Everyone is listening to fucktard Glenn Beck and similar buttholes. Apple is not playing a Big Brother scam, here is the last little section of the press release-Q&A located here.
Sometime in the next few weeks Apple will release a free iOS software update that:
- reduces the size of the crowd-sourced Wi-Fi hotspot and cell tower database cached on the iPhone,
- ceases backing up this cache, and
- deletes this cache entirely when Location Services is turned off.
In the next major iOS software release the cache will also be encrypted on the iPhone.
