And now you’ve done it!! Bah! I thought it was so cool that I could plot of heat map of my location for a full year. With all the cribbing around the internets about how the iphone is not secure because it stores data (ie a cache of your location data), Apple has decided to squash this wonderful “easter egg”.
> 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. >
Wouldn’t it be cool, if someone actually wrote an app that does the exact same thing? I bet it would sell like crazy! I’d buy it.
