Submission + - Apple refutes report on iPhone threat to China's national security

An anonymous reader writes: “Apple has never worked with any government agency from any country to create a backdoor in any of our products or services. We have also never allowed access to our servers,” the company said Sunday in a bilingual statement on its China website. Users have to make the choice to enable the iPhones to calculate their locations, while “Apple does not track users’ locations — Apple has never done so and has no plans to ever do so,” the company said. The statement was in response to allegations by China’s top state broadcaster that iOS7 software and its “Frequent Location” service, posed a security risk. The data can be accessed easily, although labelled as “encrypted,” and may lead to the disclosure of “state secrets,” CCTV said.
