Here’s how to turn on App Privacy Report on the iPhone
Before proceeding, do ensure your iPhone is running iOS 15.2 or up.
1) Go Settings > Privacy.
2) Scroll down until you find App Privacy Report. Tap on App Privacy Report.
3) Inside App Privacy Report, tap “Turn On App Privacy Report”.
This will activate iOS App Privacy Report. There won’t be anything listed at first, but as you use your iPhone and apps, all the activities shall be recorded here.
After turning on the App Privacy Report, I found out that App Store (Apple App Store) was accessing my Contacts app. Not sure what App Store is trying to do with my Contacts app. But do you think I should worry and concern? I guess someone or rather some groups in App Store development team may get whacked by Tim Cook pretty soon – if people are reporting this incident.
Do check out on your iPhone whether on your case, the App Store is also accessing Contacts app. Let me know if it is, on the comment section down below.
Bring it all together
With the simple steps shared above, now you can take charge of your privacy inside your iPhone. In the case you find out certain apps or websites are abusing your privacy, you can take a stand to no longer use the apps or accessing the websites and / or at the same time provide feedback to the developers.
