    Nothing in there seems really surprising at all unless I am missing something...

    the fact they track your every move and the only reason it is known is that there was a brain fart with one of their servers.

    There is a claim for that and the article does lead with that, but it doesnt explicitly state as fact, which is where I kind of fall off personally.

    Not defending Apple, but the article doesnt take a lot of confidence in their source since everything is hedged.

    Its more surprising to me at this moment, that Apple is treating their devices almost like glorified thin clients

    iOS 10,11 had lot of telemetry events for app closing, double home button to swipe up, force restart logs, apple health kit logs, failed itunes sync logs etc.... I remeber cleaning up 800-2GB of telmetry using itunes and those info were copied to my disk and sent to Apple server.

    Yeah. I am done. I am going with new samsung phones for us ASAP. Early in the new year after the christmas rush is over, I am going to buy one at a time, sell our iPhones, iPads and apple watches as we get out of the "ecosystem".

    The real question is, does Microsoft do the same thing with Windows 10? If so, it's time to move to Linux.

    No, MS does not do that with windows 10. Any telemetry taken with 10 is made known to it's users up front. whether you choose to read the eula is the users issue. This was completely hidden and users were un aware of this. Two totally different things.
