An Update to Apple’s Controversy

This is certainly getting stranger with every passing day!

In the beginning, Apple monitored and kept such files that recorded users’ movements for more than a year. Later when these secret files were un-earthed by Alasdair Allan and Peter Warden, Apple panicked and started denying that no such data was been kept. When people did not believe them and preferred to switch, they started giving all kinds of flimsy rationales and excuses that did not even make sense. Now that the iPhone and iPad users have articulated their anxiety and distress about this ‘big brother is watching’ and ‘Conspiracy theories’; Apple is now restoring to some stern damage control.

 

Recently, Apple has released an update related to this stating that it will fix the ‘Bug’ in the application that enables it to track the location of the users. It will also allow the users to disable their location data that is being transmitted by their gadgets by making use of this particular update.

Wasn’t it that such a thing didn’t even exist!! ??

 

Apple Denies Tracking iPhones and iPads

Your 3G-enabled iPad and iPhone have been sending out your exact geographical locations to someone and you do not even know about it that this particular information has been in use!! You never know who has been tapping into this particular information and if in case, it has been misused? These are some of the questions that are being presently asked by the horrified and shocked Apple users and the alarming part is that there are no answers at all!

For the time being, Apple has stated that it has ‘not tracked’ its consumers’ movements’ and this is something that has never been done. On the other hand, it is being one of the most serious, dangerous threats associated with its credibility as researchers have located the secret files that detail Apple users’ movements, and they could be plotted against a map. This entire data goes back a few months and even a year in some of the cases!
