The U.S. Congress has requested an explanation for the changes Apple has made in its privacy policy regarding the geolocation information as IPAD and iPhone products. Now users have to accept that Apple uses its location information if they want to enjoy all the benefits of their devices. 

In a letter sent on 24 June to two congressmen Steve Jobs echoed the concerns of some media about their new privacy policy, including the admission that Apple may collect and share geographic data users . If users disagree with this policy and do not accept this update of the document can not use some features of the products. Although the information is collected anonymously, the fact is that you can use to identify users based on their behavior patterns. 

That is why Steve Jobs asking him to answer a few questions related to the frequency of data collection, the amount of users which collect such data storage procedures used and who are the ‘partners and licensees ‘with which Apple may share this information. The document, signed by two congressmen, calls Steve Jobs a response by July 12.stevelaughing.jpg
