Reminded me of the phrase "Data Lake" or "Data Swamp", when so much data is collected for no real purpose, that the collector(s) end up with a veritable data lake or swamp with all the bad connotations and privacy liabilities thereof.

There may very well be a purpose to the data collection. We don't know it now, but we may in the future. Apple being silent could be an indication of something very bad going on.
