Tech journalists misread the room; think that the absolute bare minimum act of privacy preservation is less important than their favourite tech fad du jour.

@baldur Not sure who misread the room. They have complete control over browsers on iOS and disable AR/VR APIs for everybody by default. When there are established businesses depending on these APIs. Without any warning. While there are other options available (requesting permission). Or, you know, they could implement the AR/VR dedicated APIs first. It's hard to not judge it in the context of strong preference for their App Store cash cow. Looks like a typical Apple dick move.
