Apple markets its devices in a way that send a strong privacy-centric message to its customers. But now a new report suggests that Apple devices – at least the iPhone 11 Pro – might not be all that private and secure after all.
Simply put, even if all your apps are set never to location data, but the Location Services feature on your iPhone is turned on, some apps will seek your location data time to time and share them with the nearby cell towers. The only way for you to prevent this from happening completely is by disabling the Location Services completely. In case you aren’t sure how to disable Location Services on your iPhone, just follow these steps:
— Open the Settings apps and scroll down to the Privacy Settings.
— In the Privacy Settings tap on the Location Services option.
— Now toggle the Location Services button to off.
When you do this, the icon that indicates that the Location Services feature is turned on — a small diagonal upward arrow near the battery icon – disappears.
