• Over 23000 Korean iPhone users joined the lawsuit towards Apple for location tracking

    Posted on July 19th, 2011 David Brooks No comments

    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.

  • iOS 4.3.3 Update Released by Apple to Fix Apple iPhone iPad Location Tracking

    Posted on May 5th, 2011 David Brooks No comments

    “Underpromise and overdeliver”. Again, Apple tells its fans what he is pursuing for. After the iPhone and iPad location tracking issue, Apple said it would issue an iOS update to fix bugs related to the location data storage of iPhone and iPad in weeks. But on Wednesday, Apple released the updated iOS 4.3.3 to fix bugs, only seven days between promise and delivery. The iOS 4.3.3 is now available through iTunes.

    Apple iOS 4.3.3

    This update iOS 4.3.3 contains changes mainly to the iOS crowd-sourced location database cache, including:

    * Reduce the size of the cache
    * It no longer backs up the cache to your Mac or PC via iTunes upon syncing, so the information isn’t available to anyone with access to your computer.
    * The cache is now deleted from device when users disable the Location Tracking service in iOS’ Settings apps.

    Apple devices which are applicable with the new updated iOS 4.3.3:

    The iOS 4.3.3 update applies to the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad, iPad 2, third-generation iPod touch, and the fourth-generation iPod touch. The iPhone 3G and the second generation of iPod touch are currently not applicable with this new update.

    Apple iPhone

    Apple makes good on his promise. But to further solve such location tracking issues which may involve users’ personal information, maybe we could get a better understanding and satisfied answer on the May 10 Congressional Hearing on Mobile Privacy.

  • Apple and Google Agree to Testify the Phone Location Tracking Issues at the May 10 Senate Hearing about Consumer Privacy on Mobile Devices

    Posted on April 29th, 2011 David Brooks No comments

    The phone location tracking issue for Apple iPhone iPad and Google Android mobile phones has lasted for a period, and it would last longer than we think, especially at Apple’s privacy policy. Google responded to the phone location tracking at Monday while Apple replied this a week after the issue and denied its mobile devices are tracking and collecting data on users’ locations. Both companies have agreed to testify at a May 10 Senate hearing about consumer privacy on mobile devices.

    Apple iPhone Location Tracking

    Ever since the reports of location tracking issue of Apple and Android devices, the US Senate had weighed in. The Committee had written to Microsoft, Nokia, RIM and HP as well as Apple and Google, but only the latter two had been asked to attend the hearings and explain what data they are collecting, how they’re ensuring that data is secured, and how users opt out of being tracked.

    Google Inc. was sued by two Android phone users who said their phones secretly recorded and stored their movements. According to concern over data collection, a Google spokesman Chris Gaither said in an e-mail: “We provide users with notice and control over the collection, sharing and use of location. Any location data that is sent back to Google location servers is anonymized and is not tied or traceable to a specific user.

    However, Apple has denied collecting data from users. “Apple is not tracking the location of your iPhone,” the company said in a statement.Apple has never done so and has no plans to ever do so.” Apple insisted it “strongly” believes that personal privacy is important, but now, the personal privacy of Apple has been skeptical from lawmakers and users.

    The public debate of the mobile phone location tracking has been a long concern. Hope the May 10 hearing would provide a good result.
