  • Hidden in Apple phones is a function which registers every journey you take
  • iPhones are able to shearch the data and work out where you live 
  • Apple claims the data never leaves your phone without your permission 
  • Professor Noel Sharkey (one of Britain’s leading computing experts) said Apple’s ability to track people is 'terrifying

  • Iphones can tracking your every move – recording the exact time you left were you have been, where you bought some thing and where you like to shop. It records the date and time when you leave for a jouney and when arive. The address you go to and how many times you go to that address is recorded. This was introduced a year ago, but to get to access to it you need go through five settings menus, so few people know it exists. Professor Noel Sharkey (one of Britain’s leading computing experts) said Apple’s ability to track people is 'terrifying. Every place you go, where you shop, where you have a drink – it is all recorded. But what horrifies me is that it is so secret. Why did we not know about this?'. Apple says that the information never leaves the iphone without your permission. They also say it is to improve the maping system.
