I found this very interesting. Would love to hear some smart peoples thoughts on his claim.
"Apple Has Begun Scanning Your Local Image Files Without Consent"



@kbarker @timbray @briankrebs @mmasnick @Edent It’s certainly curious what `mediaanalysisd` is doing over the network, but it should have nothing to do with CSAM fingerprint checking. Apple’s original proposal for that was to do the fingerprint checking locally, on device. And regardless, Craig Federighi told Joanna Stern of the WSJ last month they shelved that whole plan: daringfireball.net/linked/2022


@gruber @kbarker @timbray @briankrebs @mmasnick @Edent

what do you think happens to those on-device checks then?

checking on-device without a subsequent API call is nonsensical.
