If you turn on «Frequent Locations» function, then iPhone users can be tracked and information about them revealed. Then smartphone starts to accumulate information about the user.
It means that in few days iPhone is able to learn a lot of things about user's private life, such as his working place, home address, his friends‘ location, shops and restaurants that user visits.
Experts point out that this is sensitive data about user. If the data were accessed, it could reveal the entire country's economic situation and "even state secrets", the researcher said. Apple denies that iPhone is a threat to China's national security.
