Apple Delaying Child Safety Features. On Friday Apple announced that they would need more time to collect inputs and bring about desirable improvements before bringing child safety features. This statement has come a month after Apple said that it is planning to implement a system to check iPhones for images of Child Sexual Abuse.
Apple Delaying Child Safety Features: Why
Last month Apple was told by more than 90 policy and rights groups around the world, that it should abandon plans to check for Children’s messages for nudity and scan the phones of adults for images of Child Sexual Abuse.
According to Critics, the feature could be exploited by governments looking to find materials for censorship. Hence Apple Delaying Child Safety Features in iPhones.
“Based on feedback from customers, advocacy groups, researchers, and others, we have decided to take additional time over the coming months to collect input and make improvements before releasing these critically important child safety features,” the company said in a statement on Friday.
