With iOS 14.5 Apple brought to its users something that companies like Facebook did not expect. The privacy policy was finally put into effect, after several months of preparation and even speculation.

Facebook and other Internet giants were quick to speak out against it, but to little avail. Now, a year later, it is clear that this Apple privacy policy continues to cost Facebook, YouTube and others many millions.

The impact of iOS 14.5 and its new features was huge, in several areas. From that moment on, users of the iPhone operating system began to control who accesses their data and how they can do so.

Immediately Facebook had a big loss, not being able to have access to all the essential data to work. This has been reflected in its revenues and has now been materialized again, being extended to other technology companies, targeted with this change from Apple.
