According to Apple, Apple's official map application does not link the user's movement data with the Apple ID, and the user's location information history is not stored in Apple. The information that the data came from is generated by counting the number of requests that users make to the map for directions. Apple emphasized that the data collected is associated with randomly assigned identifiers and is frequently reset, thus protecting user privacy.
