Mae Anderson reports:

Apple is resuming the use of humans to review Siri commands and dictation with the latest iPhone software update.

In August, Apple suspended the practice and apologized for the way it used people, rather than just machines, to review the audio.

While common in the tech industry, the practice undermined Apple’s attempts to position itself as a trusted steward of privacy.

Read more on APNews.  I wonder how many people will read Apple’s notice about having a choice on this.  According to the AP,  you supposedly have a choice when installing the update iOS13.2:

Individuals can choose “Not Now” to decline audio storage and review. Users who enable this can turn it off later in the settings.

So I went and looked at my settings. I haven’t gotten that update yet, so when I do, I will look to see how that choice is presented.

Thanks to Joe Cadillic for sending this one in.
