Apple needs to listen to the backlash

Posted on Aug 8, 2021

Dear Apple and Tim Cook,

Please DELAY these Child-Safety features until iOS 16 or 17. It is best that you get this right the first time. Judging by the the backlash it is getting, expect that it might translate to sales later. Your partner, NCMEC, calling us users SCREECHING VOICES OF THE MINORITY, just goes to show how they value us Apple users (frankly, it is not cool!) who value privacy above all things.

There must be a better way to do this without treating each of your users as a suspect.

I hope that you take a step back and revisit this.

Thank you.
