Has apple started scanning users files?

Just saw this on Mental Outlaws Channel. What do you think about it?

It refers to this article:

Just 5 minutes of research show that this is false information.

The HN post got flagged, and this article debunked this claims by concluding:

There is no evidence that local images on a Mac have identifiers computed and uploaded to Apple’s servers when viewed in Finder windows.

Thank you.

No worries.
Just take this as an example to take a minute to fact-check information shared online (specially when it involves important decision-making). Some can be not accurate or reliable.
