Apple collecting iPhone user data

Uneasy Silence is reporting that Apple is collecting data on iPhone customers as they use their popular weather and stock applications on the device. According to the report Apple is sending user’s IMEI number and data about the information requested to a special tracking server at headquarters: http://iphone-wu.apple.com/ (as seen in the hex editor screen shot above.)

Paranoid types will upset at the fact that Apple is tracking the stocks and weather that you watch but in reality you consented to it when your agreed to the iPhone EULA, which states:

When you interact with Apple, we may collect personal information relevant to the situation, such as your name, mailing address, phone number, email address, and contact preferences; your credit card information and information about the Apple products you own, such as their serial numbers and date of purchase; and information relating to a support or service issue.

You did read the iPhone EULA, didn’t you?
