Apparently, Apple Was Listening To Some Siri Recordings — But It Has A New Privacy Policy
It’s worth noting that, according to Apple, the audio recordings that were subjected to this grading process make up
less than 0.2% of all Siri interactions, and that, though Siri requires some user data to execute commands, overall, the user data that Siri interacts with is pretty well-protected as far as voice assistants go. For example, if you ask Siri to read aloud your text messages, Siri will access them without retaining their contents on the Siri server. And after six months, all user personal data — which is tied to a random identifier (basically an encrypted code) instead of the users’ Apple ID or phone number — becomes detached from this random identifier and associated with a new one.
