    I got a feeling about that Apple is not the only vendor doing this.

    Slot of this is hype and fear mongering. This file has been known about for a long time (since the first iPhone) in forensic circles and lots of websites (if you search for that kind of thing). Now to be far it is a concern in the event of police or a third party taking the phone an stealing the data but there is now a Cydia (jailbreak) app to clear it at regular intervals.

    Also this is why I use a blackberry and its FDE :) No one has cracked it. I also have policies in place so apps can't be installed and web browsing is disabled. If you are worried about this kind of thing you may consider a blackberry or android device (with encryption app). In other words stay secure and safe ;)

    Tools wipe location data from (some) iPhones.

    Note: Two tools are discussed in this article.
