Is MacOS Malware? Is Apple spying on you?

Big Sur introduces a new set of protocols that I was unaware of (I haven’t upgraded yet for other reasons). I am a Mac guy and always have been and I resent this in a way that supercedes any arguments about not having anything to hide etc.

Is MacOS Malware? Is Apple spying on you? - No

So much for Apple being a champion of privacy…
