Apple Denies Tracking Users. Promises Changes.

According to news reports, Apple denies that it is tracking the location of iPhone users. Apple posted a release on the issue.

I am working on a longer piece on the implications of the revelation that iPhones store location information.

It is still hard to tell exactly what is going on, or why this was done.

Apple denies that it was tracking users. OK. Probably true. But this does not change the more important fact that the iPhone was storing the data for a long time, and that the data allowed anyone with access to determine the past location of users.
