Seven horn-loaded tweeters, six microphone array, one high-excursion woofer, and a partridge in a pear tree! This fancy smart speaker from Apple comes with six built in smart microphones. That's a lot of listening. Apple promises anything you say after "Hey Siri" is encrypted and associated to a random identifier to Apple's servers though, so you should be safe. Apple also claims this speaker has a big brain with spatial awareness and can learn all about the room you put it in to deliver the best sound. When you listen to those 11 drummers drumming they're gonna sound awesome.

Qué podría pasar si algo falla

Apple does a pretty good job with privacy and security as a company. They don't share or sell your data and Apple takes special care to make sure your Siri requests aren't associated with you. Apple did face backlash in 2019 when it came to light their contractors were regularly listening in on confidential personal conversations when they were reviewing the voice assistant's recordings. Apple changed their policy so users weren't automatically opted-in to human voice review. However, it's always good to remember if you buy this product you're bringing six quality microphones that are always listening into your home. Here's hoping Apple doesn't let more strangers listen in to all you say!

¿Qué historial tiene la compañía en cuanto a la protección de los datos de los usuarios?

Genial

They actually changed their Siri voice recording review practices—from an opt out to an opt-in—when people told them they were unhappy having contractors listen to the recordings. Good for them! In 2019, The Guardian reported that Apple hired contractors to review snippets of call recordings; these contractors "regularly heard confidential details… as part of their job providing quality control, or "grading," the company's Siri voice assistant." As a result of this revelation, Apple has changed Siri's privacy policy to no longer retain Voice recordings. Users can opt-in to providing audio samples. Apple employees will be the only ones to listen to recordings.

Seguridad

¿El producto cumple nuestros estándares mínimos de seguridad?

Cifrado

Uses encryption in transit and at rest. After Apple recognizes the words “Hey Siri,” what you say is encrypted and associated with a random identifier without being tied to your Apple ID. Audio samples are only retained if you have opted-in.

How to keep the smart speaker you got for the holidays and still keep some of your privacy, too
Vox
Smart speakers — Amazon’s Echo, Google’s Nest, Apple’s HomePod, and the like — are in approximately one-third of American homes, a number that’s sure to increase once all the cyber Monday deals have been shipped and Christmas presents have been unwrapped. But the people receiving (or giving) these digital personal assistants may not realize all the potential privacy pitfalls that come with them — or know what they can do to protect themselves from always-on listening and data collection devices.
Apple’s AI plan: a thousand small conveniences
James Vincent
AI has become an integral part of every tech company’s pitch to consumers. Fail to hype up machine learning or neural networks when unveiling a new product, and you might as well be hawking hand-cranked calculators. This can lead to overpromising. But judging by its recent WWDC performance, Apple has adopted a smarter and quieter approach.
Apple apologises for allowing workers to listen to Siri recordings
The Guardian
Apple has apologised for allowing contractors to listen to voice recordings of Siri users in order to grade them. The company made the announcement after it completed a review of the grading programme, which had been triggered by a Guardian report revealing its existence. According to multiple former graders, accidental activations were regularly sent for review, having recorded confidential information, illegal acts, and even Siri users having sex.
