Apple Wants Control Over Your iPhone Texts

The puritan company of the smartphone space, Apple is at it again as not only do they wish to purge all what in their view is objectionable content from their App Store and iPhone they now also want to act Big Brother when it comes to text messaging on your iPhone.

According to an article over on Gizmodo by Max Read, the guys over at Techcrunch have reported that an Apple patent which was filed back in 2008 has now gained approval, said Apple patent is for “systems, devices, and methods” of filtering “text-based messages” based on “objectionable content.”

What that basically means is Apple wants to be able to watch over you and filter out any words in their view are questionable, thus Apple is targeting the sex-texter as they don’t want you using their divine device for such unruly behaviour.

So not only does the high and mighty Apple block apps for the iPhone which they consider below their righteous expectations they now want to control what you can write in a text message or email by filtering out any word they deem “objectionable content.”

News for Apple, when someone purchases an iPhone it happens to be their property so what right does Apple have to control what you place in your text messages and emails? The answer is none as basically it infringes on the owners privacy and right to use their property as they see fit. Agree or disagree?

    Maybe they are going to make a setting so that parents can block objectionable things on their kid’s phone. Of course with the way kids spell today that would be a monumental task.
