You know who else keeps a record of your calls? Your carrier. And you don't have any ability to opt-out of their tracking under any circumstances. And who knows how long they keep those records. I've looked at year-old detailed cell phone bills and seen all the numbers for incoming and outgoing calls.
Edited. Forgot one more thing. Carriers also track which cell towers your phone connects to.
This is also why its so silly that Tim Cook is so strongly pushing privacy. NO ONE CARES. NO ONE.
90-95% of iOS users either use Facebook or Google services. So even if Apple keeps things 'private' it does not matter.
Cook needs to stop talking about privacy and get into the advertising/data collection game. Not doing so, Cook is losing shareholders HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS. Apple needs to collect data and advertise. Because Apple users have spoken loud and clear they DONT CARE ABOUT PRIVACY.

why? Because of Tim Cook's dumb ass privacy crusade she has one hand tied behind her back.
How the hell can she do here job if Cook refuses to use the data from hundreds of millions of Apple users?
Tim Cook needs to resign. His dumb ass social, policital, and privacy crusades are hurting the company.
Apple has 500 million of the most valuable customers on the planet. Yet Cook refuses to use the data from these customers to open more revenue streams.
Cook preaches privacy, yet Google is still the default search on iOS.
Cook preaches privacy, yet 80-90% of iOS users use Facebook or Google or both.
Its beyond pathetic that Apple's competitors attack Apple's main revenue streams by bringing out hardware products.
Yet Apple refuses to fight back with their own search, social, and AI platforms.
If Cook had half a brain Apple would have developed and released a Google search competitor by now. Or a Facebook competitor. But because of Cooks dumb ass privacy crusade we see neither. And Amazon, Samsung, Microsoft, ect continue to make inroads into Apple's hardware business.
