Apple Sneaks COVID-19 Contact Tracing into Latest Phone Update

Posted on 21 May 2020

If you install updates on your phone without reading the details then you might get an unwanted surprise. The latest involves contact tracking technology. Contact tracing technology, in theory, will notify users when they have entered the presence of a person with the coronavirus. This project was begun in an effort “to protect people and get society back up and running,” according to an April 10 announcement via Apple’s newsroom. Even if this technology supposedly works, surveys show 3 in 5 Americans are either unable or entirely unwilling to use the technology.
