Carrier IQ has made quite a stir with its ability to track everything you do on your Android phone, and it turns out that it comes preinstalled on the iPhone as well — albeit a less dastardly version. Here's what it can do and how to turn it off.
Hacker Chpwn discovered Carrier IQ on the iPhone after this week's uproar, and while we still aren't positive what it can track and send, he's fairly certain it doesn't include a keylogger like the Android version. So far we know it can log your phone number, your carrier, your active phone calls, and your location, though it's unclear what it's actually sending back to Apple.
Luckily, there's an easy way to turn it off. Just head to Settings > General > About > Diagnostics and Usage, and tap "Don't Send". That's it! If you're curious about the more technical bits of this discovery, hit the link below.
