No. Other companies like Google and Facebook are also working on end-to-end encryption.

Well as big as Apple is on privacy I don’t think I would worry about this too much. As for as I know they are the only company that will deny the government to unlock a phone or have a backdoor to their OS to snoop around on people!

People may or may not care but it's my understanding that if you use dictate, your speech is sent to somewhere where Apple uses a speech recognition program to recognize it and transform it to text. 

 

I haven't looked into this enough to know whether serious privacy concerns exist. 

I find it disturbing, however, that this     question hasn't been brought up yet in this discussion.

Hello,
didn't want to be mean, but, imagining dictating details of contacts, just remind me of having to edit. Guys, trust me, becoming the besq friend of the keyboard, will pay off. You could also try braille screen input, rather than third party apps. Bluetooth keyboard, the options are almost limitless.,

I'm sure there are some out there who have the patience for such a procedure, but if productivity is your goal, you're better off using MBraille or an external keyboard for entering contacts. Personally, I simply sync contacts into my iPhone using iTunes and Outlook.
