    The location tracking of Apple iPhone and iPad has been a great concern from all Apple device fans and worldwide users ever since being discovered. Last month, a South Korean lawyer, Kim Hyeong-Suk, sued Apple for “amassing of location data without users’ consent” and infringing on his privacy in a lawsuit that was filed against the American company on April 26 and got 1 million won (about US $945) compensation from Apple. Obviously, that is not the end of this case. Kim had said he would draw more iPhone users to sue Apple for the location data collecting. The latest news show that there are over 23000 South Korean iPhone users joined the lawsuit towards Apple for location tracking.

    Apple Location Tracking

    Last month, in an updated version of Apple’s privacy policy, the company added a note that once users agree, Apple and unspecified “partners and licensees” may collect and store user location data. Some detailed content of the upgraded Apple’s privacy policy showed bellow:

    To provide location-based services on Apple products, Apple and our partners and licensees may collect, use, and share precise location data, including the real-time geographic location of your Apple computer or device. This location data is collected anonymously in a form that does not personally identify you and is used by Apple and our partners and licensees to provide and improve location-based products and services. For example, we may share geographic location with application providers when you opt in to their location services.

    Some location-based services offered by Apple, such as the MobileMe “Find My iPhone” feature, require your personal information for the feature to work.”

    However, this upgraded privacy policy could still not comfort iPhone and iPad users about their privacy data. The class-action lawsuit launched by the Mirae Law, Kim’s law firm, might make an end with the tech giant paying millions of dollars in damages for inflicting emotional distress on them through the smartphone’s controversial location tracking feature.

    It is currently reported that Kim’s law firm has charged each plaintiff 16900 won (US $16). No matter what the result would be, Kim’s law firm would benefit at least 9000 won per client.
