Every cell phone company tracks you if your cell phone is turned on and that data is available to all law enforcement agencies.
Yes, that is a well-known fact. Another one for you: The police can track you using conventional methods (a policeman follows you) or advanced ones (GPS tracking devices attached to your car). The police also needs permission from a judge for most of such privacy-affecting actions in most civilized countries.
Now, the biggest problem is that Google and Apple are not the police.
