names either.

Apple CEO Tim Cook passed a statement during WWDC conference. He first declared the usage share of the latest version iOS 12 around to be 85% of Apple devices worldwide. He then joked about Google’s Android OS saying that Android Pie, which is also the latest version, runs only on 10% of all the Android devices.

Tim Cook doesn’t mention the name of the owner of Android OS, Google. He used “the other company” tagline instead of saying the company’s name.

It has been 10 years long since the Android OS has come to existence, but most of the Android devices are deprived of the latest software updates. For Pixel devices, the updates are released quickly, and it takes hardly one month to release the update for other Android device users. The Android creator is lacking behind in this field.

The two companies are trying to insult each other on public platforms without mentioning their name. Let’s see how long this privacy war continues between these two tech giants.
