I got a copy of the transcript:

"Yeah, we take privacy seriously, it is a human right, unless you are in China or Russia, then you are screwed... our rigorous App Store review process also let slip all sorts of trackers for our users to be heard and monitored even when they don't want to, isn't that fascinating? This is the most private OS ever! And I think you are going to love it."

*cough* CSAM *cough*

The dog who barks the loudest is the dog which doesn't really bite.

Aside from that, I believe there are other instances of privacy violation involving Apple recently.

CSAM would be intentional violation. There are also unintentional ones like handing over data to people pretending to be police. And users here still defended Apple saying humans are "fallible." Well, if they champion privacy so much there could have been a system in place to mitigate this excessive fallibility, or encrypt everything so even Apple does not have access to it.
