Wow!

Apple granted ride hailing app Uber "totally unprecedented" permission allowing its app to read iPhone screens even when only in background use, it has been alleged.

Will Strafach, the CEO of Sudo Security Group, pointed out the "anomaly" on Twitter earlier this week, saying it was "very unusual" and could only have been granted to the taxi-hailing company by Apple.

Asked why this was a concern, the security expert tweeted that it apparently gave the company the "ability to read directly from the screen even in background".
