Apple: Carrier IQ Still On iPhone 4, But We Don't Read Your E-mail/Texts

Apple tells us there is only one device running iOS 5 that still runs Carrier IQ, and it's the iPhone 4. Other devices running iOS 5, such as the iPad, the new iPhone 4S, and older iPhone models updated to iOS 5 have had Carrier IQ stripped out. But Apple says it has never used Carrier IQ to record keystrokes or personal messages.

 

"It was just for diagnostic data that was sent to Apple, and customers had to actively opt in to that to even provide us that level of information," Apple tells us. "If they opted in, that data was sent anonymously, and in encrypted fashion. We did not record keystrokes, messages or any personal information for the diagnostic data, and we have no plans to in the future." Full Article

Pardon me for not knowing much about this topic, nor caring very much about it, but this is just not something I worry about on a daily basis - if at all.

But perhaps other users here would find this information helpful. Smiley Happy

Yup, Apple has acknowledged that the software is on some devices but they have not used it since upgrading to iOS 5 and will be removed in the next software update. Smiley Happy
