Alex Levinson on the iPhone Location-Tracking File

iPhone forensics expert Alex Levinson has three problems with O’Reilly’s report on the “consolidated.db” location log file:

  1. Apple is not collecting this data.
  2. This hidden file is neither new nor secret.
  3. This “discovery” was published months ago.

In fact, it was published by Levinson, in a book titled iOS Forensic Analysis.
