Apple TV 4K
If money is no object, then Apple TV 4K could be right for you. It comes with all the bells and whistles -- that means things like 4K HDR with Dolby Atmos sound. You'll be able to streams from standards like Netflix and Disney+ and rent or buy movies as well. You'll also get access to Apple TV+, Apple Fitness+, Apple Music, and Apple Arcade. Oh, and you can connect the FaceTime app through your iPhone or iPad to FaceTime on your big screen. So much better to see Gramma with. And if you like talking to Siri, just ask Siri to find you something good to watch.
Wat kan er gebeuren als er iets misgaat?
Apple does a pretty good job with privacy and security as a company. But, like life, hackers find a way! So Apple has had some pretty serious security issues. In 2023, Apple released fixes for three different vulnerabilities that made it possible for bad actors to hack Apple devices. In 2022, they had a security flaw that could allow hackers to take complete control of iPhones, iPads, and Macs. Earlier that year, Apple also gave up data to hackers who forged emergency data requests from law enforcement. Eesh. Back in 2021, another bad security vulnerability could have allowed bad actors to record calls and messages and even turn the device camera and microphone on without the user knowing. The good thing with Apple and security is, they seem to take these security breaches seriously, jump and fix them immediately, and communicate pretty well with users on what they need to do to stay safe. So keep those devices updated, folks!
On the privacy front, Apple does collect data about what you watch, purchase, or download on Apple TV as well as things like name, email address, age, location, device information, contact information. Apple will use this data to offer personalized recommendations for other shows to watch and target ads to you on Apple platforms like in the App Store or Apple News. They do give you the option to opt out of both these forms of data collection, which is great. And Apple says they share some non-personal information with the makers of shows to help them see how their shows are performing and pay out royalties. In the streaming TV world, this is all pretty standard and maybe even a little less scary than other companies like Roku who seem to share (even sell) your data with many more third parties.
And when it comes to AI voice assistants, Siri is a bit more privacy conscious than others like Amazon’s Alexa. Apple says they take special care to make sure your Siri requests aren't associated with you, and those transcripts aren’t subject to human review--anymore. In 2021, Apple made another positive change for your Siri voice requests--many audio requests for things like setting timers or alarms or controlling music are no longer sent over the internet to their servers, instead they are processed directly on your Apple TV. This is better for your privacy.
All in all, yes, Apple is generally better than other Big Tech companies (cough, Meta, cough cough, Amazon, cough Samsung), when it comes to privacy. They seem to do a better job at collecting less data, probably because they aren’t trying to sell as many ads as Google and Facebook -- yet. So when we hear that more ads are coming, that does alert our privacy Spidey Sense a bit. In early 2023, Apple hired a TV advertising executive to “build a video advertising business” for its companion streaming service with (confusingly) the same name. What that will look like, we don’t yet know, but it might be similar to Netflix’s cheaper ad tier – in which case opting out of ad targeting may no longer be an option. For now, we’re keeping an eye on Apple’s ad business ambitions with the hope that their public commitment to privacy will outweigh the need to reap those extra ad dollars.
Besides their burgeoning interest in the ad game, Apple still isn’t perfect. In January 2023, Apple was fined eight million euros by France’s data protection authority because they determined that in 2021, Apple’s iOS 14 didn’t comply with EU privacy requirements. The complaint said its default settings allowed targeted ads from Apple without asking users for consent. Regulators agreed. The thing is, Apple could do better. So it's important to hold them accountable for their privacy promises.
Tips om uzelf te beschermen
- Adjust privacy settings on Apple TV
- You can say “Hey Siri, stop listening” to turn off speech recognition for a period of time.
- Use your device privacy controls to limit access to your personal information via app (do not give access to your camera, microphone, images and videos).
- Keep your app regularly updated.
- Limit ad tracking via your device (eg on iPhone go to Privacy -> Advertising -> Limit ad tracking) and biggest ad networks (for Google, go to Google account and turn off ad personalization).
- Keep your app regularly updated.
