Apple Apps Have Access To Your Private Photos, Report Says

The New York Times‘ Bits blog published a report today suggesting that companies that make apps for Apple’s iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch may have access to the photographs and videos you store on your devices.

When apps ask permission to access a user’s location information and the user grants it, the app “can copy the user’s entire photo library,” the Times reports.

Pros who use their iPhones to make images for business or pleasure should consider pressing “don’t allow” the next time an app asks to use your location data.
