    Jobs denies the rumors

    Mr Jobs is said to have replied: ‘We don't track anyone. The info circulating around is false.'

    Asked about Android phones tracking users, he supposedly wrote: ‘Oh yes they do.’

    Apple's officially responded to the news. Here is an extract:


    3. Why is my iPhone logging my location?
    The iPhone is not logging your location. Rather, it’s maintaining a database of Wi-Fi hotspots and cell towers around your current location, some of which may be located more than one hundred miles away from your iPhone, to help your iPhone rapidly and accurately calculate its location when requested.
