Apple isn’t planning a new 27-inch iMac with the Apple Silicon chip

However, Apple has confirmed that it does not intend to update the 27-inch iMac with its own chip, according to statements provided to The Verge. Instead, the company will focus on developing new 24-inch models.

The 24-inch iMac falls between the 21-inch 4K and 27-inch 5K models, both with Intel processors. It is important to note that the new computer does not include the latest processors, but rather uses the core chip of the new Apple Silicon series.

Apple called Android an “all-in-one tracking device” in 2013

ten years ago, Apple has issued criticism, calling Android, Google’s operating system, a “mass tracking device.”

The assessment was found in an internal document dated January 2013, sent by Apple’s senior vice president of services, Eddy Cue, to the company’s CEO, Tim Cook. The revelation came to light in the midst of the antitrust trial Google is facing.

In the text, Apple compares its approach to privacy with Google’s, highlighting actions since 2007, such as changes to Google’s privacy policy that allow for the consolidation of user data from all of its services. As well as a $22.5 million fine imposed by the US Federal Trade Commission for user tracking in Safari, Apple’s browser.

Although the document refers to similar measures implemented by other technology companies such as Facebook, Instagram, Microsoft, and Twitter, its primary focus is to compare the privacy strategies of Apple and Google.

While Google collects data from all of its services through a user account, including voice search, Maps, Ads, and Calendar, Apple says it offers different support for iCloud, the App Store, and the iTunes Store.

Additionally, it excludes services like Siri, Maps, and the iAd advertising platform from the Apple ID. Data from its services are only combined “when providing a better customer experience,” according to Apple.

When it comes to voice assistance, Apple points out that Google’s voice search is linked to the user’s account, while Siri only links the user’s data using this assistant.

The document ensures that users have control over the continuity of their data and that data that allows their identification is never shared with third parties.
