Can law enforcement follow me with my iPhone?

Episode 1181 (43:34)

Bob from Ocalala, FL

Bob says thanks to iFix it, he's been able to fix his own iPhones when they've broken. Leo says that what iFixIt does is great because they believe in the "right to repair," and will show how to do it. (Disclaimer: iFixIt is a sponsor).

Bob is worried that he can be tracked with the GPS tracking from apps. Leo says he can always turn that off, but the benefits of being able to use map apps can be beneficial. And even without the GPS, the cell phone still knows where we are at all times, and law enforcement can find out by making an unwarranted pen register request with the cell phone company. So the benefits far outweigh the concerns.
