Can Apple track drops with the internal sensors?

    With the accelerometers and gyroscope and whatever else is inside the iPad, could Apple track a fall, or sudden impact?

    If they did, would that be illegal or just 'diagnostic info'?

    They track a lot of other things including location, etc. Does not seem like it would be hard for them to do if they wanted to do so.

    I am with others and do not think they are.

    So are you asking if Apple sends accelerometer/gyro data over the networks or if the accelerometer is track at all? Just so you know, the accelerometer and gyro generates a log file with all movements over the last 60-90 days. This is to ensure that the accelerometer and gyro are working properly. They do not send this info over the air.
