Today's Apple is very different from that, however, and it is more confident in its own products, especially its services, that it doesn't mind mixing with other platforms and software. Knowing that even its own users would sometimes be forced to use a different web browser, Apple is now at least providing them a way to protect themselves even when using Google's Chrome.

iPhone 12 mini DxOMark score is promising
