    Is Apple’s “Private Mode” any different?

    Turn Private Browsing on or off on your iPhone or iPod touch

    When you use Private Browsing, you can visit websites without creating a search history in Safari.

    Private Browsing protects your private information and blocks some websites from tracking your search behavior. Safari won't remember the pages you visit, your search history, or your AutoFill information.

    (Emphasis mine, and should be yours)

    I believe they're patterned after each other. Same general privacy restrictions, same switch from light to dark screen to make it obvious when in use, and both pass thru analytics which aren't personally identifiable. With that said anyone is free to sue any person or corporation. Winning is another story. 
    The only difference I’ve seen between Safari‘a private browsing and Chrome’s incognito is that the privacy is isolated between each tab. For example - if you authenticated in a site in Safari and then generate another tab from the same site, you’ll need to login again. Incognito mode will carry that authentication session to the second (or multiple) tabs.
