As more information about the “secret” location-data file on Apple’s iPhone 4s and iPad 3Gs becomes available, the story surrounding this discovery is becoming more about the people involved than the location data itself. As it turn out, Alex Levinson, a student at the Rochester Institute of Technology, had long discovered this file in his research and work with forensic firm Katana Forensics. Katana Forensics produces a tool called Lantern, which can extract this data and map it in Google Earth’s KMZ format.
Android users already know about this, but with the latest update to the Google Search app for iOS, Apple users now also get to enjoy this feature.
When Google realizes that you have an upcoming trip on your schedule, it will show you info about your destination, including weather and some tourist info.
