iPhone records your location information, stores it on your PC

Security researchers, including Pete Warden have discovered that iPhone records location data, stores it in a file, and syncs it with iTunes. That means the data -- and the record of your location over time -- persists even when you upgrade or change iPhones. There's no evidence Apple transmits or receives a copy of this data or stores or uses it in any way beyond locally on your device and PC.

That Apple is doing this without disclosure is disconcerting, and as the researchers point out, it raises some security and privacy concerns:

"Apple has made it possible for almost anybody – a jealous spouse, a private detective – with access to your phone or computer to get detailed information about where you've been."

Apple has sold over 187 million iOS devices

Thanks to Apple's patent and trademark lawsuit against Samsung, we now get fresh iOS sales figures, a whopping 187 million of them including 108 million for iPhone, 19 million for iPad, and 60 million for the usually not broken-out iPod touch. These are as of March, 2011. (Figure a couple million in Apple

That's a compelling install base, a largely binary-compatible one, and the reason Apple's strategy lately has been more about platform than product.

White iPhone 4 showing off prototype iOS 4 fast app switching, folder UI?

Vietnamese site Tinhte might just have gotten their hands on an official white iPhone 4 from Apple... running a previously unseen version of iOS! While it could also just be a clever set of Jailbreak tweaks, the video shows a new version of the multitasking fast app switching that replaces the dock icons in iOS 4 with miniature tiles of the actual apps, sort of like Exposé for iPhone.

Whether this is something destined for an interim iOS 4.4, our first hint at iOS 5, or some Jailbreak wizardry only Apple knows for sure. But it is interesting that it shows up on the anniversary of the Gizmodo iPhone 4 leak, isn't it?

UPDATE: Per comments, yes there are some old icons but also some Apple internal test icons. Weird. Second video from the same source that shows off, among other things, 64GB, a new rendering for Folders, and Facebook built into settings.

UPDATE 2: This might just be a prototype iPhone 4 running an early test version of iOS 4 which included Folder and Fast App Switching UI Apple later decided against implementing (going with what we see now in the release version of iOS 4.)

Check out the video after the break and let us know, real, fake, or really fake? And if real, what do you think?
