Google keeps tracking you even when you specifically tell it not to: Maps, Search won't take no for an answer

Apple far worse

Apple just force you to create an account when you first setup an iPhone, and location track you with no way to opt out of that either.

On Android, a Google account is entirely optional, just press cancel on first setup. With no Google account, there is no Google location tracking. (Your network of course can always triangulate your location,vehich is true of every phone made in the last 25 years)

Apple track you location and bolster apple maps with that data, at the expense of your data allowance and battery. It's clearly mentioned in page 12 of the Apple terms of service and page 22 of the privacy policy, which I'm sure you're familiar with.
