Apple denies location tracking claims

After several days of silence on the iPhone location tracking situation, Apple released a statement saying the iPhone was not logging location and that users were 'confused'.

Apple claims the iPhone is not logging the location of the user, claiming that it was instead maintaining a database of Wi-Fi hotspots and cell towers to 'help your iPhone rapidly and accurately calculate its location when requested.'

Despite the claim that the iPhone is 'iPhone is not logging your location', Apple said that it would issue an iOS update which would reduce the amount of logged data, adding that the amount of logged data was a software bug.
