Apple rolls out controversial ‘nutrition labels’ for all apps

Apple is rolling out “nutrition labels” for all apps on its store, in an attempt to encourage better privacy practises. The labels are intended to function like the list of ingredients on food, offering a quick insight into the privacy settings of a given app before it is downloaded. App developers – including Apple itself – will be forced to take part in the new program by informing users what happens to their data when they use an app.
