It is important to mention here that the Apple’s app privacy labels are showing all the things that the app can access. For example, an app can only use location data when it is showing you a map. Moreover, the information in the labels is added by the company itself, and Apple is making no any promise regarding its accuracy.
Surprisingly, the tech giant has added the labels without updating the Gmail app. Almost two months ago, it was the last time when Google updated the iOS app.
