Facebook has a semi-official ban on employees using Apple's iPhones - allegedly because of Mark Zuckerberg's ire at Apple CEO Tim Cook. But this is not the actual reason for this order, as the reason is the tech giant Apple's CEO, of course, Tim Cook criticized the social network giant Facebook in an interview with MSNBC for being a service that deals with "personal life".

Recode's Kara Swisher asked Cook a question about Cambridge Analytica, an incident in which private Facebook user data was stolen from 50 million users, asking if the Apple CEO was in Zuckerberg's place, "what would you do?" During a call with reporters, CEO Mark Zuckerberg said Facebook will create a new independent body that people can appeal to on whether certain content can stay up or down. The statement even goes so far as to trash Cook for his comments earlier this year. "Privacy to us is a human right, a civil liberty", Cook had said.

The report highlights how Facebook knew of Russian influence much before it admitted to this publicly and how the company tried to deflect and deny scandal after scandal.

When it comes to users, Apple has always said that it supports their data privacy.

Zuckerberg is said to have justified the decision by saying more Facebook customers use Android than Apple.
