Apple Gave Uber 'Unprecedented' Access to a Secret Backdoor

Uber's iPhone app has a secret backdoor to powerful Apple features, allowing the service to record a user's screen and access other personal information without their knowledge. The existence of Uber's access to special iPhone functions is not disclosed in any consumer-facing information included with Uber's app, despite giving the company direct access to features so powerful that Apple almost always keeps them off limits to outside companies. Although there is no evidence that Uber used this access, the revelation of the app's access to Apple code raises important questions for a company already under investigation for controversial business practices.
