    I found this option in iOS 6 under Settings>Privacy>Location Services>System Services, and there's a new option saying Wi-Fi Networking, I'm curious what this does, can anyone help me what this does and what it is? ImageUploadedByiCafe Forums1365651073.587253.jpg

    Wi-Fi Networking - Finds nearby Wi-Fi networks and sends information about them to Apple to help the company build a database of open Wi-Fi networks.

    It's interesting that Apple would want to have a database of open Wi-Fi networks. Would they share that information with us, perhaps using a map? Or maybe you could ask Siri, "Where is the nearest free Wi-Fi?"

    I'm guessing they are more interested in commercial or public free WiFi hotspots (libraries, some drinking and eating establishments etc.) rather than Joe Schmuck who left his home WiFi unsecured. Then again Joe Schmuck deserves what he gets, or rather what he is handing out free, for not securing his network.
