Apple believes that every user should have clear insights into how their data is used, and tools to decide when to share their data and who to share it with. The whimsical short film "A Day in the Life of an Average Person's Data" invites users to follow Apple TV+ Ted Lasso star Nick Mohammed through his average day, explaining how bad actors misuse data — and how Apple works to keep his personal information safe.
"At Apple, we're focused on designing devices, features, and services that keep users in control of their personal data," said Erik Neuenschwander, Apple's director of User Privacy. "Over the years we've integrated powerful privacy controls into our operating systems. This film and our new Today at Apple sessions will show users how they can take advantage of some of the features we offer, and understand how privacy is at the center of everything we do."
In celebration of Data Privacy Day, Apple has also unveiled a new educational resource designed to help users take control of their data.
Beginning Saturday, January 28, a new Today at Apple session, "Taking Charge of Your Privacy on iPhone," will explore features including Mail Privacy Protection, Safety Check, Location Services, and passkeys. In this session, attendees will learn how they can customize each feature based on their individual privacy preferences. You can sign up for the session at https://apple.co/skills-privacy.
