With all the hype the media has created about the newest Apple iPhone 6, it’s no wonder nobody has realized what your iPhone has been doing behind your back.
Up until several days ago, most of us thought of our smartphones as a natural extension of our hands. However, a British Metro reporter realized there was something wrong with his iPhone – apart from the common bugs. As it turns out, the iPhone was actually recording each and every single move he made – from his home, to his local pub and to every other place he went. The smartphone recorded the date, the arrival and departure time as well as the number of times he visited a certain location. And it even provided a map for it! The creepy tracking option is located deep into the settings menu and fortunately, it can be turned off at any time.
For those of you who own iPhones and find this terrifying, don’t worry – the tracking option only runs on iOS 7 and iOS 8 and it can be easily turned off.
