It was well publicized that Apple would be testifying in Washington on location tracking and other mobile privacy issues. Well today was the day, and Apple was well represented by vice president Bud Tribble. More interesting though, was that Tribble revealed that in a forthcoming edition of iOS, the downsized local cache within iOS will become encrypted.
The software update we've been waiting for since, um, last week, is here to address concerns of the iPhone tracking location data. The update will reduce the size of the cache on the iPhone that stores this iOS crowd-sourced location data and will no longer back it up to iTunes, which keeps score of where you've been. Additionally, the update will also delete the cache entirely when Location Services is turned off. So now, you can continue living like all incognito and never worry about any of us finding out where you've been. You sneaky dog.
