Users Claim iPhone 'Phones Home' to Apple, Discloses Personal Info
November 19, 2007 (Computerworld) -- Speculation that Apple Inc.'s iPhone is itself "phoning home" to the Cupertino, Calif. company with personal information, including which stocks users are tracking, is probably off base, a German security Web site said today.
According to translations of an analysis posted by Heise Zeitschriften Verlag GmbH of Hannover, Germany, while the binaries of a pair of iPhone applications -- the weather and stock applets -- include strings that contain the characters "imei," it's unlikely that the phone's identifier is being sent to Apple.
