You've no idea how hard it was for this fandroid to write that title, but it's true: iOS respects its users' personal data more than the vast majority of Android distributions out there. The exceptions are:
1. A custom ROM with a built-in permissions manager;
2. Some other implementation of App Ops for rooted users;
3. A scant few stock Android distributions like Cyanogen OS
App Ops showed up as a hidden feature in Android 4.3 and was all but removed in later versions of 4.4 KitKat. Google maintains that it was never meant to be a user-facing feature, but that didn't stop custom ROM developers (and Xposed Module authors) from making it available to users anyway. And again, without some
implementation of AppOps your personal data is less secure than it would be with iOS.
Thankfully this may change with the next version of Android, set to début at Google I/O later this month
