As an open platform, Android gives developers and users a lot of wiggle room to do things that some like iOS would never allow them to. Sometimes, that delivers power and functionality that only Android users are able to enjoy. But like any sort of power, it can and has been abused. A recurring theme in the upcoming Android P seems to revolve around fine-tuning control over certain aspects of the operating system. The latest is a new limitation that prevents idle background apps from using the camera, which is a win for privacy but potentially for theft as well.
