This type of rating system is very similar to the dystopian TV series, Black Mirror, where individuals were given ratings on who they are as a person with all of their actions affecting the final result.
Apple isn’t the only one who are adapting this type of rating system either. China has their own rating system of their citizens to assess whether they are a threat to society or not. However the rankings in China have a higher importance with low ratings affecting your capability to get a home loan.
Apple’s approach to be as vague as possible is letting their consumer base fear the worse about what they are actually monitoring. Additionally the update will also be hitting Apple TVs which comes as a surprise as they can’t receive or make calls.
