It became known about the collection of user data without their consent by the developers of applications on iOS
Former Apple employee Johnny Lin told reporters that iOS app developers collect user data bypassing the ban. According to The Washington Post, at least three games are involved in these actions. One of them is the popular Subway Surfers runner. If you refuse to collect data, the game sends a packet of information about the user's device to the servers of the marketing organization Chartboost 29. The list of information includes volume level, battery usage statistics, IP address and smartphone memory.

The data sent makes it possible to identify the gadget on the advertiser's side and then send targeted advertising based on user preferences. At the same time, game designers could not give a clear answer to the question of why they send such a large amount of data to smartphone owners. So, the developers of Subway Surfers said that these actions are necessary for the stable operation of the application.
