Apple: Be Geo-Tracked Or No Downloads From iTunes


Apple is now geo-tracking users of iPhones, iPads and computers.  Its privacy policy has been updated to include the ability to collect and store user and location data.  Now, in order to download apps or media including music from the iTunes store, users are prompted to agree to the new terms and conditions.  If they refuse to, they cannot download anything

Though Apple states that the data is anonymous and does not enable the personal identification of users, they are left with little choice but to agree if they want to continue buying from iTunes. 

Read the new privacy policy.
