Apple Responds To iPhone Uproar

The Wall Street Journal reports today that Apple is changing the way its iPhones collect information about users' locations, but the company denies that it ever has tracked users based on that information.

Earlier this month, the company came under fire when researchers discovered that default settings on iPhones allows for the collection and storage of users' whereabouts. But in terms of tracking people, the company said it "has never done so and has no plans to ever do so," according to the WSJ.

Apples plans to release software that reduces the amount of location information stored in the smartphones, the WSJ reports.
