iPhone Surgery for the Practically Paranoid

Is there a point past which the risks generated by high fidelity sensors in smartphones overshadows their utility? Maybe, but this isn’t a philosophical hand waiving session where we grow grey hairs and rhapsodize about policy. This is a session about taking control and getting the junk out of your phone that you don’t want.

Come join us to explore how resilient modern iPhones are against component failure and how that resilience can be leveraged to remove or disable sensors that may be used to infringe on your privacy. We explore the construction of Apple products at the component level and identify the choices and tradeoffs available to those willing to take more drastic measures in the pursuit of evading data collection.
