This app monitors everywhere you go and sends the information to unknown parties !

That's a quite false characterization of their proximity tracking system.

You can find details on it here, including design docs and such: https://www.apple.com/covid19/contacttracing

And the FAQ directly covers "location tracking" - https://covid19-static.cdn-apple.com/app...AQv1.1.pdf

Specifically, there are built in mutual exclusions in the OS - if you want contact tracing information, you are forbidden by the OS from getting location data.

===========

ARM OS X won't run on anything but Apple hardware. They can tie it to the cryptographic roots of trust in the processor easily enough.
