Terms of Service, TOS, Terms & Conditions, whatever they’re all called, does anyone actually read them? They are long, speak in a language that most people probably don’t care to understand and repeat some of the same guidelines over and over again. At least we think they do…actually, we’ve never bothered to read them.
Can you really blame us? These are 55-pages long.
What are our options anyway? If we say “Agree” we’ve just agreed to whatever you wanted us to agree to.
If we say “Cancel” we don’t get much practical use out of our iOS device, which we’ve likely already purchased. Decisions, decisions.
On a good note, we haven’t broken any of the terms we’ve agreed to yet, because Apple hasn’t done whatever they say they’re going to do if we do break the terms of the agreement. Or have they? We have no idea.
Of course this is all legal stuff that is required, just in case someone tried to make a case against Apple and file suit. Apple lawyers can come back and say, “It’s on the Terms of Service.”
We get it. Play by Apple’s rules. That’s fair enough, but does anyone know their rules?
Still, we truly feel for the poor sucker that has to type these things up.
