Apple announces they will scan iCloud photos and iMessage for child abuse images, and alert parents.
Apple will scan photos on iPhone, iPad, Mac, and photos uploaded to iCloud, for evidence of child sex abuse, beginning in the US with iOS 15 and macOS Monterey. They'll use on-device machine learning to analyze if images shared in iMessage are sexually explicit and warn children and parents. All the processing happens on the device, nothing is passed to Apple's servers. Security researchers, while supportive of combating child abuse, are concerned that this step risks enabling governments to seek access to citizens' personal data. Link
