  • Apple AI Security:

The company uses an algorithm that will help to determine whether the tasks need to be processed on devices or sent to a cloud server. Apple is thinking of using the Apple M2 chip in the data centers in order to ensure that the remote data processing is protected with a Secure Enclave. However, the company will avoid creating user profiles in order to address privacy concerns. Apple will issue reports to ensure that your data is not accessed or sold.
