Apple Q&A on Location Data, Future iOS Update to ‘Fix’

While I am reading Apple’s Press Release website, I offer their official response to the iPhone tracking revelation: Apple – Press Info – Apple Q&A on Location Data. Short story: the supposed location data is a local cache of crowd-sourced location data that Apple uses to help your iPhone let you know where you are while providing Apple with additional information about location specific resources such as cell towers and wi-fi hotspots. With an update to iOS, you will be able to completely opt out of this by turning off Location Services, and for those of us who use Location Services, a future iOS update will stop backing up the cache and reduce its size.
