iPhone & iPads tracks users’ movements

I always knew there was something about Apple I didn’t like. Here’s the scoop from the BBC:

Apple iPhones and 3G iPads are secretly recording and storing details of all their owners’ movements, researchers claim.

Location data is kept in a hidden, unencrypted file according to security experts Alasdair Allan and Pete Warden.

With the right software, it can be used to map exactly where a person has been.

Writing on the technology website O’Reilly Radar, Mr Allan and Mr Warden said they did not know why iPhones and iPads were collecting location information but it was “clearly intentional”.
