The New Zealand Herald reports on Apple's release of software to update how long its iPhone stores users' location information in the wake of privacy concerns. Information included with the update indicates that location information will no longer be backed up on computers and disabling location features will result in location data being deleted. "Apple says the location data won't be kept for more than a week after the changes to the iPhone's operating system are installed," the report states.
