Tim Cook CEO of Apple believes regulation of the tech industry is inevitable

So why does a company embracing encryption and user privacy partner with a company such as Google that collects astounding amounts of user data? "This is not a matter of privacy versus profits, or privacy versus technical innovation", he said. What we've tried to do is come up with ways to help our users through their course of the day. It's not a ideal thing. The same goes for choosing a default search engine.

Cook said Apple supports the implementation of comprehensive federal privacy laws across the globe that minimize data collection, let users know what data is being collected, allow users to access that data and keep all of their information secure. "It's not a ideal thing, but it goes a long way in helping", Cook told the Axios technology correspondent. We have private web browsing.

Their rivals accuse them of delaying a vote because they do not yet have the required number of MPs. Both sides have also warned that a prolonged power vacuum could lead to unrest.

During an interview with Axios over the weekend, Cook said Apple continues to accept billions of dollars each year from Google - allowing it to remain the primary search engine on Apple's products despite privacy concerns - because it has the best product. Back in October at the International Conference of Data Protection and Privacy Commissioners at Brussels, Belgium, Cook had called for a comprehensive federal privacy law in the U.S. like the GDPR in Europe.

The Apple boss said he typically favours free markets without government interference, but said that "we have to admit when the free market is not working". And it hasn't worked here. It is also fighting to stop regulation which will force it to allow people to fix Apple gear they have paid for.
