Apple CEO, Tim Cook, spoke at a conference this week about how Apple privacy may be under threat. Cook says Cook that potential legislation in both the USA and EU would loosen Apple’s grip over their walled garden, and create a security risk to users. One of the potential threats he discussed was sideloading, another was backdoors in encryption.

We discuss some of the legislation being discussed, what sideloading is, and why this and encryption backdoors could affect the privacy and security of Apple users.
