Apple pollutes data about you to protect your privacy. But it might not be enough

Re: The third way...

Lots of ways location can be inferred, from GPS, wifi (Google has big database from its maps cars of wifi APs & their location) and phone cell tower data.

So, with many apps unless you wnat them to behave offline only, if they are going to consume data (be it via cellular or wifi) then potential for location related data leakage.

I assume, if my phone is on, my location can be inferred
