Secret Tracker Set on iPhones to Track Users Location

A site called iPhone Tracker posted a report Wednesday, that Apple devices appear to be tracking their owners' locations and storing data about people's whereabouts without their knowledge.

Two researchers reported, base on their unauthorized surveillance started in June 2010, when the latest version of Apple's mobile operating system was released, they discovered a hidden tracking file and posted it out of concern for users . But, Apple has not responded to the allegations.

A program online has been posted by the researchers that will let any iPhone user see a map of his or her location over time, going back to June, when iOS 4.0 was released.

Alasdair Allan and Pete Warden, the program's developers, say this data is stored on a person's iPhone or 3G-enabled iPad and on computers that are synced with those devices. There's no evidence, they say, that the data is also transmitted to Apple as it's collected. But, it's a BIG POSSIBILITY !
