IPhone 6,6s and 8 doses that
And they activate data, wireless and GPS when they want
Hahaha (Lol) when Google CEO was being grilled by the congress said he needs to check on the Judge's iPhone when asked the question if he was being tracked by Google:)
Lol that's been proven wrong, so now the judge should consider grilling Apple similarly.
I really thought this was an article about how, through packed data intercepted or something like that, somebody discovered that Apple is using the gps to send data without you to know.
But no. Its a video from youtube in which the guy forgot to disable the location services option entirely...
Anonymous, 04 Dec 2019Lol obviously author of article didn't watch the video carefully either, yet wrote about it an... moreVideo doesn't matter. Apple admitted, that there are switches, that you can not set to off. Read between the lines.
Lol obviously author of article didn't watch the video carefully either, yet wrote about it anyway. Nice clickbait Gsmarena.
Aramissss, 04 Dec 2019Keep calm, Uncle Sam just want to know where are you, just in case.Hey, if they want to they could pretend to have made a mistake and corrected it and just hid the icon when the switches are off, this article doesn't provide any other way to test for GPS activity.
Marvin, 04 Dec 2019It's OK, you're just holding it wrong.It's fine, just another feature on your 1000 dollar phone
Keep calm, Uncle Sam just want to know where are you, just in case.
There is no device that is connected to internet or have gps built in the device that is spy free. Even when you can turn these options off, there is still ways to spy on everyone. No company on earth will admit that there product is spying on you cause then nobody will want there product. They all know that it's possible and just dont say it or admit it. It's just a bit dumb to think you can get modern technology that dont spy on you. Use your tinfoil hat if your so paranoid.
Is it limited to iPhone 11 Pro or other iPhone also suffer the same flaw as it may be software dependent?
Anonymous, 04 Dec 2019Since when OnePlus assemble in India? They are not that developed yetYou need to check one plus boX.
Let’s make that 3 things he didn’t turn off, LOL!
1. Location Services
2. Location Alerts
3. Share My Location
He literally did not put much thought into this in his rush to create clickbait, 3 major switches are still on. :’D
The more I watch the video the more I pick up how much he has missed.
He must be an Android fan boy looking for clout.
Anonymous, 04 Dec 2019Apple iPhone is not a Chinese phone it’s assembled in china cause of cheap labor and one plus ... moreiPhones are China-made phones owned by an American company. Stop your lame excuses and move on.
Anonymous, 04 Dec 2019And that is the problem. There are HIDDEN services that use your location and CAN'T be turned ... moreNothing is hidden, he didn’t turn off Location Alerts either, that’s two things he has left On.
Location Services is on.
Location Alerts is on.
Nothing to see here actually, he forgot to properly turn the switches off.
[deleted post]And that is the problem. There are HIDDEN services that use your location and CAN'T be turned off individually. You unknown what services are so if the main switch is ON you can't avoid those services send your location individually. What services are those that are HIDDEN? That is the question!!!
GAMIRSFM, 04 Dec 2019Then GSMArena should remove the article. That would be misleading ya know.GSMArena don’t care about facts they want to create clickbait.
ANOTHER note on this video, the guy did not turn off Location Alerts either, that feature is on by default and sits right under Location Services, LOL! So there are two crucial settings he left out.
This is the problem with tech journalism these days, these guys just jump to conclusions without actually doing some real digging and looking closer.
Devil is ALWAYS in the detail.
