Is the tracking iPhone is doing actually good for a change? Now, depending on what you've heard, read or been told. Apple's location-tracking feature for the iPhone is either a complete outrage or a manufactured controversy.

The news broke in the tech world and quickly spread. Essentially, iPhones store users' location data into a file that is stored both on the phone and on any computer the device is synced to. This is information the Apple Corporation did not share with the public. The data goes back a year, when the iOS 4 software was released. Others like some Android devices do the same thing, but only store the location data for a short period of time.
