Limit Ad Tracking: iOS 6

OK - so here is a story that is getting some buzz lately. It is about the new iOS 6 ad tracking that has been re-introduced. Unknown to most of us, after the upgrade to iOS 6, apps started tracking our behavior and delivering ads to us based on that behavior. Now, granted there is no personal information being tracked but it is possible for that information to be obtained through some other indirect means because the device information is linked to some personal information.

At any rate, here is a walkthrough on how you can stop apps from tracking your behavior - you are still gonna get some ads but at least the apps won't be tracking what you do online.
