In the so-called Information Age of screen displays and digital scrolling texts, Agreements materialize the endless terms of use that bind us to global supply chains of production and labor, to corporate profits and financial services, and to larger platforms of surveillance. For those of us who operate with digital media and communication technologies of any kind, these are the material terms by which our daily lives are increasingly lived, whether we're online or off.

Apple users know well the myriad freedoms and falls that come with our seamlessly packaged personal devices. But with every touch, click, download, update, interaction, and bite, we are formally agreeing to broader terms of use, participation, and privacy that have enormous material consequences. Agreement iOS 11.2 makes physical those terms of use left out of beautiful boxes and designed to be out of sight.
