The iPhone doesn’t spy on your conversations, Apple tells lawmakers
Of all the companies you’d suspect might want to listen in on the things you say, or record parts of your conversations with their devices, it’s Apple that told lawmakers that iPhones don’t do it. Representatives Greg Walden, Marsha Blackburn, Gregg Harper, and Robert Latta cited reports that smartphones could “collect ‘non-triggered’ audio data from users’ conversations near a smartphone in order to hear a ‘trigger’ phrase, such as ‘Okay Google’ or ‘Hey Siri,’” asked both Apple and Google CEOs to comment on the matter.
