iPhone 11 Pro collects user data even when location services are disabled

According to a security researcher, the iPhone 11 will collect your location data even when instructed not to. KrebsOnSecurity’s Brian Krebs noted that the iPhone 11 Pro ’intermittently seeks the user’s location information even when all applications and system services on the phone are individually set to never request this data’. Apple has said this isn’t a bug but by design.

A smartphone is only truly secure when turned off and it's battery removed, oh wait many smartphones don't allow the battery to be removed, I wonder why. 😏

My iPhone 6 sometimes has location services indicated even when nothing is on to use them. Even just the headline checks out...

I read this on my way to upgrade my phone. I turned around, went home and smoked some cannabis instead.
